Washington Post: After Kavanaugh-Ford Hearing, Does MeToo Face a Backlash?
The Associated Press spoke with Executive Director Noreen Farrell for an article that appeared in the Washington Post, U.S. News & World Report, and many other news outlets, about the possible effects of the sexual assault hearings regarding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on the #MeToo movement.
Noreen Farrell, executive director of San Francisco-based Equal Rights Advocates, worried that some sexual abusers also might feel emboldened if Kavanaugh eventually is confirmed for the Supreme Court.
“With the right pedigree, ample resources to secure the backing of high-profile friends, and the right air of entitlement, many privileged predators will continue to rise to position of immense power influencing the lives of women,” Farrell said.
