Unpacking sexual harassment is not rocket science. You will be surprised by how much you can learn by asking a colleague a few questions over coffee about what makes her uncomfortable and/or what she has or others have experienced.feedback

All quotes about Sexual harassment

Eric T. Schneiderman

No New Yorker should be forced to walk into a workplace ruled by sexual intimidation, harassment or fear, . If sexual harassment or discrimination is pervasive at a company, we want to know.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

Last six months after Fox News ousted its chairman amid a sexual harassment scandal the network’s top-rated host at the time Bill O’Reilly struck a $32 million agreement with a longtime network analyst to settle new sexual harassment allegations according to two people briefed on the matter - an extraordinarily large amount for such cases.feedback

Tom Watson

The latest revelations about Bill O'Reilly are depressingly familiar. They show that 21st Century Fox engaged in a prolonged campaign to cover up allegations of serious sexual harassment by a senior employee instead of investigating the claims and taking action against him. The fact that Fox handed Mr O'Reilly a lucrative new contract worth $25 million months after he reportedly paid $32 million to settle a claim by a colleague is jaw-dropping. It raises yet more questions about the corporate culture at 21st Century Fox.feedback

Amy Ziering

Distributors were unwilling to fund or release the film, and few people were willing to talk on the record. Then the Weinstein stories broke, and it's like an invisible dam collapsed. People at long last are speaking out in large numbers, and we feel this industry, and the country, is finally ready for an unflinching film about the reality of sexual assault and harassment in Hollywood.feedback

Erik Wemple

When Bill O’Reilly appeared last month with Matt Lauer on the “Today” show, it had been five months since he’d been fired from Fox News following a New York Times exposé on his various legal settlements with colleagues for sexual harassment and mistreatment. Yet the dethroned King of Cable News was still as proficient as ever in misleading a television audience.feedback

Arianna Huffington - The Huffington Post

There should be zero tolerance for even one case of sexual harassment. I was totally supportive of having a full investigation of her claims. That's why we brought in a former attorney general to investigate. I don't think you can do a lot more than that.feedback

Amber Tamblyn

For women in America who come forward with stories of harassment, abuse and sexual assault, there are not two sides to every story, however noble that principle might seem. Women do not get to have a side. They get to have an interrogation. Too often, they are questioned mercilessly about whether their side is legitimate. Especially if that side happens to accuse a man of stature, then that woman has to consider the scrutiny and repercussions she'll be subjected to by sharing her side.feedback

Christy Turlington Burns

The best way to protect young models is to keep them in school and off sets until they are adults. But that's only part of the problem. We need to teach our girls, and young boys, how to protect themselves and defend themselves against predators in every area of their lives. Sexual harassment can happen anywhere and at any time. In the playground, in school, on the bus, in crowded public spaces. Accepting this and preparing for it will help more of us know how to handle it when it does happen.feedback

Mike Coffman

We've been putting extraordinary resources into this area. Of all the issues we have on my committee, we have spent more time on sexual assault than any other issue.feedback

Jennifer Johnson - Army

As Army professionals, we expect everyone on our team to live and demonstrate the Army values every day. Every allegation of sexual assault, from an unwanted touch over the clothing to a forcible rape, is investigated. . . . The Army strives to hold all offenders accountable for their actions no matter their position or rank.feedback

Lela Meadow-Conner

The whole world is now aware, in large part due to Rose's efforts, about the rampant sexual harassment within the entertainment industry, and so in her honor, we have pulled together a panel of women filmmakers who will be attending the festival with their films, for a frank conversation, because the message doesn't stop here.feedback

Gretchen Carlson

I think that that was a teachable moment for millions of parents across the country. And that's what I did. I showed that video [to my kids]. And I said, This is not how you treat a human being.' And I don't care what political policies you agree with: taxes, immigration. Who cares? Sexual harassment is apolitical. When somebody harasses you, they don't ask you what political party you're in before they do it, and this is why we should all care. And this is why human decency supersedes any political policy.feedback

Hillary Clinton

Look, we just elected someone who admitted sexual assault to the presidency. So there's a lot of other issues that are swirling around these kinds of behaviors that need to be addressed.feedback

Bert Fields

Variety's story about Bob Weinstein is riddled with false and misleading assertions by Ms. Segel and we have the emails to prove it, but even if you believe what she says it contains not a hint of any inappropriate touching or even any request for such touching. There is no way in the world that Bob Weinstein is guilty of sexual harassment, and even if you believed what this person asserts there is no way it would amount to that.feedback

