An avalanche of sex scandals: Why now?

Almost every day, a new scandal emerges involving some prominent figure accused of sexual harassment.

The avalanche of high-profile stories has coupled with a social media campaign called #MeToo, emboldening women - and men - to take a stand.

Ripple effects are appearing locally, as well. 

Meanwhile, a backlash is emerging that asserts that all this is going too far, conflating childish mistakes with sexual violations.

Lisa Anderson, a Decatur attorney, has dedicated her life to helping those who’ve suffered sexual abuse and harassment.
