A new trend is gaining traction on Twitter as women across the US are stepping forward with their own stories of sexual harassment.
Lawyers are now using the hashtag to share their experiences, sharing personal experiences that are not only shared online, but also in courtrooms, where it’s common for women to file complaints.
Women are increasingly stepping forward as they are encouraged to speak out and share their stories, with the hashtag being used by hundreds of women each day.
The hashtag has now been used by more than 500,000 women in a single day, with one lawyer sharing her story on Twitter.
Her account has more than 8,000 followers, and she has been using it to share her experience of sexual assault at the hands of her former boss, a man who has since died.
The law firm, Lacey & Wren, which is based in New York, told Business Insider that the trend has been building and has now grown to include women across all sectors of the law.
“Our clients are now speaking out because they’re afraid that their workplace may not treat them fairly if they do,” a Lacey lawyer, who asked to remain anonymous, said.
“Women are now becoming more comfortable coming forward to share what happened and the legal system can’t protect them anymore.”
Lawyers and judges, lawyers and judges – this is an industry in crisis!
#MeToTheFutureThe Lawyer is a social media platform for women and men who represent individuals in the law, education, healthcare, finance, and more.
We’re also in the midst of the most important period of our lives: our teenage years.
According to the National Association of Bar Examiners, more than 9,000 new cases of sexual misconduct were filed in 2017, and nearly 6,000 cases of rape and sexual assault were reported.
Sexual harassment is not just a problem in the legal arena, but a systemic issue that affects the workplace as well.
A study conducted by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research found that female lawyers have been the target of sexual comments and threats by male colleagues in the past three years.
The National Women’s Law Center released a report in June 2018 saying that women who work in the private sector face more verbal harassment than any other group of professionals, including the medical, legal, financial, and healthcare professions.
In the case of a female employee who was fired for reporting a colleague’s inappropriate conduct, she told HR she had to tell her boss, who told her she was not a good lawyer.
This is the first time this trend has emerged in the US, and it’s growing rapidly across the country.
It’s a sad fact that, like many other industries, we’re now dealing with the fallout of sexual violence in our workplaces.
But it’s not just women who are feeling the effects of sexual assaults in their workplace.
People of all ages, races, genders, and sexual orientations are sharing their experiences on social media with a common goal: to end sexual harassment in their own lives and workplaces.
