New York’s #MeToo movement is a second chance for justice and compensation

Sexual harassment and assault are particularly worrisome for female workers of high-profile New York abusers, institutions, and corporations.

The male-dominated environments in New York have fielded allegations of sexually assaulting the few women who manage to enter and climb their ranks, often becoming the targets of the male leaders who work there.

Some of New York’s institutions or corporations that have attempted to hide their sexual assault transgressions that are now coming to light include:

  • Direct employers of domestic help
  • The interns and subordinates of powerful politicians
  • Treatment, rehabilitation, and psychiatric hospitals
  • Instances of domestic violence 
  • Homes for unwed mothers

New York’s high-profile abusers, institutions, and corporations have had plenty of time to make gender discrimination complaints disappear into an opaque arbitration system where the names of violators rarely appear and legal precedent isn’t strictly binding–where victims were long ago ordered into private arbitration or gagged by nondisclosure agreements.