Nancy Erika Smith

If more and more women feel empowered to speak out, companies may decide that this kind of fallout [from sexual harassment] finally won't be worth it. They can bring in HR procedures and people who are really trying to protect women not just protect the company.feedback

Gloria Allred

Corporate entities need to have clauses in all employment contracts that if you are found to have committed sexual harassment, you are terminated. It has to be black and white, there can be no more grey areas. It needs to be clear that if you commit sexual harassment that you will be terminated without a golden parachute; you leave with nothing. Taking a hardline approach like that is the only way to stop it.feedback

Michael Pachter - Wedbush Securities

This is a necessary move because of the sexual harassment allegation, but I think it's a convenient excuse to replace him.feedback

Mike Feuer

From our prosecutions in this area, I know it takes tremendous courage for women and men to share often intimate details of sexual harassment or abuse. We know this is not just a Hollywood thing–it's a workplace thing, arising all too often in virtually every industry. Indeed, while most people don't work in the entertainment industry, victims of sexual harassment and abuse share many of the very same concerns we've heard about in recent days: Will my job be on the line if I say something? Will I be publicly humiliated? Will anyone believe me – and will anyone stand up for me?feedback

Gretchen Carlson

The costs of coming forward are high. I know first-hand what can await. We are stigmatized as trouble-makers, liars, b*****s, and can have our careers taken away in an instant simply by standing up for ourselves. We must start earlier and encourage young people to use their voice. We must educate teenagers – boys and girls – about sexual harassment. We must really celebrate men who speak out as well.feedback

Kirsten Gillibrand

We know from reports 60 percent of men and 58 percent of women who experience sexual harassment or gender discrimination indicated a supervisor was one of the people engaged in the violations. That is a problem with our command.feedback

Kathleen Parker

Harvey Weinstein may be the tipping point for dealing with sexual harassment.feedback

Erik Wemple

Interviewing Gretchen Carlson requires a touchy reportorial dance. A former Fox News host, Carlson is the brave soul who sued Roger Ailes personally in July 2016 for sexual harassment during her time at the No. 1 cable news outlet. The civil action kicked off a legal inquiry of Fox News plus a raft of explosive investigative stories that ended with the ouster of Ailes, who died earlier this year. She received a settlement that included $20 million and an apology for the hostile workplace.feedback

Laura Dern

I have not spoken to one person, nor will you tonight, who hasn't had an experience with sexual harassment in the work place. It seemed as if it was supposed to be a prerequisite.feedback

Erik Wemple

CNN politics reporter and editor-at-large Chris Cillizza grabbed his Outrage-Timing Stopwatch. He used this device to count the number of days that had passed before former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton denounced the conduct of Hollywood heavy Harvey Weinstein, whom several women had accused of sexual harassment over nearly three decades, according to a news-breaking story in the New York Times.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

In a 2011 Post-ABC poll, 47 percent of Americans said they felt that sexual harassment in the workplace was a serious problem. That number has now risen to 64 percent. Nearly two-thirds of Americans say men who sexually harass female coworkers usually get away with it.feedback

Gretchen Carlson

There's no way in hell she can try and come forward. So many times – well, almost all times – society does not find out how prevalent sexual harassment is in the workplace.feedback

Anthony Rendon

The letter shows that sexual harassment is as prevalent in the Capitol as it is anywhere else in society.feedback

Arabella Weir

We need more powerful females in our industry, and a new willingness from women everywhere to challenge sexist attitudes. Along with the rest of the acting sorority I’ve been reading with great interest the appalling allegations against Harvey Weinstein, who has apologised for his past behaviour but denied non-consensual sex. At the same time I’ve been reminded of the literally hundreds of times I, too, have endured varying degrees of sexual harassment in my nearly 40-year career. And I bet you won’t find a single actress who hasn’t got similar stories to tell. This behaviour was so commonplace it barely warranted comment except as “jokey” tales female actors would swap.feedback

Gretchen Carlson

The bad news is that sexual harassment is back in the headlines, with tales of another powerful man preying on women, insulated by enablers and victims too ashamed to come forward. The good news is that sexual harassment is back in the headlines, precisely because women are finding the courage to tell their stories, and the strength to demand this sick behavior stop.feedback

