In the wake of the inspiring but incredibly upsetting #MeToo movement,1 I find myself concerned not only for the women who have already experienced sexual harassment, and certainly there are many, but also for those yet to come. Some will unfortunately experience the same pain, fear, humiliation, and stigma of sexual harassment as the stories being brought to light by the brave women who have been reporting their experiences today. In addition, I worry about the potential for gender-based neglect, an unintended backlash in response to this bright light.
