NYC Man Out on Bail Reform, Brutally Beats 2 Women in 'Violent, Unprovoked' Attacks Then Released Again

"We're witnessing a country that is on the brink. And instead of worrying about, I'm reading about a 23 year old punk monster coward. 23 year old piece of excrement named Daryl Johnson. Listen to this story from the New York Post. A man charged with beating a guy last year was dumped back onto the street thanks to so called bail reform, only to allegedly pummel two women on the upper west side Thursday and be freed again. Daryl Johnson left one of his random female victims show brutally beaten that she suffered a quote disfiguring laceration to her face. Law enforcement sources told the New York Post yesterday. Now this guy has more than a dozen arrests. He was hit with assault and harassment charges when he beat the man. In August of 2020, he allegedly punched his victim about the face with a closed fist multiple times, then he used his feet to kick and stomp the man. But a judge had to release him without any bail. Because none of the charges were eligible for incarceration under revamped state laws. Then, with that case, still pending. This evil monster went up to a 50 year old woman at Broadway and west 79th in Manhattan around 9 20 a.m. Thursday morning. A beat her in a violent, unprovoked attack. This woman was literally scarred for life. She has a disfiguring scar now on her face. Three minutes later, the guy assaulted another woman, a block away, police say. In that incident, he walked up to a 32 year old woman on west 80th street. Pounding her in the face. Both women, women, were taken to saint Luke's hospital. In court, now brace yourself. Sit down if you're standing. Manhattan prosecutors recommended that this guy be released. A request, the judge

CNN Suspends Chris Cuomo for Trying to Clear Andrew Cuomo's Name

"CNN is seeking additional clarity after the attorney general of New York released information that according to Rolling Stone magazine would have gotten any other journalists fired by now. Chris Cuomo in the hot seat in a big way, he's the host of his own CNN show. He's a real real, I don't want to say, I think it's fair to say he's an activist. He's an opinion guy. And he is the brother of the disgraced governor of New York Andrew Cuomo turns out that. The network is now facing a real problem because he helped in a graphic way in a very specific way, his brother. The anchor played a key role in trying to clear his brother or help his brother through the numerous sexual allegations charges against him as the sexual harassment charges that a number of women made against him. You know, it's so weird to feel any empathy for a guy like Chris Cuomo, but of course his argument is family comes first. And he's trying to help his brother. He's also a big highly paid star on CNN every night. Ostensibly being a newsman. My only gripe with CNN is that they pretend to be a news organization and they're not. And they're journalists. If they're going to be journalists, they are supposed to follow the role of journalism. But on the other hand, none of them do. Anywhere.

"While we were doing our speech at the university of michigan some news broke. And as i got off the stage producer. Connor says charro. You won't believe what. Merrick garland the attorney. General of the united states has now decreed or announced. I said well. I usually am not surprised to shocked. But what is it. The justice department last evening has now announced that they are going to use government power to go after parents that are challenging their school boards. Now remember this. All started because this whole narrative all started because the national school board association viola garcia specifically called on the biden regime to start labeling parents speaking out of school board meetings as domestic terrorist. He said that on cnn. I'm gonna play that tape and just a little bit. So the justice department pressured by the national school board association of america responds by saying miss citing an increase in harassment. Intimidation and threats. Okay let's go through those three different things intimidation. Let's start with harassment. What is the definition of harassment. Exactly asking questions showing up the school board meetings writing comments someone's facebook feed number two intimidation what is intimidation. Exactly where in the united states. Federal criminal code is illegal to harass and intimidate somebody under their definition there is their definition of harassment intimidation showing up and actually showing the curriculum that the school boards have been passing the graphic pornographic material that has been implemented for example. Let's play cut thirty two. We have cut thirty to cut thirty. Two stacey langston. This is just one example. We have played dozens and dozens and dozens of these examples over the last couple months. I myself have showed up at school. Board meetings am i guilty of intimidation harassment for speaking and challenging power. Uncut cut thirty two. I want you to listen to this. Is this now. The fbi is new definition of domestic terrorism. Like thirty two. Both books describe different ax. One book describes a fourth grade boy performing oral sex on an adult male. The other book has detailed illustrations of a man having sex with a boy the illustrations include fillet. ceo sex toys masturbation and violent nudity. Now that's stacey langton who says basically in the curriculum is for the graphic material. But i shouldn't apologize because i didn't say it. That's what's in your children's textbooks. I don't. I don't have to apologize for that. Some people send us emails. Charlie why are you planning these tapes so terrible. it's what children are learning exposing.