Gretchen Carlson

I know first-hand what can await. We are stigmatized as trouble-makers, liars, bitches, and can have our careers taken away in an instant simply by standing up for ourselves. That explains why even today, most sexual harassment incidents are never made public.feedback

Jerry Brown

Since this law was enacted, however, thoughtful legal minds have increasingly questioned whether federal and state actions to prevent and redress sexual harassment and assault–well-intentioned as they are–have also unintentionally resulted in some colleges' failure to uphold due process for accused students. Depriving any student of higher education opportunities should not be done lightly, or out of fear of losing state or federal funding. We haven't yet ascertained the full impact of what we recently enacted.feedback

Gloria Allred

Lisa is my daughter and I love and respect her. She has her own law firm separate from mine. She makes her own independent decisions on who she will or will not represent, and I have no role in her decisions. Had I been asked by Mr. Weinstein to represent him, I would have declined, because I do not represent individuals accused of sex harassment. I only represent those who allege that they are victims of sexual harassment. I would like to say that my daughter Lisa Bloom is and and always has been a champion for women's rights.feedback

Gloria Allred

While I would not represent Mr. Weinstein, I would consider representing anyone who accused Mr. Weinstein of sexual harassment, even if it meant that my daughter was the opposing counsel.feedback

Laura Bates

Why didn’t they respond differently has been a regular response to victims’ stories. As if that changes things. In cases of workplace sexual harassment, we are ready to blame almost anybody except the perpetrator. Why didn’t others in the industry blow the whistle? Why didn’t somebody stand up to him? And most of all, the common narrative goes, why didn’t the women do something?feedback

Naomi Wolf

This outpouring could be a turning point. It’s time to name those who have abused us, and treat sexual crimes with the seriousness they deserve. There are many shocks following on from this week’s reports of the sexual violations and rapes allegedly committed by film producer Harvey Weinstein. One shock for me is about the language used by the media to describe them. Almost all early reports referred to victimisation as “sexual harassment”.feedback

Suzanne Jordan

This is a horrific multiple sexual assault on a young female who was simply making her way home after a night out. We would like to thank the members of the public who intervened to help her and possibly prevented her ordeal from continuing even further.feedback

Julia Roberts

If you've been subjected to any kind of abuse or harassment, there are places to go for help, including the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN.org). Or call the National Sexual Assault Hotline 800-656-HOPE (4673).feedback

Samantha Bee

Oh give me a break white Cosby. Nobody asked for your all-about-mea-culpa. Don't blame the Sixties and Seventies for your shitty decision making. It's serial sexual harassment – not a Monkees tattoo.feedback

Samantha Bee

Sexual harassment is rampant in every profession imaginable: medicine, finance, technology, academia, publishing, restaurants. We tried to find one place where women were safe, so we googled 'sexual harassment Antarctica' and we found this article from five f–king days ago. You can't even go to the most remote part of the planet without some dude swinging his cold, shriveled d–k your way. No wonder Harvey Weinstein thinks the entertainment industry will support him.feedback

Jamie Lee Curtis

Perhaps this grotesque power play to 'get some' by this brutish thug of a man and the attempts by him, his lawyer, his board and famous friends to, once again, keep it under wraps and blame the victim will fail. Perhaps the truth will out other sexual harassment, be it from a governor or a president or a presidential candidate or studio head or movie star or executive or anyone else complicit in this billionaire boys club bulls**t that will come to an inglorious end.feedback

Maria Miller

Sexual harassment – of course, we all have. I probably speak pretty bluntly to people and it's not something I would tolerate. But, I think, perhaps, if you haven't got that level of self-confidence, then you won't deal with it. I think you and I would agree that sexual harassment will happen on a very regular basis to women in the workplace. I mean it would be too numerous to give you an example.feedback

Sophie Turner

Sexual assault wasn't something that had affected me or anybody I knew, so I was pretty blasE about the whole thing. Naively so. And then I shot the scene, and in the aftermath there was this huge uproar that we would depict something like that on television. My first response was like, maybe we shouldn't have put that on screen at all.feedback

Samantha Bee

Give me a break, white Cosby. Nobody asked for your all-about-mea-culpa. Don't blame the 60s and 70s for your shitty decision-making. It's serial sexual harassment, not a Monkees tattoo. Predictably, Republicans popped a few Tic-Tacs and moved on the Weinstein scandal like a bitch for partisan gain.feedback

