Sexual Harassment in the Weekend Papers
by Michael Fox
From the QuadCitiesOnline to the Seattle Times, the weekend papers have stories about women who have chosen to fight back against sexual harassment. In Quad Cities, it is a support group started by a woman who didn't file a suit, while in Seattle it is a women who has already collected nearly a million dollars. You would think after all the news media attention and the corporate training, the problem would be diminishing, but it doesn't seem to be. Then on the other hand, who would think that politicians with great careers would risk them for sexual dalliances e.g. Gary Hart, Henry Cisneros and the list goes on. Maybe it just shows that there is more truth than we would like to think in the old joke about what (many) men really think with.
