This Is a Turning Point for #MeToo—But It’s Not the End
If fairness were really the goal of critics of #MeToo, they’d focus their ire at worthier targets than struggling actresses and photographers – they’d be furious at the powerful people and companies that have ignored the safety and well being of those who admire and rely on them. “This fallacy that the courts or the public is requiring that anyone who has made a stream of remarks should be fired, that’s a very unhelpful road to go down,” says Sunu Chandy, Legal Director of the National Women’s Law Center. The current movement to hold men accountable for crossing lines, both personal and professional, shouldn’t live or die based on any one story. As long as activists, advocates and survivors stay focused on how many different options for justice exist, it doesn’t have to.