Ronna Romney McDaniel

During three decades' worth of sexual harassment allegations, Harvey Weinstein lined the pockets of Democrats to the tune of three-quarters of a million dollars. If Democrats and the DNC truly stand up for women like they say they do, then returning this dirty money should be a no brainer.feedback

Ashley Judd

I worked with Mr Weinstein twice and although he was bullish in his marketing of the films, he was always professional with me. I had heard rumours of his tantrums and bullying but not of the extreme sexual harassment and abuse that is coming to light now.feedback

Scott Catlin

This letter serves as my formal complaint for the isolation, sexual assault and battery, strip search and intentional infliction of severe emotional distress perpetrated by agents of Homeland Security upon my minor child…. I nicknamed her sunshine when she was little because she's always happy. She's been moody. They stole her light. She's not the same person anymore.feedback

Angela Reddock-Wright

In a criminal matter, it would be up to the District Attorney's office to determine if there's sufficient evidence of sexual assault, or battery or related claims to pursue criminal actions against him. I think it would really depend on if the L.A. County District Attorney's office tries to make him sort of the poster child of this type of behavior and how aggressive they would be in pursuing actions against him.feedback

Seth Meyers

I don't think the tragedy ever ends. That's one of the challenges – trying to find a way to talk about it that is also comedy. We, as a whole staff, had to process it. And it's very hard when you're talking about things like sexual assault to think, I have the perfect joke for this.' So, yeah, it's a conversation. I think all the shows have conversations about how do we talk about this in a way that respects the victims, while also making sure we're not ignoring a big story.feedback

Heather Graham

That was the end of that encounter – I was never hired for one of his films, and I didn't speak up about my experience. It wasn't until Ashley Judd heroically shared her story a few days ago that I felt ashamed. If I had spoken up a decade ago, would I have saved countless women from the same experience I had or worse? The question – and this is not an excuse – is what defines sexual harassment in the workplace? He didn't explicitly offer a trade – sex for work – even though I knew that was what he was implying.feedback

Jimmy Fallon

Harvey Weinstein was fired by his company yesterday for being accused of sexual harassment – not good. They said if he keeps it up, he'll wind up with his own show on Fox News.feedback

Lisa Bloom

I think he has changed. You're using the words 'sexual harassment,' which is a legal term. I'm using the term 'workplace misconduct.' I don't know if there's a real significant difference to most people, but sexual harassment is severe and pervasive.feedback

Rebecca Traister

I have been having conversations about Harvey Weinstein's history of sexual harassment for more than 17 years. Back then, Harvey could spin – or suppress – anything; there were so many journalists on his payroll, working as consultants on movie projects, or as screenwriters, or for his magazine.feedback

Lisa Bloom

The New York Times' allegations, if true, would constitute sexual harassment. However, Mr. Weinstein denies many of them and was not given a fair opportunity to present evidence and witnesses on his side.feedback

Lisa Bloom

Big week at The Bloom Firm, fighting sexual harassment, disability rights, race discrimination, rape, wage and hour cases & more. Stay tuned!feedback

Xochitl Hinojosa

The Democratic party condemns all forms of sexual harassment and assault. The DNC will donate over $30,000 in contributions from Weinstein to EMILY's List, Emerge America and Higher Heights. Because what we need is more women in power, not men like Trump who continue to show us that they lack respect for more than half of America.feedback

Ronna McDaniel

During three-decades worth of sexual harassment allegations, Harvey Weinstein lined the pockets of Democrats to the tune of three-quarters of a million dollars. If Democrats and the DNC truly stand up for women like they say they do, then returning this dirty money should be a no-brainer.feedback

Betsy DeVos

Let me just say that one sexual assault on campus is one too many, but one person denied due process is one too many, and that's really what this is all about. We really need to get to a point where it's fair for all students, and where it is clear with the process is for all students. There've been too many students wronged in a well-intentioned attempt to ensure that this issue is not swept under the rug.feedback

Kevin Kruger

I think the higher ed community has for years wanted an opportunity for review and comment around guidelines related to sexual assault.feedback

Patty Murray

She must reverse this decision immediately, instruct schools to take claims of sexual assault seriously, and start standing up for survivors.feedback

Kelly Behre

When Obama (and Biden) became the symbols of politicians who wanted to take action to combat campus sexual assault, the issue was dragged into the anti-Obama narrative. For example, in her speech this month, DeVos claimed Obama had 'weaponized' the Office for Civil Rights.feedback

