December 9, 2017: Power & Sexual Abuse
Headlines today are filled with talk of Donald Trump’s sexual abuses of women. “Women Accusing Donald Trump of Sexual Abuse Call for Congressional Probe” and “Lawmakers Demand Accountability over Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Trump“. Exploitation of women is just one symptom of other kinds of privilege that make certain people feel entitled to take what they want in life. One can only hope that even the President of the United States will be held accountable for his abuses of power over women, which should be taken no less seriously than abuses of–say finance matters–might be.
