New York Times opinion writer and editor Bari Weiss recently published a groundbreaking article about the Australian actor Yael Stone, in which the Orange is the New Black star detailed sexual harassment allegations against Geoffrey Rush. The story pulled back the curtain on the nuances and consequences of telling #MeToo stories. Bari Weiss was previously an op-ed and book review editor at The Wall Street Journal, and also worked at Tablet, the online magazine of Jewish politics and culture.