Scott Gordon

The defendant in this matter stands as a fugitive and refuses to comply with court orders. As eloquently described by Ms. Geimer, his conduct continues to harm her and compounds the trauma of the sexual assault committed against her that gave rise to this case.feedback

Nicole Bedera
Miriam Gleckman-Krut

There is a tendency on the part of college-age men to define sexual assault according to their own standards, not according to campus guidelines.feedback

Amber Tamblyn

For women in America who come forward with stories of harassment, abuse and sexual assault, there are not two sides to every story, however noble that principle might seem. Women do not get to have a side. They get to have an interrogation. James Woods tried to pick me and my friend up at a restaurant once. He wanted to take us to Vegas. I'm 16' I said. Even better' he said.feedback

Maria Miller

The committee recommendations were received warmly by ministers clearly understood the need to act swiftly yet it remains unclear what changes have actually been delivered. Schools need to have robust and clear ways to deal with allegations of sexual assault and rape. It is completely unacceptable for schools to disregard criminal allegations or to have the victims of rape with no alternative but to leave school.feedback

Arne Duncan

This administration wants to take us back to the days when colleges swept sexual assault under the rug. Instead of building on important work to pursue justice, they are once again choosing politics over students, and students will pay the price.feedback

Woody Allen

Look, let's say this first: I abhor all forms of sexual harassment, period. But it's unrealistic for the government to interfere with people's private lives, and that's it. Take yourself. You're well-spoken, well-educated, you decide to work here. And we develop a romantic interest in each other. We could say, OK, we're attracted to each other, but it's better we just work together.' OK, we could try that. And that may work. But if the attraction is so intense, eventually we're gonna give up! We've tried to avoid it, but we've decided that we're going to get involved.feedback

Lara Bazelon

Hundreds of schools were placed under federal investigation for failing to be tougher in handling allegations of campus sexual assault.feedback

Lucia Graves

The education secretary’s policy switch will let schools off the hook, focusing on the ‘victims of the lack of due process’ rather than serial offenders. As she announced the rollback of Obama-era rules on campus sexual assault, education secretary Betsy DeVos seemed at times less like the head of the Department of Education than the department of rape apologists.feedback

Kirsten Gillibrand

The Department of Education should never turn its back on sexual assault survivors. Never. It would be a huge, devastating mistake if Secretary DeVos weakens enforcement of Title IX. We should be making these policies stronger, not weaker.feedback

Terry W. Hartle - American Council on Education

What we have now is set of requirements, some of which are mandatory, others of which may or may not be mandatory, but the schools cannot be certain. Typically the schools take every requirement and treat it as mandatory. Institutions, in responding to claims of sexual assault, have a responsibility to support the victim and to be fair to both parties. Figuring out exactly how to do that, when there are different stories about what happened, and no witnesses, and almost no evidence, and substance abuse may have been involved, can be extraordinarily difficult.feedback

Liam Kerr

The reality is it will see certain offenders convicted of homicide, serious assault, attempted murder and sexual assault escape a jail term. That's a shocking way to treat victims of crime, and will do nothing to help rehabilitation. Prison is meant to do four things; punish, deter, keep the public safe, and rehabilitate. With these proposed changes, the Scottish Government is utterly neglecting all but one of these.feedback

Wendy Horger Alsup

Trump has exacerbated real issues of immorality and injustice concerning immigration, sexual assault and white supremacy – Scripture isn't gray about these issues.feedback

Noreen Farrell

Women are realizing that going to the next company doesn't mean that they won't suffer from sexual harassment. I'm trying to figure out why all these women are coming forward now.feedback

Chad Dunn

Betsy DeVos wants to pull back protections for sexual assault victims. That’s a bad idea.feedback

Laura Bates

We do definitely still hear from female nurses who are experiencing sexual harassment, in part due to this stereotype that reduces them to sex objects. They're in a difficult position in terms of caring for patients which makes it very challenging for them if that sexual harassment is coming from patients.feedback

Taylor Swift

I want to thank Judge William J Martinez and the jury for their careful consideration, my attorneys Doug Baldridge, Danielle Foley, Jay Schaudies and Katie Wright for fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support throughout this four-year ordeal and two-year long trial process.feedback

