In the unfolding occasions that experience apparently rocked the leisure trade, even supposing so many declare to have recognized about Mr. Weinstein’s aggression and harassment and lecherous doings, I woke up to a commentary, from an not likely voice, that the ladies in query have been in all probability “asking for it.”
Is this how we have now developed? Is this what the ladies’s motion, feminism and, extra not too long ago, the ladies’s march has yielded? A fellow girl, person who makes her residing dressing well-known ladies in tight, horny attire and person who constructed her empire to do her just right works far and wide the sector, would throw those courageous ladies beneath the bus in a unusual, imply lady model of slut shaming?
I, too, had been subjected to my very own personal, private variations of sexual harassment at the activity. Did I ask for it? No. What I merely requested for was once a role, and what got here with it was once sexual harassment.
Did I ask for it? No. What I merely requested for was once a role, and what got here with it was once sexual harassment.
What I consider we’re all asking for in those cases, is an opportunity to turn our ability, our humanity, an opportunity to specific ourselves and our artwork and in all probability, be part of a movie that may actually create exchange.
Sadly, it all the time takes an excessively well-known particular person to die from an opioid overdose to polish gentle at the opioid epidemic after which, optimistically, create exchange. We thank Prince after his tragic loss of life; the legislation modified and extra importantly, our attitudes.
Perhaps this gruesome energy play to “get some” by way of this brutish thug of a person and the makes an attempt by way of him, his legal professional, his board and well-known pals to, as soon as once more, stay it beneath wraps and blame the sufferer will fail. Perhaps the reality will out different sexual harassment, be it from a governor or a president or a presidential candidate or studio head or film big name or government or any person else complicit on this billionaire boys membership bullsh*t that can come to an inglorious finish.
To quote the nice Helen Reddy, “I am woman hear me roar, in numbers too big to ignore.”
