David Schwimmer’s sexual harassment films are good. But this is women’s work

It’s a good thing that Schwimmer’s done to assist the broadcast of Avin’s message. But it’s so hard as a feminist to shake a conviction based on so much accumulated evidence that these films have received the positive reception they have because their identification with Schwimmer lends masculine validity to their analysis. I’m reminded of the infamous headline in the Onion, “Man Finally Put in Charge of Struggling Feminist Movement”, that summarises this cruel phenomenon.
