From the first tales of workplace harassment in the 1970s, to the political scandals and campus movements of the 1990s, #MeToo, and beyond: are the men behind abuses of power finally getting their just deserts? Reckoning: The Epic Battle Against Sexual Abuse and Harassment tells the story of the movement now gaining steam as pioneering women in the media have exposed the Harvey Weinsteins of the world and flooded the political landscape, creating cracks in the walls of male privilege.