Mariska Hargitay

The experience of sexual assault and domestic violence can be extremely isolating. One of the most important points we make to survivors is this: you are not alone. I hope that Taylor's very public experience–and her decision to speak out–not only helps empower other victims to speak up and take action, but offers them solidarity. I'm honored by her dedication and commitment to these issues, and I'm deeply grateful for her support of the Joyful Heart Foundation.feedback

Taylor Swift

I want to thank Judge William J. Martinez and the jury for their careful consideration, my attorneys Doug Baldridge, Danielle Foley, Jay Schaudies and Katie Wright for fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support throughout this four-year ordeal and two-year long trial process. I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this. My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard.feedback

Alicia Nicosia

Volunteers and their therapy dogs have provided child victims of sexual assault with the support of gentle and loving dogs at 65 meetings at the Orange County District Attorney's Office. This successful program is helping to promote justice with compassion.feedback

Jessica Leahy

Perhaps more shocking was the fact that I did nothing. I made no attempt to attract attention, I had no desire to make a fuss … Why? Because of our cultural obsession with raising girls to be 'good.' . We need to change the way we raise boys. I know not all men are handsy-creeps but there are some members of their sex severely letting the team down. Too many men are silent bystanders to sexual harassment which is too often seen as a women's issue, when it's clearly a human issue.feedback

Noreen Farrell

The studies and surveys confirms one-in-three women have experienced sexual harassment at work, and it's the No. 1 complaint we receive. I think this is the tip of the iceberg because women are afraid to complain.feedback

Noreen Farrell

I think that too often we see women who don't have all of the power and influence of Taylor Swift assume that sexual harassment is the price of a paycheck.feedback

Maya Benia

I have been a Swifty for 11 years. I adore her so much. I think she's really brave for speaking up about sexual assault.feedback

Adam Coogle - Human Rights Watch

I think it is a really a positive step forward towards ending impunity for sexual assault and ending violence against women, but also (for) improving the rule of law.feedback

Belinda Robinson

We know that the way a disclosure of sexual assault is handled in the very first instance can make all the difference to the recovery of the victim or survivor. This work will help ensure that all students will receive a compassionate and supportive response if they choose to disclose their experience to a university staff member.feedback

Gloria Allred

Ms. Haddish appears to have made a laughing matter of the serious issue of drugging and sexual assault, but drugging and sexual assault are not a laughing matter. These allegations against Mr. Cosby are serious and not funny and should not be made the subject matter of attempted humor. Ms. Haddish should consider apologizing to those individuals who have been victims of sexual assault after being drugged.feedback

Steve Chabot

Bill Clinton was impeached for perjury. It had something to do with the fact that he had a history of sexual harassment of women.feedback

Shauna Thomas

For months we urged the USGA and LGPA to move this tournament. They ignored us. Now, they are allowing Trump to use this tournament, and sadly the players, to benefit his own self-interests. The USGA and LPGA could have made a clear and unequivocal statement against sexual assault by moving this tournament.feedback

Lisa M. Dario

When we began this study, we thought for sure that we would find that females who were sexually assaulted would exhibit higher depression scores than males who were sexually assaulted. I think this is probably because of antiquated ideas that men and women experience emotions differently. What we actually discovered, much to our surprise, is that sexual assault is traumatic regardless of gender.feedback

Lisa M. Dario

Unless you're a juvenile or an inmate, there's very little research on sexual assault in men.feedback

Betsy DeVos

They made the point that we're not saying that sexual assault victims don't have important rights. We're just saying that the system has to be fair.feedback

Randi Weingarten - American Federation of Teachers

For months, DeVos' Education Department has sent a chilling message to students and survivors by openly questioning Obama-era rules to protect students. DeVos' meetings today with so-called men's rights groups, and other fringe groups that want to silence sexual assault survivors' voices, legitimatize those efforts.feedback

Ashley Swartz

For women who come out [about sexual harassment], dimes to dollars it was not the first time. They just wanted it to be the last time.feedback

Danyelle Dyer

I was pretty outraged. But I have channeled that rage into a more positive outlet, which, for me, is sharing my story and empowering other victims of sexual assault.feedback

Brian Schmidt

This is an exciting new initiative and reaffirms the university's strong commitment to do everything we can to stop all forms of sexual assault and harassment.feedback

Katherine Redmond Brown

That's a big risk to bring on somebody with a history of violence, of sexual assault, of domestic violence. I think it's seen as basic risk management and to ensure the students are safe. That's a huge obligation.feedback

