Landmark #MeToo Bill Heads to Biden’s Desk Amid Fight to Protect Sexual Assault Survivors

On Thursday, President Joe Biden signed the Ending Forced Arbitration of Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment Act into law, which bans forced arbitration in workplace sexual assault and harassment cases and allows survivors to file lawsuits against perpetrators. It previously passed the Senate by unanimous consent in an unprecedented show of bipartisanship.

After decades of being silenced, survivors of sexual harassment and assault will finally have their day in court.
