Just like this, and thank you for writing it. If there’s one thing #metoo showed the world it’s the power of shining a light on the monsters in the dark. Same lesson we use with 5 year olds who are scared of monsters in the closet. Turn on the light and the monsters disappear. So we talk. Loudly and frequently and we don’t stop until we are heard.
Because here’s the thing. As the saying goes, sh*t rolls down hill in every organization and the bigger it is, the more it happens — but change doesn’t work that way. Change starts at the bottom. With voices joined together, loud and clear, until they can’t help but hear.
Women did not get the vote by saying “please, sir” and we won’t get respect in the workplace or equality or equal pay that way, either.
