The Washington Post: Allegations against Kavanaugh pose test for #MeToo movement
Equal Rights Advocates Executive Director Noreen Farrell is quoted in a Washington Post article about the impact of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s coming forward with her story of surviving sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
As these cases indicate, much of #MeToo’s high-profile impact has been in the entertainment and media world. Noreen Farrell, executive director of San Francisco-based Equal Rights Advocates, said more work is needed to persuade employers in other sectors to crack down on sexual misconduct.
“While we have seen some celebrity-level public shaming over serial harassers and enablers, employers seem to be digging in and resisting change,” said Farrell, noting that the business lobby in California has been fighting hard against proposed anti-harassment legislation.
