More than 400 high-profile executives and employees from across the professional spectrum have been brought down by the #MeToo movement in the last 18 months, Bloomberg reports.
The big picture: While #MeToo isn't dominating headlines the way it was last year, the movement has still been at work behind the scenes. Davia Temin, whose firm Temin & Co. conducted the study cited by Bloomberg, said that while the accusation rate "has been slowing ... the percentage of people being fired has increased."
By the numbers, per Bloomberg:
- 410 of the 417 high-profile figures are men. (The study defines "high-profile" as those "with at least seven separate, national mentions," including celebrities like Bill Cosby, or more common, CEOs and business leaders.)
- 193 of them have been fired or left their jobs.
- 122 have been suspended, put on leave, or are being investigated.
- Around 69 haven't faced repercussions.
- 8 were in consensual relationships.
"The eagle eyes are out for this. Women understand a little better their collective power, and they're using it."— Temin, to Bloomberg
What's next: The #MeToo movement is far from over.
