People who have been most quoted about Sexual harassment are: Erik Wemple, Lisa Bloom and Mark Zuckerberg. For instance, the most recent quote from Erik Wemple is: “Maybe Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is desperate these days for comic relief, considering that his show is weathering a significant pullout of advertisers following revelations that he and his employer had reached settlements with five former female employees claiming sexual harassment or mistreatment. Whatever the explanation, please play the video above to hear the King of Cable News laughing as he finishes watching that terrible video of a man being manhandled and dragged off of a Chicago-to-Louisville United Express flight. “I shouldn’t be laughing, but it’s just so bizarre,” says O’Reilly.”.

Erik Wemple

Ever since the New York Times reported a series of sexual harassment settlements surrounding his workplace behavior, Bill O’Reilly has attempted to ride out the crisis through minimal acknowledgement. Sure, he issued a statement implausibly blaming the settlements — five of them, for sexual harassment and simple abuse — on his status as a big, fat target for complaints. On his program on Monday and Tuesday nights, however, the King of Cable News refrained from addressing the matter, an omission suggesting that O’Reilly has no good defense.feedback

Aaron Sanandres

As a company in which more than two-thirds of our employees are women, we take sexual harassment claims very seriously. . . . In light of the disturbing allegations, we instructed our media buyer this morning to reallocate our ad dollars to other shows effective immediately.feedback

Spencer Crum

She came … stumbling up to us and told us she'd been [the] victim of sexual assault by this man.feedback

Erik Wemple

As Fox News last year was plowing through the sexual harassment scandal involving now-former network chief Roger Ailes, King of Cable News Bill O’Reilly couldn’t have been more dismissive of the victims. “In this country, every famous, powerful or wealthy person is a target. You’re a target, ” O’Reilly said in a July appearance on “Late Night” with Seth Meyers. “I’m a target. Anytime somebody could come out and sue us, attack us, go to the press or anything like that. … I stand behind Roger 100 percent.”.feedback

Kate Walsh

Like with this show, unfortunately, we wait for terrible things to happen to get framework and education on how to prevent this stuff from happening. It's up to us to educate ourselves, police ourselves and to put limitations on ourselves. For me, that's sort of the lesson these days, not only educating, but having conversations about what it's like to be LGBTQ these days or talking about sexuality very honestly to prevent sexual assault.feedback

Fay Weldon

By going out to work they halved the male wage, so a male wage no longer supported a family. So women had to go out to work to support the family. So for two in three women it really was a problem. The advent of the nursery has been awful. Because it's so convenient, because you don't have the responsibility of bringing up your own child. You put its care, its information, its understanding into the hands of someone else. In my youth, what is now seen as sexual harassment was seen as welcome attention.feedback

Gabe Rivera

Say there's a story about sexual harassment in a company. To what extent do we cover this? If we cover every tiny iteration of the scandal, do people think we are championing this as an issue too much? Is Techmeme turning into an advocacy platform for this issue?feedback

Jeff Jones - Uber

It is now clear … that the beliefs and approach to leadership that have guided my career are inconsistent with what I saw and experienced at Uber. There are thousands of amazing people at the company and I truly wish everyone well. Last month, former Uber employee Susan Fowler Rigetti published a blog post describing systemic sexism and sexual harassment in the workplace. The viral post prompted Uber to launch an independent investigation, led by former U.S. Attorney Gen. Eric Holder, reports NPR's Emma Bowman.feedback

Mark Dinan

There was a lot of crazy behaviour in the late 1990s, including sexual harassment. It's a result of there not being discipline.feedback

Lisa Bloom

Ms. Barton does not consent to any disclosure of any such images. She believes that she was recorded without her consent by someone she was seeing at the time. There's a name for this disgusting conduct: Revenge pornography. Revenge pornography is a form of sexual assault, and it is also a crime and a civil wrong in California. And we still not stand for it. I have a message for anyone who attempts to traffic in these photos or videos of Ms. Barton; we will find you, and we will come after you. We will fully prosecute you under every available criminal and civil law.feedback

