Vice Media has made four settlements involving sexual harassment and defamation by its male employees — including one against the company's president, according to a New York Times' investigation. More than 24 former and current female employees claimed to have experienced or witnessed sexual harassment involving unwanted kissing, groping and retaliation for refusing sexual advances at the media company.

Why it matters: While most of the accusations of sexual misconduct have been brought upon older, white men, these allegations bring to light a continual degradation of women by a younger generation of 20- to 40-year-olds.
