Weinstein and how to treat sex offenders

Listen 49:00

Guests: Margaret Sullivan, Vicki Magley, Brandi Stewart

The Harvey Weinstein scandal is continuing to unfold, and is opening up a variety of conversations about sexual abuse, power, enablers, and bystanders. Washington Post media columnist MARGARET SULLIVAN joins us to discuss how Hollywood and the press were complicit in Weinstein’s predatory behavior, and how powerful men use their status to shield themselves from being held accountable for their actions. Then, we’ll talk about sexual harassment in the workplace with VICKI MAGLEY, professor of psychological sciences at the University of Connecticut, and with BRANDI STEWART, psychologist and Director of Clinical Services at the Joseph J. Peters Institute, about how men become sex offenders and the best ways to treat their disorder.
