Naming Harassment

The Weinstein situation is enabling the development of a space in public and private arenas where it’s ok to speak out and say ‘me too’. But there’s some debate around what’s serious enough to voice and report and name. I’m growing to realise that in accepting the rights, or at best the presumed normality of the actions of these men I also choose in my attitude of acceptance to in some way make the problem mine. We need to make our society and culture a place where this behaviour is shunned rather than met with a shrug.
Change begins with actions of bravery.
