Fight Against Himpathy

by Alexa Iovine

Himpathy is a term used to describe the sympathy often given to men in positions of power when facing sexual assult charges. The phrase can be seen in cases such as those of Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K, Kevin Spacey, and Charlie Rose. FEM magazine further breaks down himpathy, and tells how its usage is impacting and complicating the #MeToo movement.
