Not an isolated phenomenon, [sexual harassment] belongs on a continuum of mutually reinforcing behaviors and messages that permeate women’s lives…
Sexual harassment will abate when women forbid its trivialization and minimization as “misconduct,” or “inappropriate workplace behavior” and when women refuse to tolerate the impunity afforded Clarence Thomas, A Supreme Court Justice(!) and President Donald Trump.
Sexual harassment happens within and because of its context: a society whose psycho-sociological, cultural, political, and economic structures function to subordinate women and simultaneously to connect male power with sexual domination, and system-wide domination based on sex.
