A slew of recent news involving high-profile allegations of sexual abuse and exploitation of girls and women have been heralded as “a crucial moment for the #MeToo movement.” This includes the criminal conviction of singer R. Kelly, congressional hearings on the FBI’s failure to investigate reports of Larry Nassar’s sexual abuse of scores of female athletes on the U.S. women’s national gymnastics team, as well as a federal judge’s refusal to allow Prince Andrew, duke of York, to evade civil sex abuse claims arising from his time with sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
