It’s encouraging to see how people in power are coming down in flames for sexual harassment. Wouldn’t it be great if we could apply sexual harassment to racist harassment and spark a similar movement? Silence and inaction are the reasons why sexual harassment happens with near-impunity.

The Harvey Weinsteins and Donald Trumps of the sexual harassment are the Marine Le Pens, Geert Wilders and Viktor Orbans of racism. In Finland, they come with the names of Timo Soini, Jussi Halla-aho, and Laura Huhtasaari.
