Sexual harassment in showbiz

A New York Times investigation recently revealed sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein, one of the Most Powerful Men in Hollywood. As of today, over 60 women have alleged that they were sexually harassed or assaulted by the movie mogul. Numerous famous actresses, models and public figures have spoken out and shed light on issues of the sexual exploitation of women in the show business. An industry where so many boundaries have been crossed, to the point that no one even respects them anymore, where some women are told speaking up or saying no will cost them their careers, and where many are forced to trade sex for career success. Three decades of alleged sexual misconduct by one of the Most Powerful Men in Hollywood yet the vast majority of women opted not to divulge their sexual abuse when it happened. When it comes to sexual harassment, women usually do not come forward for many reasons:

Celestine

Lack of knowledge: some women don’t know how to react and are often unaware of their rights and options.

– Fear of reprisal: many do not want to jeopardize their careers and are afraid of retaliation by the harasser or company.

– Not enough proof: some fear that they will not be able to prove their allegations and no one will believe them.

– Shame: others are just embarrassed and do not want people to know.

Celestine

The fact that so many women came forward to describe Weinstein’s abuse validates a series of misdeeds that many have dismissed as false and meaningless for far too long.

When I started modeling, I did not tolerate the inappropriate touching, emails, text messages, phone calls, and indecent proposals. I said NO to opportunities because I did not want to have anything to do with the PIGS that were offering them to me. It breaks my heart to see that so many women feel they have to trade sex for career success. I can only hope that Harvey Weinstein’s fall from grace will change the industry for the better, and women will no longer feel pressured to do things they do not want to do.
