This time, it has to be different. Bishops, the prolonged abuse scandal would suggest that you've not done very well taking stock of yourselves.

Nov 9, 2018 | Dear brothers in Christ, shepherds, fellow pilgrims,

We address you as you approach this year's national meeting in Baltimore because we know there is nowhere left to hide.
It's over.

All the manipulations and contortions of the past 33 years, all the attempts to deflect and equivocate — all of it has brought the church, but especially you, to this moment.

It's over.

National Catholic Reporter (NCR) is a religious news source with worldly interests, and though a large amount of its reporting deals with issues of the Catholic church, an equal amount of its coverage is a marriage of the religious, political and social forces shaping public policies and institutions.

Don’t Call It a Comeback: Louis C.K. and His #MeToo Bros Don’t Deserve One

Comedian Louis C.K. (pictured here in 2012) may have Emmys, but he shouldn't have a second chance until he recognizes the gravity of his harassment of women entertainers. Shutterstock

The comedian who masturbated in front of junior women colleagues said he's lost an estimated $35 million. Funny how he didn't mention the pain he inflicted.

Kieran Scarlett, Rewire

Oct 18, 2018 | Almost a year after #MeToo accusations against him, comedian Louis C.K. is returning to the limelight.

Commentators and public alike are occupied with the question: Can C.K. and Hollywood’s other outed abusers regain their celebrity status and our trust? Or, in other words, is there a path to redemption?

Important questions, but I’d like us to consider others. Let’s start with: How do powerful men define loss? And why must we adopt their definitions? How much—or how little—are we willing to ask them to do to make something like amends?

Kieran Scarlett is a culture writer and filmmaker based in Los Angeles.

Sep 28, 2018 | Like millions of Americans, I sat riveted before the television on Thursday watching the quiet, calm, and dignified testimony of a woman, Professor Christine Blasey Ford, who was scarred for life by sexual assault. She sat in a room full of powerful men and described her ordeal at the hands of another powerful man.

Then I watched that accused man, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, yell and scream about how it was all just unfair and a political hit job and a conspiracy by Democrats to get revenge for the 2016 election. His unbridled rage was shared by several other powerful men in the room, especially Senator Lindsay Graham, whose rant seemed to be an audition for a senior appointment in the Trump administration.

A Supreme Court justice is once again on track to be confirmed despite facing sexual misconduct allegations.

Amanda Terkel, HuffPost

09/14/2018 | In November 2016, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) made history by becoming the first woman to serve as ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. In a statement on the milestone, she tipped her hat to the influence of Anita Hill, who launched a movement when she testified about Clarence Thomas’ sexual harassment in 1991. 

“I became a senator in 1992—the Year of the Woman—and became the first woman to serve on the Judiciary Committee in the wake of the Anita Hill hearings. So it’s a special honor to be the first woman to become ranking member of this committee, not to mention the first Californian,” Feinstein said.

Yet women still shoulder too much of the burden when it comes to abuse in the workplace, she says.

Carla Baranauckas, HuffPost

07/30/2018 | When Anita Hill testified in Clarence Thomas’ confirmation hearings for the U.S. Supreme Court 27 years ago and accused him of sexual harassment, she was vilified for coming forward. Since then, however, Hill says the public’s attitude about sexual harassment in the workplace has changed.

“Oh, there’s been a tremendous amount of change,” Hill told John Oliver on Sunday’s broadcast of “Last Week Tonight.” “There’s been a change in public attitude. And there’s been a change in the amount of information that we have about sexual harassment. And there’s certainly more awareness after the #metoo movement.”
