Due process around sexual harassment claims needs a complete overhaul

The court of public opinion, entertaining as it is, will not deliver justice.

 Lupita Nyong'o is one of many women to claim Harvey Weinstein assaulted her

When talking about Weinstein, Waterstreet, Gayle et al., the first point to note is that there is a continuum to sexual offences: at one end, sexual harassment in the workplace and the street; at the other, rape and sexual assault.

One thought on “Due process around sexual harassment claims needs a complete overhaul

    I will say this about Gayle. I frankly doubt his word, but given the scandal about his obvious harassment live on TV and undenied, he has no reputation to defame from my standpoint. we already knew he was an egocentric sexist prat. I also have yet to see him put effort in for his BBL sides. His reputation was mighty low and I didn’t know about what he was supposed to have done until he went to court. His reputation in my eyes is just as low. Pick up your bat and piss off is my take.
