She said, “The laughter dies out when you bring up the subject of #MeToo revelations that are shaking up our world on a daily basis. It’s good that women are finally talking and publicly pulling up some people. It’s not going to take away the pain and shame they faced in the past. But by speaking up, they can try and ensure that this doesn’t happen to others in the future. Younger people, and I’m not being gender specific here, will know where to draw the line. They will know when to stand up and say, ‘So far but no further.”
