Re­spect and dig­nity

When news broke in Hol­ly­wood of sex­ual as­sault al­le­ga­tions against movie mogul Har­vey We­in­stein, who could have pre­dicted the af­ter­math? Here we are, less than six weeks later, and the scan­dal has not only spread across the world – en­gulf­ing celebri­ties and politi­cians – it’s even threat­en­ing to bring down our Gov­ern­ment.

On p18, we look at how this move­ment is now em­pow­er­ing or­di­nary women to make a stand against sex­ual ha­rass­ment in the work­place. Our shock­ing exclusive sur­vey shows over 40 per cent of Closer read­ers have suf­fered ha­rass­ment at work. One woman, Noeleen Mcaleenon, bravely told us she made a stand against a male col­league be­cause “we de­serve re­spect and dig­nity”. It’s high time this mes­sage was heard loud and clear.
