Versions of Harvey Weinstein and Hollywood’s casting couch have been played out all across this country in industry after industry. I know, because it happened to me.
After my experience I did extensive research and then conducted seminars on the law of sexual harassment. Still later I conducted investigations into workplace harassment complaints. In most of the cases I encountered, every participant had a completely different understanding of what actually happened. Most weren’t lying – other than to themselves – but few determined their conduct by reference to anyone or anything other than their own interests.
