Disclosure (1994)
Catherine Alvarez: [to Tom] Sexual harassment is not about sex. It is about power. She has it; you don't.

Catherine Alvarez: If you sue, you'll never get another job in the computer business; if you don't sue they'll bury you in Austin. If you sue it's news; if you don't it's gossip. If you sue nobody will believe you; if you don't, your wife won't. They will make your life into a living hell for the next three years until this case goes to trial. And for that privilege, it's going to cost you a minimum of a hundred thousand dollars. Do you not think it's a game Mr. Sanders? It's a game to them. How do you feel about losing?

Catherine Alvarez: No means no. Isn't that what we tell women? Do men deserve less?
Meredith Johnson: Well, when he really wanted to stop, he didn't seem to have any problems doing it, did he?
Catherine Alvarez: And that's when you got angry.
Meredith Johnson: Of course I got angry. So would anyone.
Catherine Alvarez: Don't we tell women that they can stop at any point?
Meredith Johnson: Haven't you ever said no and meant yes, Mrs. Alvarez?
Catherine Alvarez: Up until the moment of actual penetration...
Meredith Johnson: [interrupting] The point is he was willing. That tape doesn't change anything.
Catherine Alvarez: The point is you controlled the meeting. You set the time. You ordered the wine. You locked the door. You demanded service and then got angry when he didn't provide it. So you decided to get even, to get rid of him with this trumped up charge. Ms. Johnson, the only thing you have proven is that a woman in power can be every bit as abusive as a man!
Meredith Johnson: You wanna put me on trial here? Let's at least be honest about what it's for! I am a sexually aggressive woman. I like it. Tom knew it, and you can't handle it. It is the same damn thing since the beginning of time. Veil it, hide it, lock it up and throw away the key. We expect a woman to do a man's job, make a man's money, and then walk around with a parasol and lie down for a man to fuck her like it was still a hundred years ago? Well, no thank you!
