Iowa Sexual Harassment Reports Increase Following Start of #MeToo Movement

November 29, 2017

Local and statewide sexual harassment victim advocacy groups say they have seen an increase in victims coming forward and speaking out since the start of the #MeToo movement.

“It might be a co - worker who makes jokes that make you uncomfortable or who is touchy feely with people inside your office. That`s where it starts. It doesn't happen overnight with just the powerful and monied individuals doing it,” says associate director for the Iowa Coalition Against Sexual Assault, Kerri True – Funk.
