In the #MeToo era, victims have increasingly turned to the media and the Internet to organize and share their stories of workplace sexual assault and harassment. Given the difficulties of litigating sexual harassment cases, these tools can often prove more effective in defeating sexual harassment than traditional legal channels. We discuss the role that non-litigation tools such as the press and social media can play in addressing toxic workplaces, and in assisting attorneys and clients to achieve success in both litigation and non-litigation contexts. This panel also discusses the role of attorneys in educating the public about legal and non-legal remedies for victims of sexual harassment and assault.
