Course Summary

Sexual harassment on the job has come to prominence in recent years. Many accounts, including the crimes of Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein, have brought formerly hidden harassment incidents to public consciousness. The #MeToo movement has responded to allow people the freedom to reveal their experiences of harassment and thus inform the public of the commonplace nature of the events. With public awareness, it is expected that sexual harassment can be reduced and, it is hoped, eliminated.
