SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN THE WORKPLACE: LONDON FIRMS ISSUE ‘ETIQUETTE’ GUIDES

Men and #MeToo:
The role of men in providing a solution to #MeToo has typically been removed from the conversation. It is clear that a lack of awareness and education has resulted. Not only is the issue becoming more prevalent for over a fifth of the workforce, but moreover, a means to an end becoming an overly challenging issue for workplace decision makers to solve. This data is indicative, not only of an issue that is not fixing itself, but instead, a distinct lack of awareness across both gender sets as to what constitutes as a #MeToo issue, if the issue should be reported and how workplaces can progress. Men need to speak up about the movement, and their place within it, and this can only be done if they are included in the conversation.