Michele Landis Dauber

Today we take the first step. Judge Persky has a long history of leniency in cases involving sexual assault. Here in Silicon Valley, women have had enough.feedback

Bill Cosby - WireImage

The current propaganda that I am going to conduct a sexual assault tour is false. Any further information about public plans will be given at the appropriate time.feedback

Ebonee Benson

I just want to be clear. The town hall meetings are not about sexual assault.feedback

Jodi Omear

It would be more useful if Mr. Cosby would spend time talking with people about how not to commit sexual assault in the first place.feedback

Aisha Taylor

This guy never ceases to shock and disappoint. I think there's only one thing you need to know about how to avoid sexual assault; don't sexually assault anybody!feedback

Danyelle Dyer

I was pretty outraged, but I have channeled that rage into a more positive outlet, which, for me, is sharing my story and empowering other victims of sexual assault.feedback

Ebonee Benson

The statute of limitations for victims sexual assault are being extended. So this is why people need to be educated on, a brush against a shoulder, you know anything at this point can be considered sexual assault, and its a good thing to be educated about the laws.feedback

Kristina Ruehli

This has been a particularly difficult case in it's factual pattern. I think with a jury, perhaps some may have judged Andrea by what THEY would have done in her place – perplexing to some – rather than that in fact a non-consensual sexual assault DID occur. On the other hand, Andrea made a difference that is significant. This is not the end. Thanks to her fellow accusers in California, Nevada and Colorado, laws were changed. There is no reason that can't continue. There is going to be a retrial. Other sexual assault victims find it easier to speak out. It ain't over 'til it's over.feedback

Lena Dunham

Bill Cosby's trial is about much more than Bill Cosby. When women see justice served, their own fear & trauma are eased. When they don't, survivors of sexual assault have to watch every day as the legal system calls them liars and denies their truth. It's an unimaginable grind. My heart is with every survivor reliving the erasure of their own experience today. I see you. I love you. It's okay to check out of the news and honor yourself today. Do whatever you need to feel whole.feedback

Kevin Steele

We will reevaluate and review our case. We will take a hard look at everything involved and retry it. Our plan is to move this case forward as soon as possible. This case is about a drug-facilitated sexual assault. It doesn't matter what you look like or who you are. Our job is to follow the evidence where it takes us. We have done that.feedback

Bruce Castor

My opinion continues to be that Ms. Constand was probably the victim of a sexual assault.feedback

Justin Prentice

Like most people, I think it's very normal when you hear about a case of rape or sexual assault to immediately be angry at the person doing the rape, which of course I still am. And it's an important thing.

I did a lot of research. I had a psychiatrist and a sexual assault expert on speed dial. It's a lack of education. These people, one, they may have a sense of arrogance in that they can get away with whatever they want to due to the sports or money or power or what have you. But then on top of that, they're not properly educated on what consent is and what sex should look like and what a healthy relationship should look like.feedback

Veronique Valliere

We have expectations that are misguided about how people respond to traumatic events, especially sexual assault. Much of that comes from the fact we misunderstand what sexual assault is. Most of us have this expectation most rapes are violent, involve strangers etc. Most times it's not violent. It's perpetrated by somebody you know and trust. Victims are confused by what happened to them and they don't necessarily want to go through this process, and they don't want to go to law enforcement.feedback

Anne Molyneux

You have saved lives, you have done work others were not willing to do, you have shown commitment to the NHS, you have given time to work for charity. This was a sexual assault. What the incident demonstrates is your sense of entitlement and your instinct to rely on your power to do as you pleased.feedback

To survivors everywhere, including to Uber's own employees, it communicates a belief that women lie about sexual assault. To seek to discredit a survivor by reviewing her confidential medical records is not only a stunning violation of privacy; it reinforces all of the sexist and misogynistic beliefs about sexual assault. It's the definition of rape culture.feedback

It is an organizational manifestation we have, and we just can't have, even if there is just one ... the best organizations are ones built for women to thrive.

Almost like Andrew Dice Clay, the stand-up comedian: Does he really do the things that he's saying or is that his act? And in Donald's case, I equated it that way. When he said what he said, I'd like to think if I had thought for a minute that there was a grown man detailing his sexual assault strategy to me, I'd have called the FBI.feedback

This is a company that over and over again, when no one was watching them, made choices against women's rights. They made choices to stand with the perpetrators of sexual harassment.