"Would've beautiful thing. It is for you to be able to to show that. I not that. We set out to do like our fifth or sixth or tenth episode on media so white in canada. But it has been a while since we've named it specifically and i was watching very closely on september thirtieth on the national day for two through reconciliation. How many media organizations use that day for self reflection. And i know one did. I mean i didn't fucking anything so if you if you know if you've got an example of an article that that bucks what i'm saying please send it to me but you know you've got this this way. This white supremacy media establishment in canada that has deep deep deep roots in a lot of things that are wrong with canada. I mean you know the the founder of the globe and mail was like the guy that was that workers had to go on strike within this very famous strike to fight the eight hour workday right and the fight against george brown the first the first publisher of the of the that george brown has ended up. He ended up being killed by one of his employees which part of the story that a lot of people. Don't talk about this. So there is also that history in media but the the fact that that journalism. I'm not going to see an individual journalists because i think that this is all so embedded in a lot of structure. So journalism sees september thirtieth as a day where they're going to talk to indigenous people and talk about reconciliation and talk about maybe projects that are happening or whatever. And that's all really good and and all the fucking time but jer. Journalism has done so much damage in this country and has done so much work on maintaining canada as a white nation that for not a single media organization to be ready to interrogate that to openly. Talk about well you know what. We went through the archives. And we're gonna fuck in. We're going to be accountable for some of the positions that we've held. I mean some of these positions are not that fucking all like the global mail denying genocide as recently as two thousand eighteen. The you don't no one's there yet and so we're talking about white supremacy within within media like it's dot it's also the entire fucking lost twenty months twenty one months and how the pandemic has been written about has been broadcast about and talked about. We've talked a lot on this podcast about that. And no one is ready to have that conversation and so yes the the collateral damage of the media establishments refusal to talk about racism to be accountable for its own racism and be accountable for the way that it constructs canada. A white nation is going to be racial journalists. Thought is going to be the reality and you know this is where journalists need to really understand that connection that connection between the hate that they receive and the the structure of these organizations and then and then say yeah this is this is systemic and then of course not to have these problems fall on their shoulders for organizations like the cj or other organizations unions..

