Sexual Harassment: It's All About Power (Duh).

Two pieces that summarize this painfully obvious argument.

Today I want to write about power, and how the very imbalance of power at work between genders is what's at the core of the sexual harassment stories coming out. At PowerToFly (plug!) we've been trying to fix that imbalance for over three years. Perhaps our jobs will get easier now that people are waking up to how inequality rots out our institutions and drives away women's voices.

Two pieces I read yesterday, one from Rebecca Traister and another from my friend Katherine Goldstein, clarify this argument really well. Katherine's piece also shares how we can create workplaces that truly support women. I urge you to read it all.
