The “me too” movement has sparked a national awareness like never before that powerful people from all walks of life and across many industries have preyed on and exploited vulnerable victims for sexual gratification. In the case of celebrities and Hollywood executives, the power imbalance between perpetrator and victim has created a dangerous climate in which perpetrators were enabled while victims feared retaliation and harming their careers if they rebuked sexual advances. But, in recent years, the collective empowerment of brave women to speak out against these wrongs has made it more acceptable to hold celebrities and powerful executives responsible for their sexual misconduct.  Moreover, the fear of financial repercussion of sexual misconduct has made corporation take these charges more serious and make key personnel moves on account of incidents of sexual misconduct.
