Brushstrokes: Harassment

In the aftermath of the #MeToo movement, there has been a lot of conversation around sexual harassment and systemic misogyny and how men in power enable it, but it is equally important to have a conversation around how men can themselves combat such a system and contribute to creating a safe, inclusive, affirming environment for women and people of other minorities.
