Time magazine named the #MeToo movement its 'person' of the year, highlighting the role companies and nondisclosure agreements play in keeping the victims of abuse silent.
Attention is being placed on sexual harassment and assault in the workplace, but sexual assault occurs in intimate relationships, too. Often, the causes are the same – a desire for power.
Nondisclosure agreements are getting a bad rap these days because they've been used to prevent victims of sexual harassment and abuse from speaking out. But not all are nefarious.
Companies have long tended to protect rather than punish high-profile harassers. That may change as the #MeToo movement inspires more women to speak out.
