When will the #metoo shoe drop on public accounting partners?

I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard rumors or stories about partners taking advantage of their position and ‘pedestal’ to take advantage of younger women working in their offices. Whether it is after a firm happy hour, post busy season party, holiday party, etc. there always seems to be rumors floating around about what happens during the after party. Even if it is just flirting or something that does not rise to the level of ‘harassment’, why do we allow these partners to take advantage of their positions and the impressionable young women that put them on a pedestal? When will the shoe drop?
