The Weinstein Effect
read carefully and follow the instruction.
Over the last few months, an unprecedented number of powerful men have been brought down by accusations of sexual misconduct — among them Harvey Weinstein, Roger
Ailes, Bill O’Reilly, Louis CK, Roy S. Moore, and many, many others.
Something different is happening in America regarding this issue; that is clear. Never have so many powerful people been brought down so quickly.
The question is: will this last? Is this a permanent change in the culture? Will men have to behave differently to women from now on? Why or why not.
We obviously can’t know that until some time has passed and we can see a change — or not. So the question is “what do your sources think?” And what do you think?
Assignment is to use TWO American sources, and TWO international sources, and relate what they think is happening. And then sum up with your own opinion. Do think this
is a real and permanent change — or will things go back to the way they were before once this “blows over?”
Answers should be submitted to Turnitin in the form of a 2 to 3 page essay, 500-750 words, with a clear bibliography at the end of your sources.
