All tagged media attention about sex crimes in the workplace
Extending far beyond the boundaries of accusation and the punishment is a world where prevention strategies can be developed, where the proclivities and appetites of sexual beings can be examined and discussed, where the would-be offenders can be counseled or corrected before the crime is committed.
The multitude of women stepping forward to talk publicly about sexual assaults they have endured over past decades is refreshing. Shining light on male privilege and the power that men exert in the workplace to get their sexual gratification is way overdue.
But what is missing? First, there is no meaningful explanation from the offender, no face to face with the victim. A week later, Harvey Weinstein and Charley Rose and the rest are gone, embarrassed perhaps but their wealth insulates them from further rebuke. There is no courtroom trial, no calling the person to account for their behavior.
