Guest: Valerie Hudson, PhD, Professor of International Affairs in Texas A&M University’s Bush School of Government and Public Service, Director of the Program on Women, Peace and Security Allegations rolling in against high-profile men in Hollywood and other industries are stomach-turning. There’s a sense that a dam has been broken. The flood of #MeToo posts from women on social media sharing their own experiences of sexual harassment and assault has stunned a lot of people: more than one-and-a-half million posts thus far from celebrities and members of congress and the friends in your own Facebook feed. It shatters any notion that misogyny and mistreatment of women are a thing of the past.
