Today, renowned movie producer and Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein was found guilty of rape for performing oral sex on Miriam Haley in 2006. The charge carries 5-25 years. He was also convicted of assaulting an unnamed woman as well. He was found not guilty of predatory sexual assault which carries life in prison.
The #MeToo movement is a double-edged sword. Proponents argue it holds the most powerful of men accountable for abusing women. Opponents say the movement unfairly attacks men for minor infractions like flirting with women. Fact is, both sides may have valid points, but women have been sexual victims since the beginning of time.
The #MeToo movement may have flaws, but its potential impact on how women are treated by men in society outweighs any potential flaws it has. For years, women have been oppressed, and this movement offers them a voice.