Lisa Bloom

There's a name for this disgusting conduct: revenge pornography. Revenge pornography is a form of sexual assault, and it is also a crime and a civil wrong in California. And we will not stand for it. I've been doing women's right cases for 30 years, and what I see over and over again is women who are very scared, but when they stand up on their own two feet and they say, No, I'm not going to stand for this, I'm going to fight back,' it's very empowering. I think this is a very healthy step that Mischa step is taking.feedback

Shaunna Thomas

What happened in that video was sexual assault, period, full stop. The evidence for it is, he pulled down her shirt, exposed her breasts, and she slapped him away. She clearly didn't want him to be doing it, she didn't give him permission to do that. Ezekiel Elliott needs to be suspended. … Roger Goodell is in a position – yet again – to demonstrate that they do take seriously.feedback

Jenny Andrus

It's been a long journey, but I'm ready to finally talk about it and I'm so pleased to work with NO MORE to make sure domestic violence and sexual assault are topics being talked about. Their goal in raising awareness is motivating for me.feedback

Todd Stitzer - Sterling Jewelers

The portrait of Signet painted in recent media reports is irreconcilable to me with a company that I have served as director and chairman for more than five years. We have taken seriously the allegations of sexual harassment prepared in connection with the pending arbitration matter, many of which go back decades. This is the portrayal of Signet which our board and management team and our valued team members recognize at their own. Not the purported parallel universe represented by others.feedback

Tiffany Lloyd

H.B. 2 not only negatively impacted LGBTQ+ people, It also took away labor protections, recourse for sexual harassment protections and negatively impacted the disabled.feedback

Nadiah Mohajir

There's an extreme level of shame and stigma with respect to sexual assault in the Muslim community. The need for the community to uphold positive and praiseworthy qualities like modest and privacy–they conflate that with feelings of shame.feedback

Ann Olivarius

Sexual harassment of students by staff members has reached epidemic levels in British universities. Young women are often terrified about the consequences if they make a complaint about a staff member. So often when they do the university's chief concern is to downplay any wrongdoing and protect its own reputation by keeping the whole thing quiet. The penalty for violating the no-contact rule should be swift termination with a public statement and a mandated report to a central UK registry.feedback

Rachel Krys

There is no obligation on universities to record or report these issues, which means there will be many cases which just fall below the radar of this sort of inquiry. We know that institutions which take tackling sexual harassment and violence seriously, and have policies and systems in place to encourage reporting and train staff to deal with complaints as they arise, report higher numbers. It's the universities which aren't dealing with this openly which perversely appear to have fewer problems.feedback

Anna Bull

There is evidence to suggest that the actual figures in the UK will be staggering. The Association of American Universities undertook a detailed survey of sexual assault and sexual misconduct in 2015 (student-student and staff-student). Surveys were completed on 27 campuses, with 150,072 students responding. The survey found reporting rates for sexual harassment – staff and student – [were] 7.7%, and only 28% of even the most serious incidents are reported to an organisation or agency.feedback

Stephen Marshall

There is no place for sexual harassment or gender-based violence at UAL. We are already working hard to improve how we handle and prevent incidents of harassment.feedback

John Dilworth - Crown Prosecution Service

I would like to praise the bravery of the victims in this case. It is thanks largely to their evidence that the court has today found Colin Gregg guilty of nine charges of non-recent sexual assault, charges for which he had evaded justice for a considerable number of years.feedback

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Lt. Gen. McMaster has served alongside women, and benefited from their bravery and dedication, his entire career. As a commander he has been a leader in sexual assault prevention in each of his commands. To suggest otherwise is to unfairly impugn the character and integrity of a true American hero.feedback

Don Christensen

He shouldn't be thinking, Well, I don't want to hurt their careers. If you have two guys under investigation for sexual assault, but your first concern is that their career might be hurt, that says to me that you're not really getting the big picture.feedback

