Abstract

The #MeToo-movement publically confronts alleged perpetrators of sexual misconduct with their transgressions. In return, the accused often struggle with the question of how to reply. What can research about trust and forgiveness teach us about the do’s and dont's of their responses?

Keywords: #MeToo, Trust, Forgiveness, Apology, Denial
