Social Media and Campaigns
Social media and movement campaigns can influence action to be taken against alleged perpetrators of sexual harassment and assault. R. Kelly is a current example.
a. #MuteRKelly Movement - This movement seeks to hold R. Kelly accountable for his alleged sexual misconduct against black girls and women, urging artists, radio stations, record companies, streaming platforms, and concert venues to cut ties with the alleged predator.
b. Time’s Up Campaign - The Women of Color committee within Time’s Up has demanded appropriate investigations and inquiries into the allegations of R. Kelly’s alleged abuse made by women and their families for more than two decades, including allegations of sexual coercion, leading a sex cult, and physical abuse.
