Pick an issue, any issue these days. Black Lives Matter. Covid. And just think, not too long ago Me Too was a "thing". Well, it is still a thing along with any and all concerns for every American.
Catch and Kill by Ronan Farrow is excellent, groundbreaking research that thoroughly uncovered the Harvey Weinstein sexual predator scandal. Protected by wealth, fear, and a conspiracy of silence - shadowy operatives mounted a secret campaign of intimidation, threats, and more to keep this story silent. (cover blurb)
There was a trail of clues, revealed corruptions and cover-ups from Hollywood to Washington and beyond.
Harvey Weinstein, Donald Trump (! - seriously scum), Matt Lauer - so many men, so many women with stories - truly amazing, sad, awe-inspiring in regards to the women who came forward. This book reflects many years of abuse that is beyond ridiculous and frankly, unacceptable. Me Too has a lot of work to do, but this is a grand start.
cover blurb - Both a spy thriller and a meticulous work of investigative journalism, Catch and Kill breaks devastating new stories about the rampant abuse of power and sheds far-reaching light on investigations that shook our culture.
Really good read. And I truly hope for the sake of Ray and my grandkids - all girls - Abby, Makyla, Skylar, and Dakota - that they do NOT ever have to go through anything like this. They should be treated with dignity in the workplace, treated fair and square. Life SHOULD be an equal playing field . And SHAME on those who do not honor such.
