The proliferation of high-profile sexual harassment  and sexual assault claims in recent months has been staggering, and it is a safe bet that such claims will greatly increase in number in the New Year. To be sure, victims of such harassment have found courage in the wake of the changing political climate, particularly in light of the number of serial offenders who have been unceremoniously removed from extremely lucrative positions. The balance of power and fear of the power that has been wielded for years by perpetrators of unwanted advances and, at times, sexual assaults, has shifted in favor of those who have for too long been victimized in employment settings.
