Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2017 Local News
To help combat the recent fear and conflict surrounding sexual harassment and gender equality, a local woman’s group is channeling its energy toward an unlikely ally – men.
Violence against women has become the forefront of national conversation. The accusations against Harvey Weinstein and the overwhelming “Me too” posts by multitudes of women are shining a light on how many women and girls have been victims of sexual harassment or assault.
“We need men to partner with women to change the culture and find solutions to gender inequalities that still exist in our society,” said Tami Lesser Baldinger, CEO of Jewish Women’s Foundation of the Greater Palm Beaches. “If men stand up, speak out, and invest in women, together we can prevent violence against women and girls.”
