GINTA – The many sides of a perpetuating story

IF YOU ARE even somewhat immersed in social media, you have likely come across the hashtag campaign #MeToo, spurred by the recent accusations of sexual harassment and assault by famous movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

A lot of women came forward to tell their own stories of encountering the media mogul and, headline after headline, the ugliness kept flowing. It has also spilled in Canada, with the recent sexual allegations against the Just for Laughs founder, Gilbert Rozon.

These are not cases of entertainment industry sensationalism; sexual harassment happens around us and victims are most often left to address it alone, ashamed, and fearful of speaking up. The campaign drew many of us into the conversation about sexual harassment, and the trauma it inflicts.
