Defense Secretary Michael Fallon Resigns over Sexual Harassment Claims

HeadlineNov 02, 2017
 h06 fallon resigns

Men across the world are continuing to resign, be fired or face intense criticism and backlash over a slew of allegations of sexual harassment and assault that have surfaced in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. The wave of accusations has rocked not only Hollywood, but also the media industry, universities, academia, restaurants and the highest reaches of government. In Britain, Defense Secretary Michael Fallon resigned Wednesday amid multiple allegations of inappropriate past sexual conduct. This is Fallon.

Michael Fallon: “What might have been acceptable 15, 10 years ago is clearly not acceptable now. Parliament now has to look at itself, and the prime minister has made very clear that the conduct needs to be improved, and we need to protect the staff of Westminster against any particular allegations of harassment.”
