Since it appears dudes may be struggling with what to say in the face of the HW harassment nightmare, here's a hint...Actions, not words.
Allen claims no reports "with any REAL seriousness?" This, folks, is the definition of the "culture of permission." twitter.com/aterkel/status…

With that said, just one query remains: What kinda messed up world are we in that a gal w/a PhD in Neuroscience has no insurance?
3) Do not let fear cause you to abandon those rights. Brave souls left them to our care, for the benefit of those who follow.
2) Know your rights, as well as all the means by which they can be brought to bear; and
1) If we continue to judge ourselves by appearance, we are giving permission to others to do so.
Obviously, this is quite the undertaking, and for all our steps forward, we still have a long road ahead. A few thoughts for that road:
It's important for women to define how we expect to be treated, and to consistently reinforce that in every aspect of our culture.
That said, women cannot make this change alone. It is a societal problem. But, we can't expect men to lead on this issue.
I believe women supporting each other will go a long way toward creating an environment where victims come forward early and w/o fear.
Thus far, the only way I've found to balance the scale is to stand beside those brave enough give testament to truths, evident or not.
It isn't common, it isn't easy, and, for some, it isn't safe. So it has been long before our time, and so it will be long after.
And, the permission I speak of is not that of the victim, but of society. Speaking truth to power is a "thing" because of what it isn't.
Regardless, neither brains nor beauty insultate one from harassment and abuse. Power, opportunity and permission fuel those vices.
If there are sides to this (and I submit there are not), I would far easier count myself as the smart girl, not the pretty one.
I appreciate Mayim's perspective. It's a relevant contribution to the dialogue. I'm surpised, though, by how unaware she is of her own bias.
A prime example of how we divide ourselves: Mayim Bialik: Being a Feminist in Harvey Weinstein’s World nyti.ms/2z5Oo4m

Will the next one, "Isolated Pawns" be the one? Dunno, but here's a teaser from it: "They are polishing their weapon; their weapon is us."
Hmm, the tweets re: To Kill A Mockingbird are a good way to start the day b/c they remind me of a life goal: Write a Book Folks Want to Ban
My, my, what splendid subleties you have, #MrRobot . 😊@whoismrrobott@wearefsocietyy

Starting to seem the timeline for the LV shooting might make more sense if viewed absent presumption of guilt.
At the end of our first semester, when I was top of the class, and he was at the bottom, I inquired of him, "Define superior?"
Believe it or not, the dude was actually trying to pick me up. An eye-roll or two later, I walked away, knowing time would tell. It did...
His query was clear; it was whether my family was well-to-do. He followed that w/a remark @ being genetically superior b/c he had blue eyes.
You know, keep hearing The Zuck wants to be Pres, but sounds like who we really need is Sheryl Sandberg. C'mon, girl, lean in! ;)

Reminds me of a guy, first year of law school, who asked if I was "someone in the community?" To which I replied, "Isn't everyone?" But, ->
Excellent illustration. Also, speaks to how socio-economic disparity impacts. I, for one, would have been left standing near the start. twitter.com/JKCorden/statu…
It's easy to console the conscience with the notion there is no choice. Truth is, there is always a choice. The question is one of courage.
1) Refuse to work w/him; 2) File claims w/ unions and/or State/Fed agencies (3rd parties can report); 3) Boycott associated businesses. etc
I see folks claiming those who knew had no recourse if Weinstein victims did not report. Not true. It's called collective action. Many ways:
PS Bezos, you can leave the check for my product idea in my "Prime" box. 😉
And, naturally, once created, there will be huge industry for attractive "Prime" delivery boxes. Not rocket science, y'all...
Box could even be equipped with same Smart Lock technology referenced in article that could be opened remotely by owner via phone.
To that end, the "Prime Box" could attach to car, or member's front door, porch, etc. This removes privacy & safety concerns w/ car access.

Been saying this F.O.R.E.V.E.R.: Foreign intelligence agencies might be using your anti-virus software against you washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost…
Side bar: Very insensitive, especially for a female-driven program, to make jokes at the expense/pain of other women.
And, & this is a big AND - Upon notice, management has a legal obligation to investigate & remedy regardless of whether claim is w/drawn.
There are several shows/events where jokes re: Weinstein's conduct made (30 Rock is one), so clearly Board on notice even if claims w/drawn.
You have the moment and momentum ladies, use it to bring about something positive.
And, I, for one, would have greatly appreciated the opportunity to boycott anything and everything associated with him.
