After the New York Times published its bombshell report on the sexual-harassment allegations against Hollywood titan Harvey Weinstein, many women took to social media to share stories of their own “Harveys” in what has now become an unfortunately familiar ritual.

It’s representative of a larger dynamic at play: women are becoming increasingly emboldened to speak up, but the fact that they keep having to do so is indicative of just how pervasive this behavior is.
