I'm inspired that so many women have come out this year saying "me, too" to sexual harassment in the workplace.
As sad as it all is to hear, I think the Me, Too movement has been a massive step in the right direction.

And I think it's wonderful that Time Magazine put some of these bold truth-tellers on the front cover.