Satish Kolluri

The conversation around sexual assault changed after the New Delhi incident. Now, more people are talking about their experiences in more ways. In one sense, it has done good. Police are forced to take action.feedback

Patrick Leahy

If we are to continue being a great nation, then survivors of sexual assault and hate crimes and religious bigotry all deserve to know that their civil and human rights will be protected by the attorney general of the United States. Given the divisive rhetoric of the Republican nominee for president last year, many are worried.feedback

Jeff Sessions

I don't characterize that as sexual assault. I think that's a stretch. I don't know what he meant. I would never intentionally suggest otherwise.feedback

Snehal Velkar

In our gender awareness work, one of the issues that's been raised repeatedly by young women are being harassed by men singing inappropriate Bollywood songs. Bollywood songs are great to sing and dance to, but when you pay attention, you realize that many of them objectify and demean women. This leads to normalizing sexual harassment and violence against women.feedback

Kevin Steele

This is a lifetime of sexual assault on young women. We ask the court to look at the remarkable similarities [between the different accusations]. That is an essential element to all of this. You have a situation in each case where it's a young woman. He is significantly older. He is married at the time. All but one of the women met the defendant through her employment. He acted as a mentor.feedback

Jason Chaffetz

Numerous Department of Agriculture employees who were subject to sexual assault, harassment and discrimination also came forward to the committee. The number of examples and despicable acts were quite horrifying. Some of these women had even been raped by coworkers, but refused to testify due to the threat of retaliation and having their careers destroyed.feedback

Catherine Cochran

USDA, including the U.S. Forest Service, has a zero tolerance policy for sexual harassment in the workforce. We take all complaints seriously and take assertive measures ... up to terminating employees when wrongdoing is confirmed.feedback

John Clune

We commend Baylor for its work with Pepper Hamilton in its effort to improve its handling of sexual assault reports.feedback

Brian McKeen

This doctor used this young girl's innocence and naiveté against her. She trusted her doctor's authority when he insisted his treatments were standard procedure, but they were no more than sexual assault and abuse of a child.feedback

Sharon Stone

It is an outrageous situation – her situation and this situation and this culture – that someone, anyone, can say that they are a sexual assault perpetrator and continue on with their life as though it has not happened.feedback

Maggie Haberman

The last day of the workweek has often proved meddlesome for both Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton. Key moments in the F.B.I.'s email investigation landed on Fridays; and a 2005 audio recording of Mr. Trump bragging about sexual assault was also revealed on a Friday. The week could end quietly, or it could close with yet another in a series of wave-making afternoons.feedback

Arlan Hamilton

By lending his image, his voice, his influence and substantial capital to Trump, Thiel isn't simply exercising his legal right to vote: He is fueling and enabling racism, sexism, sexual assault, violence and tyranny.feedback

Moira Smith - Enstar Group

As the mother of a young daughter and son, I am coming forward to show that it is important to stand up for yourself and tell the truth. When powerful men commit sexual assault, they count on their victims keeping it a secret.feedback

Scott Berkowitz - Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network

We often see cases of when a prominent teacher, doctor or other community figure is accused of sexual assault, news of that will often prompt others to come forward. They feel they are now more likely to be believed.feedback

Charlie Dougherty - Lincoln

He recently got out of my jail. He was accused of child sexual assault. We were doing an investigation, we arrested him. That is supposedly what set him off but we don't know that for sure yet.feedback

Marco Arment

We have so many diversity and hostility problems (that the industry isfinally working to fix) that Y Combinator should be leading the way toward inclusive, progressive solutions. Instead, they're defending the large-scale support of racism, bigotry and sexual assault by an influential partner and adviser to their start-ups as its own form of 'diversity.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

We can't create a culture that says it cares about diversity and then excludes almost half of the country because they back a political candidate. Do not involve racism, sexism, xenophobia or accepting sexual assault.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

