Mayim Bialik has apologized for implying women are sometimes asking to be sexually harassed. Hannah Cranston, Brett Erlich, Amberia Allen, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. Join TYT:
“Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) said Wednesday that women bear as much responsibility as men for preventing sexual assault and harassment.
“I grew up in a time when it was as much the woman’s responsibility as it was a man’s — how you were dressed, what your behavior was,” Johnson told local media. “I’m from the old school that you can have behaviors that appear to be inviting. It can be interpreted as such. That’s the responsibility, I think, of the female. I think that males have a responsibility to be professional themselves.”
Her message, she insisted, was meant to empower women to prevent assault and harassment.
Johnson also told NBC DFW she was disappointed more women did not report movie producer Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual harassment, assault, abuse, and rape earlier.”
