So many stories pour in...this is hard to see

Within hours of the Sky News report, my website started receiving stories - and contacts. So many women saying 'MeToo' - not just stories of the '70s and 80s, but a real concentration around the mid-90s and quite a few still serving. Army, RAF, civil servants - all saying similar things - hard to speak out without career damage or being dis-believed, persuaded not to speak up (you wouldn't want to damage his career would you??) and punished if you do.

Some men as well - apologising for things done or supportive of what I am raising as an issue. And just one or two saying 'not in my name' - we haven't had a problem. With a few saying don't forget the toxic behaviours of some women in power - sometimes the men are the good ones. I agree.