What is the reason behind employers decision to actually do this. Why do they want you to sign off on mandatory arbitration clauses nondisclosures. Before anything even happens. What are the actually looking to prevent or they don't want anything in the public domain. Nothing nothing and recently. I've actually seen some brokerage firms are getting away from finra. Some brokerage firms are actually now putting in their employment agreements that you'll go to triple a. the american arbitration sociation or jams and i would speculate that one reason they'd rather do that is finra puts out public awards Puts out in the end a decision. Now they don't tell you very much typically. But at least you have a name of plaintiff's a defendant affirm right in a decision and usually a little something about the case sometimes more than that usually. It's just a little. And i think even that was more than the securities industry wanted to put up with and the other thing is it they they go to these other forums and they also lock up in doing that. They lock up promises. That people can't even talk about their arbitrations right. So i found saying. I don't think that aaa or jams. I know that finra doesn't say kendra says you can go ahead and talk about whatever you want your arbitration case about the hearing ages. Don't make the documents public right. Let's talk a little bit about when you were going through the process of writing your book and a lot of the read many different portions of your book. I saw a lot of different stories of women and about the experience within the environment the work cultures the the toxic environments that they had to endure an i guess for the listeners. That are listening. Have you seen that can kind kinda give us a little bit of background into like that culture. And how much is that. Culture changed in the last. Let's say now in twenty twenty one from the time when you actually wrote this book that you know in the nineteen nineties and two thousands. It was pretty blatant. people would send strippers into you. Know the trading room men would grab women in front of other people the big actual boom boom. There was a thing called the boom boom room to a smith. Barney branch had a basement party rooms that they call the boom boom room and the guys would go down there and get drunk and women would go down there sometimes too. They were very uncomfortable about it. So i guess the bottom line of that era was do whatever you want. And you don't have to hide. I would say that since me. Two men have caught on. You'd better hide it because people are onto them so they're still sexual harassment. Let's let's not for ourselves. You guys you know more than anybody. You see the campus coming in but i think that men are smarter to do what they do or say what they say when there are people are hand so i think that's. That's one big difference. The other thing that's really different is women are so much better. Inform and as a result of the gretchen. Carlson suit against fox news. She recorded you know she recorded her harass it right and i think the women an awful lot of women and i'm sure you guys you can tell me what you see an awful lot of women walk into the offices of lawyers. I speak to and they've already got recorded of guys harassing them. So women are much more savvy about building their records before they actually file a complaint. I think education is the biggest difference and john. C it so so blatantly but it still happens a lot of the women in the nineties that you interviewed. Were a lot of the women hesitant to come. Forward had a fear of shen. Or 'cause i'm surprised you even got that many women to to talk to you. Yeah it wasn't easy definitely wasn't easy. They were terrified. Acid terrified. i remember when i was first working on that very first story about the coming lawsuit. I had a draft of the lawsuit before it was filed. And i was lining up interviews to do when i got home at night because they couldn't talk to me from worse and it was pulling teeth. I had to have like. I'd have people bad for my character. And then finally i would get an interview setup half the time i would get on the phone with these women and they start telling me their story and they would get so upset. They couldn't proceed with interview and so yes. It took a long time to gain trust from people. He took an even longer time for people to agree to go on the record. And i you know. I i love when people go on the record because it helps my stories right the credibility of them but i also understand why women don't want to because when you speak out your history right so yes they were. They were very very frightening and to this day. A lot of the women from back. Then when i talk to them i mean they'll still break down and cry about what happened to them and they still feel the impact and ptsd. They're very sad story. What happened to them. Susan i wanted to ask you. How do you see i guess the metoo movement and how do you see sexual harassment allegations and complains and i guess sexual harassment in general at actually happening in a post covid landscape. The reason i ask is because cova has taken its toll obviously on a lot of daily activities and a lot of things that we kind of took for granted socially right in terms of just free movement and we've seen at least a drought right in terms of the number of people who are complaining of sexual harassment or sexual harassment cases. I think by virtue of the fact that people just aren't going to work people are working from home. The things that typically lead to sexual harassment are just having existed as much for example. I remember jeff. And i worked together at a firm where you could almost bank on christmas party. Sexual harassment allegations from basically mid december until mid january. We calls all the time about this and obviously didn't have any holiday. Parties shouldn't have halloween parties and so on and so forth so expect to my original question is what if anything do you see the covid. Nineteen pandemic in hiatus from people going into the office and having social gatherings. And how do you think that'll impact. I guess people sexually harass others going forward if at all.