It's important to teach this company a lesson that other companies will then see.feedback

It felt very uncomfortable, very humiliating and very degrading. But my presumption was this was what I needed to do to get better. I feel like I have relived my abuse with an audience. No sexual assault victim wants attention drawn to the parts of their body they want to hide forever. My trust had been used against me as a weapon, and I never wanted to trust again.

It's just devastating for women. They suffer more from chronic asthma and arthritis, for example, which are pre-existing conditions. And one of the most egregious situations would be the undermining of protections for people who are survivors of domestic violence or sexual assault. There were really horrific stories about this happening before the Affordable Care Act – it could be the provision of preventive HIV medicine after a sexual assault or receiving counseling for trauma related to that. People are really scared for their health and their economic security.feedback

I'm in the very privileged position to be able to say whatever the fuck I want most of the time, but when you work in a corporate infrastructure, the challenge of coming out about sexual harassment is so massive.

The issue of sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace will not be resolved until we have a diverse work force – at all levels of the corporate world. There is little hope that claims of mistreatment will be handled fairly with the astonishing imbalance of power between men and women at work. When you know that reporting an issue puts your career at risk, exposes you to possible retaliatory actions, and potentially could sideline you at that organization you think twice about whether it's worth it.feedback

There's a mountain of evidence that the Murdochs are not fit or proper to own Sky.

I think a lot of numbers are being overreported in terms of what the ad revenue is from O'Reilly's show.

If they continue to do this in the way that they have done, they need to go to jail. It's coming out of the mouth of a man who has said some horrible things about women. Don't forget he talked about grabbing women in their private parts, and because he was important he could get away with it. And so they are two of a kind.feedback

Today Donald Trump, president of the United States, came to the defense of Bill O’Reilly, host of the cable-news-leading “O’Reilly Factor.” The King of Cable News finds his long career in danger of ending sourly after the New York Times outed him as a serial generator of complaints from female co-workers — mostly for sexual harassment. In an interview, Trump gave O’Reilly a clean bill of health on this front, saying, “I don’t think Bill did anything wrong.” That remark came in a recently published interview with the New York Times.feedback

Ever since the New York Times reported a series of sexual harassment settlements surrounding his workplace behavior, Bill O’Reilly has attempted to ride out the crisis through minimal acknowledgement. Sure, he issued a statement implausibly blaming the settlements — five of them, for sexual harassment and simple abuse — on his status as a big, fat target for complaints. On his program on Monday and Tuesday nights, however, the King of Cable News refrained from addressing the matter, an omission suggesting that O’Reilly has no good defense.feedback

By going out to work they halved the male wage, so a male wage no longer supported a family. So women had to go out to work to support the family. So for two in three women it really was a problem. The advent of the nursery has been awful. Because it's so convenient, because you don't have the responsibility of bringing up your own child. You put its care, its information, its understanding into the hands of someone else. In my youth, what is now seen as sexual harassment was seen as welcome attention.feedback

Sexual harassment of students by staff members has reached epidemic levels in British universities. Young women are often terrified about the consequences if they make a complaint about a staff member. So often when they do the university's chief concern is to downplay any wrongdoing and protect its own reputation by keeping the whole thing quiet. The penalty for violating the no-contact rule should be swift termination with a public statement and a mandated report to a central UK registry.feedback

There is no obligation on universities to record or report these issues, which means there will be many cases which just fall below the radar of this sort of inquiry.

Victims are often accused themselves when they go before a tribunal. This woman here is accused of being a manipulator, wanting to take her boss' job. She's also accused of not showing any emotion, so therefore she's not credible – since a victim of sexual harassment is supposed to cry non-stop.feedback

It is our sincere hope that today's verdict strongly sends the message to victims and to perpetrators that sexual assault will not be tolerated in our communities.feedback

Sexual assault is a heinous form of violence and it is a stark contradiction to Morehouse College at its best. The information anonymously shared on Twitter was our very first indication of this incident. Now that we are aware of these allegations, we are determined to pursue the investigation to the fullest extent possible.feedback

It was the early 1960s. Sexual harassment and stalking were terms that didn't exist back then.feedback

Maureen Ryan - The Huffington Post

Sexual assault happens in the world. It's something that we process through popular culture. The people making it should really take it upon themselves to bring out all the aspects of that experience – make it at least as much about the person who survives the attack as the person who perpetrated it.feedback