I want to quickly address the questions and concerns about Peter Thiel as a board member and Trump supporter. We can't create a culture that says it cares about diversity and then excludes almost half of the country because they back a political candidate. There are many reasons a person might support Trump that do not involve racism, sexism, xenophobia or accepting sexual assault. ... Our community will be stronger for all our differences.feedback

Rebecca O'Connor - Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network

People are starting to recognize that even if they didn't fit whatever mythological circumstance people think needs to happen in order for it to be rape or sexual assault, that there is in fact that gray area where it's still nonconsensual. Even if you wore a skirt or you didn't outwardly force someone off you, this may legally fall into the realm of sexual assault.feedback

Kristin Anderson - Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

It's a sexual assault issue, and it's something that I've kept quiet on my own. And I've always kept quiet. And why should I keep quiet? Actually, all of the women should speak up, and if you're touched inappropriately, tell somebody and speak up about it. Actually go to the authorities and press some charges. It's not okay.feedback

Jason Miller

This entire article is fiction, and for the New York Times to launch a completely false, coordinated character assassination against Mr. Trump on a topic like this is dangerous. To reach back decades in an attempt to smear Mr. Trump trivializes sexual assault, and it sets a new low for where the media is willing to go in its efforts to determine this election.feedback

Tim Kaine

You can't grab people's genitals. You know, that's sexual assault, I mean it's clear.feedback

Viola Davis

You must. And then let your heart do the rest. Myself, my mother, my sisters, my friend Rebecca, my friend from childhood, we all have one thing in common: We are all survivors of sexual assault in some way, shape or form.feedback

Leo Dobbs

This is a very sad milestone. Most of those fleeing South Sudan are women and children. They include survivors of violent attacks, sexual assault, children that have been separated from their parents or travelled alone, the disabled, the elderly and people in need of urgent medical care.feedback

Delaney Robinson

I reported it. I allowed the rape kit to be taken. I gave a statement. I cooperated with law enforcement and the Title IX office [which handles complaints of discrimination, including gender and sexual assault]. But six months later, the university has done nothing.feedback

Michelle Dauber

We need judges who understand sexual assault and violence against women.feedback

Alice Hood

The numbers are shocking and it should be a wake up-call. Sexual harassment is still a really big problem for women in the workplace. It's certainly not gone away.feedback

Christophe Dagues

For us, the line is very clear between what is seduction and what is sexual harassment. And there can't be any confusion for the harasser between seduction and sexual harassment. You can invite an employee to have a coffee after work. Or tell her you find her pretty and that you're attracted to her. But the moment where she shows you she is not interested, stop.feedback

Valerie Zabriskie - Euronews

How do you define sexual harassment at work? And where do you draw the line between seduction and harassment? Is it a hand on the knee or on the leg? Or a text message saying you look nice in that dress you're wearing? And why is it so hard to prove?feedback

Maude Beckers

Here we have direct proof of sexual harassment. It generally takes place behind closed doors so we rarely have direct proof. Today our goal is to have it recognised, that it's not unfair if a victim records her harasser, because this harassment is a crime.feedback

Marilyn Baldeck

Victims are often accused themselves when they go before a tribunal. This woman here is accused of being a manipulator, wanting to take her boss' job. She's also accused of not showing any emotion, so therefore she's not credible – since a victim of sexual harassment is supposed to cry non-stop.feedback

Beth Fortune - Vanderbilt

It is our sincere hope that today's verdict strongly sends the message to victims and to perpetrators that sexual assault will not be tolerated in our communities.feedback

John Silvanus Wilson Jr.

Sexual assault is a heinous form of violence and it is a stark contradiction to Morehouse College at its best. The information anonymously shared on Twitter was our very first indication of this incident. Now that we are aware of these allegations, we are determined to pursue the investigation to the fullest extent possible.feedback

Tippi Hedren

It was the early 1960s. Sexual harassment and stalking were terms that didn't exist back then.feedback
