The debate over what it means to “believe women” – the rallying cry of the #MeToo movement – has escalated in recent weeks over a sexual assault allegation lodged against Joe Biden. The accusation by a former staff assistant, Tara Reade, raises uncomfortable questions for Democratic voters who previously said women’s complaints should be listened to and treated as credible. It also means that both presidential candidates have been accused of – and denied – sexual assault.
