Is the #MeToo movement the beginning of a political revolution?
A sexual revolution is underway. Survivors of sexual assault — of which women represent 90 percent — are asserting their control over their own bodies and pushing back against gender inequality in the corporate world. The immediate results have been staggering. Stories detailing sexual abuse and harassment have become regular elements of daily news coverage, leading many perpetrators to issue public apologies and resign or lose their jobs. Overwhelming public support has encouraged others to speak up, leading Time magazine to name “The Silence Breakers” as their Person of the Year. But the question remains: will this movement fundamentally change society?
