I say NO MORE to Sexual Harassment and I say No More because no one should have to to choose between their livelihood, their ability to provide for their children and being physically, mentally and emotionally sexually violated at their place of work. I say No More because no one should have to suffer economic, social and financial loss and burdens, nor be unable to find employment because they chose to stand up for the respect of their bodies. I say No More to nda's that threaten, punish and re-victimize survivors that protect the perpetrators. I say NO MORE because I'VE had enough!
In 2015 I lost my job because I refused to continue being the subject of lewd, inappropriate and unwanted sexual conduct and advances. I was called a liar and opportunist in the media by the perpetrators and their friends,... attorney Gloria Allred refused to take my case because it was socially inconvenient calling it a "conflict of interest" as she was - and still is - an ally to the very people she professes to protect and advocate for women from. Betrayal, disappointment and hypocrisy from every side is what I felt during that very traumatizing and trying time in my life. But!... I decided to press onwards and while I don't know what tomorrow brings, I lend my story, experience and voice to ending the silence of workplace sexual harassment by raising awareness and supporting causes such as this with a message that says You are not the one to be blamed nor should you feel ashamed or intimidated to stand up for yourself and speak your truth.
