The power of #NOW
I am one of the lucky ones. I can’t claim to be a part of any of the women’s movements that have been circulating since the scandalous tales of Harvey Weinstein became public. You see, I’ve never been sexually harassed in the workplace. I’ve never had to deal with the trauma that that entails.
The #MeToo movement launched in America and the #NOW Australia campaign, started by Australia’s Tracey Spicer are wonderful initiatives. They acknowledge and draw attention to the very real and sad circumstances surrounding so many women in the workplace. Harassment, intimidation and abuse are just some of the things that many women have suffered in silence from. Now, thanks to some incredibly brave women leading the charge, the cover surrounding such atrocities is being lifted and women everywhere are telling their own stories.
