Is Uber guilty of silencing rape and sexual harassment victims?

The ride-sharing application Uber has been accused of trying to silence women who were victimized by sexual harassment and sexual assault by Uber drivers. According to a class-action lawsuit, the company has tried to strongarm women into submitting to confidential arbitration proceedings in order to resolve their legal issues rather than handling them public court. The move is considered to be a strategy to assist Uber in avoiding further public scrutiny relating to sexual harassment of its customers and employees.

Women are also being accused of sexual harassment

It seems that every other day we hear about a new sexual misconduct or sexual harassment story involving a man. It seems like the media only wants to discuss the rude comments, unwanted physical touching and other misdeeds by men in this regard. However, when men and women alike listen to these news events, they tend to think back to various moments when they were mistreated in this fashion. In many cases, men can recall moments when female colleagues berated them, directed sexual comments at them or touched them physically.
