Women’s fight for the right to work free of sexual insult or molestation has been a long, long one. For nearly two centuries, in labor strikes and broadsides, speak-outs, marches, and now in social media, women have protested the ubiquity of sexual harassment and the impunity of its perpetrators. Full Article

    Well put together albeit a bit confusing piece. Not sure if it’s for or against the registry but puts in to light that it is punitive and that the biggest offenders may never even make it onto the list

    I am conflicted about this subject, but many women may find it as frustrating. I’m not a woman but a hairdresser. Women generally have had to be better than men on the job yet historically have gotten less pay, harassed more and subject to scorn from other women for being promoted. I wish more men would look at women not as objects of conquest but as colleagues and equals. It’s odd for me to be so concerned about such things bc of being a RC, but oddly those of us on the registry after our travail generally are more sensitive than most on these kind of issues. What I fear is the backlash of industry not hiring women and risking the consequence sexual harassment lawsuits bring overall. Movements like “MGTOW” have also driven a wedge between the sexes… I was watching how men in our society often get a raw deal:

    Men are easy targets of harm but so are women. Our greatest enemy in society is the US vs. THEM attitude that feeds our judical system and media as a whole. Context and definition. Often times problems are wrongly defined then placed in a context that does more harm than good…The whole SOR is an example of that.

    We registrants need to engage issues in our local community. I appeared before the Orange County Supervisors on 11-14-2017. I was the second speaker under public comments:
