We've seen a wave of victims come forward in recent months to raise awareness of sexual assault across industries. The "It's On Us" movement says everyone should be engaged in trying to end sexual harassment. Kyle Lierman, Founder of "It's On Us," joins Cheddar's Kristen Scholer and Cosmopolitan Editor in Chief Michele Promaulayko for a special episode of Closing Bell.
Lierman says this campaign is aimed at changing the way people fundamentally think about sexual harassment. "There are so many ways for men to get involved," said Lierman. "It's on men and all of us to be supportive of survivors." Lierman also says it's imperative to intervene if you see an inappropriate behavior take place.
According to a recent report by Cosmopolitan and Survey Monkey, more than a third (36%) of employed men are becoming more aware of their own behaviors towards women compared to 6 month ago. The survey also found that 19 percent of men are less comfortable now interacting with women in the workplace.
