Acknowledgement is not enough, nor is punishing one powerful abuser at a time.Despite all of the words of support, concrete action on this front has been severely lacking.The White House's handling of the Porter situation reflects the Trump administration's willingness to side with anyone who serves its political agenda – such as Roy Moore, the failed Senate candidate from Alabama, even after credible allegations that Moore had made sexual advances against several women when they were minors.An undercover investigation by the Financial Times recently revealed that the "Presidents Club" was hosting annual men-only charity fundraisers, secretive gatherings where British business, government and entertainment figures would raise money for worthy causes.Taking effective action to stop such activities is in everyone's interest, not just that of potential victims.Abuses of power and disregard for duty of care are becoming increasingly difficult to cover up, and thus increasingly likely to have negative consequences.Like Britain's suffragettes, those calling for action will be satisfied only when their reasonable demands are met with concrete action.
