The Summer 2019 issue of Boston College Law Review features a profile of BC Law alum Jaffe Dickerson in the article "The Dignity of Work (Is That Even a Thing Anymore?)" by Jane Whitehead. Here is an excerpt from the article.
The #MeToo movement has hit the workplace like an earthquake. Victims of workplace sexual harassment or assault are speaking up. Accused celebrities are losing their reputations, fortunes, careers and even their freedom. Other unnamed bad boys face imminent danger. They start each day fearing accusations of past bad behavior. They live each day with #MeToo hanging over them. If you have bad behavior skeletons rattling around in your closet, what should you do when they come for you?
For men who champion women’s rights in the workplace, 2018 has been a difficult year. We saw sexist or misogynistic behavior and did nothing. We looked away, laughed or smiled or went along to get along. The continuing parade of sexual abusers makes us feel guilty that we could or should have done more. We’re even fearful that our own past behavior included conduct that was “risqué”. It’s “Times Up!” on bad behavior.
