#MeToo & Sexual Harassment
The corporate world shook at its core in 2017; that’s when the #MeToo movement erupted into a national force. As victims came out in droves to share their experiences, many CEOs and prominent business figures fell from grace, and companies scrambled to initiate change.

Reddock-Wright most recently served as a legal commentator across various media outlets, including Time Magazine, to discuss the nationwide college admissions scandals and related topics.
Despite schools and institutions working tirelessly to eliminate bullying and hazing, there are still many cases today, and some of those have resulted in the loss of life.
Reddock-Wright began defending victims in the late 2000s. One such case was against San Jose State University and a sorority hazing ritual that left a victim with multiple injuries. There was also a culture of fear – some going even as far as repeating the mantra “snitches get stitches.”
Reddock-Wright fought on behalf of the victim, saying that the university did not provide enough security and safety for that student, and did not uphold its own policies against hazing.
This is a fight Reddock-Wright believes needs to be continued today across all college campuses where hazing cases have arisen in the Greek life, on athletics teams, and in cheerleading squads.
The nation’s university system is not alone. Several institutions have faced hazing allegations, where the abuse of new members is very much a part of the “behind-the-scenes” culture. One area where this practice still plagues is within some of the fire departments.
