Preventing & Addressing Sexual Harassment Post-Cuomo
Wendy Stryker speaks on the panel, “Preventing & Addressing Sexual Harassment Post-Cuomo,” hosted by the New York City Bar Association. The program analyzes the lessons to be learned from the Attorney General’s investigation into allegations of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s sexual harassment. Using the investigation as a focal point, with an eye towards prevention, this will illuminate the significance of several key takeaways, including analyzing (i) the power of the first-person narrative in articulating a claim of sexual harassment; (ii) how power imbalances impact a victim’s willingness to come forward; (iii) the role of bystanders, witnesses and/or aiders and abettors and what impacts their willingness to come forward; (iv) the protections or lack thereof for victims and witnesses; and (v) the importance of making credibility determinations in sexual harassment cases.
