Episode 103 Workplace Protections after #MeToo

The #metoo movement led to a major cultural and policy shift in how sexual harassment is treated in this country. In some states, sexual harassment protections provide a path to justice. But as hosts Kimberly Brooks and Gina Brillon reveal, the changes aren’t distributed evenly. Are the current state policies sufficient to help victims of sexual harassment feel safe at their workplaces? And what happens if they’re not?

For support and resources to address workplace sexual harassment or facilitate training to create a positive and safe culture for all employees – check out these resources: Shiso Consulting, Women Against Abuse, Stop Street Harassment, National Women’s Law Center, Legal Center for Gender Equity, and RAINN or call the 24-hour sexual assault hotline: 800-656-HOPE.
