As for the pushback against sexual harassment, it is actually much older than the famous actresses who recently came forward. Women have been able to sue for sexual harassment since the 1980s, and the changes in rape law that have taken place since the 1970s have been very beneficial to women’s autonomy. There is still a lot of work to do, but courageous women, most of them ordinary working women, not celebrities, have taken things forward. I believe studying humanities is a key feature of responsible citizenship in a complex world. In my religion, Reform Judaism, the chief goal is to pursue justice in this world and to strive to transcend one’s selfishness and narrowness within this life.
