Some men are now stating that they are somewhat afraid or hesitant to administer CPR on a woman in need of medical attention because they do not want to be accused of sexual assault. This is a side effect of the #MeToo movement.
An article on Yahoo stated that researcher had surveyed people regarding CPR and their attitude when it comes to giving women CPR. The researchers, from the University of Colorado, had reported that many of the interviewees stated they feared giving a woman CPR because they would not want to be accused of touching them inappropriately or accused of sexual assault.
