This article discusses the impact of ostracism on sexual harassment, both before and after the #MeToo movement.
Why is it important?

Prior research has indicated that those who disclose workplace sexual harassment are at risk of both intentional and unintentional ostracism. Many choose not to disclose because of the fear of ostracism. However, the #MeToo movement has served as a way to help individuals overcome ostracism by connections to an online community with similar experiences.