"harassment" Discussed on Workplace Justice

"By an award winning investigative journalist who has been featured as a columnist at new york times bloomberg the street and usa. Today she is the author of the metoo book about sexual harassment on wall street tales from the boom boom room. The landmark legal battles that expose wall street's shocking culture of sexual harassment. susan intel. Thank you so much for taking out the time to speak with us here. Susan tell us about your book. I'm intrigued tell us. About what made you write the book. Tell us the whole experience of really writing these book back in. I'm assuming the nineties. I was writing the nineties and it got published in two thousand two. So yeah so i had broken story about a lawsuit that women at smith barney brought against the firm for sexual harassment. It became a class action suit and So i perfect story of writing a lot of follow up stories and it actually was getting a lot of attention at the time and i can literally tell you the moment when i decided to write a book because i was sitting at my desk at bloomberg and i had just seen a feature story in a florida paper where a woman broker was featured smith barney broker talking about how she loves her job and how well smith party treated her which was not the case in the twenty two thousand people who qualified for the class and that weekend i had seen a full page ad in the new york times magazine were smith. Barney was presenting itself as a real friend of women. It was a commercial about their breast cancer awareness efforts which they never done anything like that before. I sent my guest. I said you know if. I don't write a book about this. These peop- bergener rewrite history. Now they're going to spin this their way. They have a massive pr operation. And they're going to change the facts. Here alternate facts and said at that moment. Nothing is going to stop me. I'm going to write a book about this and so that you know it took a couple of years. I was threatened with lawsuits. It got pretty ugly talked to a lot of lawyers of men who was allegedly sexually harassing people and in the end. I think i think that what i produced most importantly was really a roadmap for women. I mean that's not the way it reads because it's the narrative but really what i wanted was to just show exactly how this system worked so that any woman going into the system was gonna understand the advisable stuff to do stuff. She shouldn't do and most of all how she was going to be treated. Because it's as all of you know it's a terrible process for women go through so that was sort of the short version of why i wrote the book and what it took but there was a lot of blowback. There was there you know. There were a lot of threats coming from lots of companies including smith. Barney who's whose lawyer there came a point in writing the book where a lot of people over two year period had declined to speak with me and after a couple of years. I thought you know i better go back to them because anybody could call them and say i'm writing a book rate and i've never back to them and tell them what i've learned about them and give them the option of commenting and so i sent out. I think it was forty. Four certified registered letters to various players. And i said you know. I mean it was really letters crazy having the stuff that i had to like. Describe that they'd allegedly done. And one of the letters that i got back was a seven and a half page single spaced letter from the outside defamation council at smith barney basically saying that if i wrote the book they were gonna suny and so it was a pretty contentious process. Yeah book was published after the case had already concluded and settled or was it during we actually during because what happened in that case a judge certified the class and instead of preceding and doing what is done usually as done getting chunk of money nebi distributed. They set up a system another system of arbitration. So the women who were in the class then had to go one by one into arbitration system that setup using some people at duke university and they had it into tears i could just. I could just get an offer from the company for how much money they'd like to give you an if you didn't like that you could go into mediation and if the mediation didn't work you could then go into this arbitration and. Interestingly for the first time ever the arbitration was not allow members of the media. While i read. I read these stores confidential. No the only time that the only time arbitrations were not confidential. And i read these terms. And i said they're not gonna let anything code arbitration but in fact of them did and i attended i dunno. I think five or six different arbitrations that they were really interesting. There was a later lawsuit brought by women. Merrill lynch is very similar lawsuit and same plaintiff's lawyers and a very similar arbitration system was set up there and i went to a lot of those operations to so by the time i wrote the book there when i read the book is still were some women who had not gotten away through that arbitration simple car and that's a very common process at least we've seen is when you have wall street bank sir hedge funds is that they have these very particular and very thoroughly drafted employment agreements when you start to basically say if for any there's any legal matter for which you seek to pursue. The first step is mandatory mediation. And if that is unsuccessful you have mandatory arbitration. I mean they're julie pursuant to finra right finres in there as well but for the matters involving what we do we we do most stuff which is out outside ephedra and it's basically everything they can do to keep you out of court right. Even even it's the whole mandatory mediation process supersedes the ability to even file in court. There's a lot of times people challenge arbitration agreements as being unenforceable but mediation provision is absolutely enforceable. So it's that first bite at the apple is well even so that we can keep it out of any kind of court. Refers can have a mediation process. It's very common with banks with big especially still doesn't prevent plaintiff's counsel from filing the lawsuit getting a rob forcing them to compel are well. Let's put it this way and this comes from just the plaintiff's attorney i've never met a plaintiff's attorney a good one who cannot find a reason to challenge arbitration agreement. You might not win right but you can get it in court you get filed and you can get the court to basically say you have to give me interim reports about what's going on with it and that way if the defendant's right if they are pulling any games and funny business with the arbitration at that point can reach out to the court and say they're violating the arbitration agreements. So the court should rip up is unenforceable and we should proceed through the court process at that point. That's when defendants because we're recording. I'm not gonna say. I was ordering get scared. And that's when they begin to mysteriously very much comply with the arbitration process. All of a sudden as soon as you say. I'm right in the court to tell them. You're not following the rules. And i want this to be deemed on enforceable. Wait wait wait wait wait. Hold on a minute. So there's a whole issue with you. Know there's a new law. New york that prohibits arbitration mandatory arbitration agreements someone dealing with discrimination cases including sexual harassment. And there's a split in authority now was to whether it's actually enforceable or whether the federal arbitration act preempts it so right now there's a federal court that found that it was unenforceable and.

