The Harvey Weinstein scandal persists in the headlines as women continue to come forward with accusations of sexual harassment and assault against the media mogul. In response, hundreds of thousands of victims of sexual harassment have shared #MeToo on Facebook and Twitter in a show of solidarity. Many are calling this a tipping point to creating a more open and productive conversation on how to combat toxic workplace cultures. Yet. EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum says we as a society still need to take action. She joins Soledad O’Brien for a conversation on why victims and by-standers don’t report their experiences with sexual harassment, how workplaces promote a culture consent, and how non-disclosure agreements keep “super star” harassers on the job.
