The #MeToo Movement saw a number of women come forward to give their stories of being sexually harassed, assaulted and even raped, in some cases.
Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is the most notable name to having fallen the hardest after being accused of sexually assaulting dozens and dozens women. His case is currently making its way through the court system.
Comedian and actor Bill Cosby is currently time in prison after decades of drugging and raping women.
In some instances, the #MeToo movement has been a good thing. Someone who sexually harasses anyone, regardless of the victim’s gender, should feel the repercussions. That’s an idea I believe most people will generally agree upon.
However, there have also been a number of false sexual assault claims that have been brought forward and the media has also equated inappropriately touching someone to full blown rape, in many other instances.
Well, now apparently a new study from an organization led by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg finds 60% of male managers are uncomfortable interacting with female employees. The study also finds that men mangers are 12 times more hesitant to mentor a woman and 9 times more hesitant to travel with a women for business purposes.
A new study from @LeanInOrg found 60% of male managers say they’re uncomfortable interacting with women at work, up 32% from 2018. Workplace interactions that men are nervous about include mentoring, socializing, and having 1-on-1 meetings.

Is this woman serious? What did she expect would happen?
If a man thinks he’s going to be accused of sexually assault and it’s a he said-she said situation, whose word do you think people will believe? Who will be the one arrested? Who is likely to be the one fingerprinted and charged?
This is the situation the #MeToo movement has created.
