Letter to the editor, May 17

Cartoon by Jim Meadows

Sex harassment reforms appreciated

To the editor,

I applaud Mayor Bill de Blasio and the New York City Council for their leadership to enact a comprehensive and visionary package of reforms to address sexual harassment in our city.

Collectively, this package of legislation sends a strong message that the workplace must be filled with respect and that violating basic principles of decency will no longer be tolerated. Women’s City Club hopes that this bold action will prompt even further changes in the private sector – and, throughout society.

  1. Am I missing something here? Is this not the same mayor that just a few weeks ago talked about the DOE employees (teachers) filing false sexual harassment complaints – basically calling potential victims liars. And here we have the president and CEO of a woman’s group praising him. Backwards world we live in.

  2. Jim Meadows cartoons are frequently racist and misogynistic. Given that fact, why does this paper publish them? Does he represent the T&V?
