Hollywood’s Notorious Men Retaliate Against #MeToo Movement

Status: Active

Valentina Stackl of EarthRights International discusses the pervasive use of SLAPPs against #MeToo survivors. Stackl writes, “As #MeToo survivors bravely share their experiences of sexual assault and intimate partner violence, they endure criticism, threats, and renewed emotional trauma. They also face retaliatory lawsuits.” This power imbalance is especially apparent in a number of recent scandals involving high profile men in Hollywood, but it affects numerous other people across the USA, as well.
