Miami is more than just beaches and dance clubs. It’s home to some of most incredible graffiti art I’ve ever seen. This mural is a salute to the women who are taking a stand to speak up against men who abuse their power in various industries. This problem exists everywhere, in our cultures and religions, and it is not okay. Not all men are the same, but those who have normalized their behavior need a wake up call and they’re finally getting one. Great job, @tristaneaton

Lindsay Meyer, an entrepreneur in San Francisco, said Mr. Caldbeck put $25,000 of his own money into her fitness start-up in 2015. That gave Mr. Caldbeck reason to constantly text her; in those messages, reviewed by The Times, he asked if she was attracted to him and why she would rather be with her boyfriend than him. At times, he groped and kissed her, she said. “I felt like I had to tolerate it because this is the cost of being a nonwhite female founder,” said Ms. Meyer, who is Asian-American.
But even after she reached out to a mentor, who alerted one of Binary’s investors, Legacy Venture, to Mr. Caldbeck’s actions, little changed. Legacy went on to invest in Binary’s new fund. Binary and Mr. Caldbeck declined to comment. “We failed to follow up on information about Mr. Caldbeck’s personal behavior,” Legacy said in a statement. “We regret this oversight and are determined to do better.”
