American society has taken a hard, stern stance on sexual assault in recent years. From Bill Cosby to Harvey Weinstein to Matt Lauer, influential and famous men throughout the country are being accused of sexual assault or harassment on a daily basis. As a result, movements like the Me Too movement and the Women’s March have risen and gained great popularity among society. Social media is often flooded with new sexual assault allegations and posts supporting victims and raising awareness about the issue. Despite all of this, convictions regarding sex crimes in the United States are embarrassingly low, and women and men who raise their voice as victims are often labeled as liars and never see their day in court.