"harassment" Discussed on Short Wave

"Now if the mosaic expedition sounds familiar to you, , it might be because back in December we aired two episodes on the research being done. . But today we're turning away from the research and focusing on Chelsea's reporting. . The Mosaic Expedition Gender Discrimination and harassment and how they're an all too common reality for many field scientists. . I'm Maddie Safai and this a shortwave from NPR. . So on October eighth a few weeks. . Into the mission a meeting was called and it was led by this communications manager, , with Awa, , the German institute kind of spearheading the mission like who was there and what was that meeting about. . Right. . So that meeting was held by Katharina Vice Tweeter who was a Manager and she held that meeting with all of the journalists who were on board the ship at that time, , and so at that point, , there were four of us all women, , and so we all sat down and she kind of told us. . I want to just clarify. . The rules of the new dress code that was announced yesterday at the General Meeting, , and then she went on to tell us you know this is a safety issue and there are a lot of men on board this ship <hes>, , and some of them are going to be on this ship for months at a time, , and this is a safety issue something that needs to be taken seriously and so. . I should say she did not come out and say we are concerned that. . Men On this shipper going to harass you or assault you if you dress a certain way so <hes> but it was heavily implied by this. . Multiple Times telling us there are many men on board the ship and you need to not wear tight fitting clothing or revealing clothing. . Yeah. . Yeah I mean, , what did you take from that? Like ? when you walked away from that meeting what did you take from them? ? Well what we took from. . It was that there was a risk of harassment or something worse. . You know if we didn't dress more modestly on board the ship. . And, , we really were alarmed by this because we started wondering. . If. . There had been some incidents that had prompted the change in the rules and what was this bit about a safety issue <hes>? ? was there some threat to the safety of the women on board and what? ? Exactly? ? was that threat and so we were you know, , of course irritated. . By by implication that we should have to change the way we dress because there are a lot of men on board the ship, , but we were also alarmed. . Yeah I, , mean when you wrote about the dress code meeting, , you noted that it came after some problems with harassment that had already sort of percolated on the ship. . That's correct. . Although at the time we actually were not aware of that. . So as I reported the story <hes> that that came out in my reporting later, , there had been <hes> a an incident in which some women on board the ship reported to the cruise leader that that they had been harassed by men on board the ship, , and then you know there was a meeting, , it was brought to the captain and the men were prohibited from further contact with those participants and and it was never made widely known. . Anybody else on board that ship that there had been an incident like this And so nobody knew about this at the time, , the dress code was announced. . So you know we all Kinda had this suspicion about a safety. . What exactly does that mean? ? was there some incident but I did not find out that any incident had occurred until much later. . And this wasn't the only incident of gender-based discrimination while you were aboard. Right . you wrote that the dress code kind of became a symbol of these inequities, , but there was other stuff going on to. . That's correct. . So there was the harassment incident <hes> that occurred shortly before the dress code was enacted, and , then later on, , there was an incident in which. . A group of Were kind of called together. . Asked to volunteer basically to participate in a work assignment and the work incitement involved a helicopter ride over to. . The Polar Stern, , which was the main research vessel participating the expedition and. . Helping to unload a bunch of boxes and supplies and that sort of thing and so. . The group volunteered for this work assignment, , originally consisted of both men and women <hes>, , and then later on the cruise leader removed the to women participants from that assignment and replace them with men and I'm told that this event also sparked a lot of resentment <hes> among the women who were familiar with the incident, , and so you know I asked crews leader later about this incident and he said that he did this to comply with a German law that dictates How much men are allowed to lift on work assignments versus women are allowed to lift on work assignments <hes> but it was a little odd because he sent me the law and I looked at over and the way he described the work assignment and the amount of weight that was going to be distributed among the people participating those weights should have actually exceeded the weight limits for both men and women. . So I could not get really a clear justification on why only women were removed from that work assignment and again people who are involved with that situation or who were familiar with that situation we're upset by that as well. . Yeah. . I mean, , Chelsea, , this isn't just the mosaic right in your reporting. . You discussed a twenty eighteen study by the National Science Foundation about the prevalence of sexual harassment and you noted according to the study the. . Two biggest predictors are settings where they're more men than women and I'm quoting environments that suggest a tolerance for bad behaviour I mean is this the situation that you saw when you were reporting on the Mosaic Mission? ? Right? ? So I spoke with various <hes> experts on a gender and policy in field science and in polar science and they all kind of pointed to leadership on these expeditions. That's . really a primary factor in kind of environment. . Is it going to be you know for the women participating in these expeditions and so it's really important from what I've been told by these experts to have a leadership that is prepared to deal with issues of sexual harassment or discrimination. . If they should come up leadership that's trained to deal with these kinds of issues that's train to prevent these kinds of issues from coming up in the first place. . Leadership, , that sets very clear rules and boundaries at the start of an expedition for what will be tolerated and what will not be tolerated and I think that really does speak to what went wrong on academic fed off. . You know there was a dress code that was enacted midway through the cruise. . It was a surprise to everybody it was communicated in a really kind of vague and distressing an alarming way. . Harassment incident that arose that was kind of it'd be swept under the rug a little bit at the time may or may not have influenced the dress code. . So. . Yes. . I think this really all speaks to kind of a lack of preparation to prevent these kinds of issues arising in the first place and from dealing with them <hes> in the proper ways when they do arise. . Yeah. . Yeah and you know Chelsea I'm wondering what is the response to your piece? ? Ben So far <hes> since you wrote. . The response to the peace has been mainly very positive so far. . So I've heard from a lot of scientists researchers both in polar science and in other fields. . Who have been very supportive and who have said you know this is an issue that happens all the time that's very common but that needs to be talked about more and so you know it's very important to kind of bring these issues into the light and. . It has been. . It's it's not been great to hear that there are so many other people who have had similar experiences. . You know that's that's disappointing and distressing to hear but you know. . But a lot of people have said you know this, , this is very common and it's good that we're starting to talk about this more do. . Yeah. . I mean you mentioned Chelsea some moments of solidarity from the participants aboard the most recent being this unified statement responding to your article signed by the large majority of Grad, , students on board. . Did this. . You know inspire any hope for you about the future of the this type of field research. . It did absolutely, , it did that statement basically said that it was disappointing to see rules and policies on board. . The ship that might imply that women should have to change the way they dress to manage the behavior of men or policies that might limit women's involvement in fieldwork, , and so you know the students know in their statement that they were. . You know grateful for. . The opportunity to go on the expedition into work with leading polar scientists in the field. . But this was something that that was not acceptable to them and you know it wasn't courage to read that statement and to just kind of see the interest in the concern about these kinds of issues from you know what's going to be the next generation of polar scientists and I do think that this is something that will hopefully <hes> Garner a little bit more attention inspire some change in the future. .

