Before media firestorms, decades of assaults

One common trait shared by recent high-profile sexual assault scandals is that it took a major media event for many of the women to come forward with their stories. For some, the alleged assault happened decades ago.

Worth noting: Cosby, Ailes, O'Reilly, and Weinstein were all condemned — and to an extent, punished — once the allegations against them were brought to light. One month after Trump's Access Hollywood tape leaked and more than 20 women came forward with allegations of sexual assault, he was elected president.

The Uber drama's cast of characters

Uber on Tuesday disclosed the findings of a months-long investigation into its myriad workplace issues and announced CEO Travis Kalanick would take a leave of absence.

The investigation, led by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, was sparked by an ex-employee's published account of sexual harassment and discrimination she experienced during her year working at Uber.
