Civil Rights Lawyer Alexandra Brodsky On NY Governor Cuomo's Resignation And New Book "Sexual Justice"

Book cover for "Sexual Justice" By Alexandra Brodsky

Alexandra Brodsky is a civil rights lawyer who has written about sexual assault for many prominent publications. Last week, the New York Times published her opinion piece: I’m a Civil Rights Lawyer. Cuomo Got His Due.

Her forthcoming book is: “Sexual Justice: Supporting Victims, Ensuring Due Process, and Resisting the Conservative Backlash.” The book comes out August 24th. The victims of Governor Cuomo harassment are added to a remarkable number of sexual harassment victims who have come forward with their stories, demanding consequences for their assailants and broad societal change.

Each prominent allegation, however, has also set off a wave of questions—some posed in good faith, some distinctly not—about the rights of the accused. The national conversation has grown polarized, inflamed by a public narrative that wrongly presents feminism and fair process as warring interests.
