Social media takes an empowering turn

From Bizwomen:

Social media, which too often can be an abyss harboring harassment and hate, has become a place for women to connect to fight sexual harassment and assault.

The most prominent example is the #MeToo campaign, which encourages women to share their stories on Twitter and Facebook and other social media platforms.

Their voices are coming from everywhere. And they’re resonating.

A recent survey showed that more than 50 percent of women have experienced some form of sexual harassment in the workplace. High-profile men in media, fashion, food, and politics have been accused of harassment since the [Harvey] Weinstein scandal broke.
