Margaret Atwood: We need new etiquette rulebooks
    2018-February-7  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

There should be a new etiquette* guidebook in the light of recent sexual harassment scandal, Canadian author Margaret Atwood has said.

Atwood — who faced a Twitter storm after writing a column on the Me Too movement — suggested men needed advice on behavior.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s “The World At One,” she said “personal behavior” needed to be tackled.

“The Handmaid’s Tale” author said “ordinary people” needed the advice.

She faced a backlash* after questioning the impact of Me Too, which was sparked by the accusations* made against Harvey Weinstein and others in Hollywood.

In her first broadcast interview since then, she repeated her view that such a movement is a “symptom of something being wrong,” but “it’s not an end goal.”

“There are some things we’re going to need to fix, I would say in three areas,” said the Canadian writer. “One of them being courts of law. One of them being large institutions and corporations. And one of them being personal behavior.

“There used to be a lot of etiquette books on how to behave. Those seem to have gone out of the window.

“We used to be bombarded with them in the 50s. So where is the ‘Mr. Manners?’ There should be a ‘Mr. Manners’ column — like ‘what do you do when...’

“I think it can help men to understand what may possibly be expected of them in the behavior department.”
