Henry Cavill says he's scared to date post-#MeToo because he doesn't want to be called a rapist. Is he alone?
Ultimately, treating #MeToo as something abnormal because it holds men accountable for their behavior “speaks volumes” about men who feel that way, Durvasula says. “A potential partner wants to feel desirable and attractive, not like a prize or prey. There’s a difference.”

She created a document to warn women of sexual harassers. It’s haunted her ever since. - The Washington Post
“The past months, including the actions taken by Harper’s, have shown me how much risk all of us who used [the spreadsheet] took in trying to shield one another from harm,” Donegan told me.

“The choices that Harper’s made made it clear to me how much persistence and resolve will be required in the ongoing fight for women’s rights and dignity.”

And should you think for a moment that the #MeToo movement has gone too far, consider how quickly we’re hearing of comebacks by the likes of comic Louis C.K., NBC star Matt Lauer and celebrity chef Mario Batali.

Timeline: Susan Fowler's memo and a year of tech reckoning - Axios
or a long time, Silicon Valley's stories of harassment were chalked up to the industry's gender imbalance, but the past year has shown that it's part of a larger societal problem that's finally getting attention. Still, holding employers and harassers accountable remains a challenge.

People are completely missing the point of Oprah’s amazing Golden Globes speech.
But what Winfrey and Obama talk about is the limits of top-down power. It is one of the great sins of this celebrity age that we continue to misread this message as a call to turn anyone who tries to deliver it into our savior. When someone tells you “I alone can fix it,” you should run screaming for the emergency exits. When someone tells you to get off your ass and fix it yourself, you should think first about running for office yourself.

Since the 2016 election, the cry one hears constantly from the left is “who will lead us?” But Democrats should have learned more than they have from November’s stunning electoral successes in Virginia. The lesson should have been that extraordinary and unknown candidates, including inspired and inspiring first-timers, could win elections without fame or fanfare.

Maybe it’s destined that nobody will ever again be elected president who doesn’t have a billion-dollar media brand behind them. But the speech I heard last night was about using a billion-dollar media brand to remind young women of color that they, too, have the power to save us all.
