  1. Introduction

    There has been a shift from a social order in which women did not have courage to make harassment public to a society where numerous of them now observe they may both be understood and approved by individuals with the authority to accomplish change. (Onwuachi-Willig, 2018) The #MeToo campaign may further cognizance and galvanize policy and advocacy endeavors (Brown, 2016; Kliestik et al., 2018; Lazaroiu, 2017; Nica, Potcovaru, and Mirica (Dumitrescu), 2017; Machan, 2016; Popescu Ljungholm, 2016a, b) with reference to matters that shape physical, mental, and emotional health. (Agathis, Payne, and Raphael, 2018)

  2. Literature Review

    There is unambiguous annoyance over the manner women have been behaved toward at work, and the #MeToo campaign has rendered useful the intensity of that indignation in a fashion this sphere of the law has rarely seen. (White, 2018) Disclosures that top executives preserved their jobs in the past without being affected by numerous harassment complaints indicated that employers were unsuccessful in willfully regulating the issue. (Tippett, 2018) To discourage workplace sexual harassment, the law requires a strategy that is more determined than appeasement and settlement. Managers should experience the severity of cross-examination at legal proceedings, whereas employers should handle drastic amends for passivity and guilt in workplace abuses. (Davis, 2018)

  3. Methodology

    Using and replicating data from Bucknell Institute for Public Policy, DW, Morning Consult, National Sexual Violence Resource Center, University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll, and YouGov, we performed analyses and made estimates regarding percentage who say the #MeToo movement has made them more concerned for young women and the sexual harassment or assault/young men and the false allegations of sexual harassment or assault they could face, percentage who think the following behaviors constitute an act of sexual violence or assault: sexual intercourse where one of the partners does not give give their consent, unwanted touching (such as groping or fondling), masturbating in front of or showing one's genitals to others without their consent, sexual intercourse with partner who is severely intoxicated due to alcohol or drugs, watching someone in a private act without their knowledge or permission, and unwanted verbal remarks that are provocative or unsolicited, percentage who consider that attention to sexual assault and harassment is going to improve most women's lives, leading to unfair treatment of men, and helping address gender inequality, and percentage who claim that the #MeToo movement has (not) gone too far/has been about right.
