Metoo Movement

#MeToo Movement

Definition

A movement that actively and publicly opposes sexual harassment and sexual assault. The #MeToo movement became an international phenomenon in October 2017 with the revelation by numerous women, including several high-profile actresses, that movie producer Harvey Weinstein had sexually assaulted them. The #MeToo movement has also underscored the extent to which sexual harassment is a widespread problem in the workplace. For this reason, underwriters of employment practices liability insurance (EPLI) policies (and the risk managers of their insureds) are concerned that the movement could vastly increase their exposure to claims.