"Games have become a huge release for lots of people. Especially, the many who are entering their six month of some sort of corona virus lockdown in June sales. Video Games were up twenty six percent from a year ago. But online harassment has been a problem in gaming for years and in June dozens of women accused streamers, people who broadcast their gaming on twitter youtube of sexual harassment, abuse or assault. Now time video game activist is launching a hotline for people who play Games, or work in the games industry to get support, Anita? Sarkisian is executive, Director of the nonprofit media site feminist frequency I. think that's streaming is a new medium and that while it's the same old abuses of power, it might look a little bit different or it might play out a little bit differently. If this isn't a workplace issue, you don't have an hr to go to if you even trust your hr right like a lot of people don't rightfully. So and so what does it mean for a community to rally and to reckon with abuses that are happening how? How do we hold people accountable in a space that doesn't really have mechanisms for it, and I think those are some of the questions that were starting to ask and understand like is it that we just kicked people out of our communities? When enough? When when someone, who's brave enough to come forward tells her story of abuse. How do we put survivors victims I when we're talking about like, what does it mean to create safe communities and spaces? Is there also an aspect of that? That says, Hey, company, you need to be responsible for some of this as well and bringing them. You know what should have already been irrefutable data but view. Yes. This is this is that tension of we know that you've known that this has been going on, where have you been <hes>? So we need to move out of this sort of reactionary space and into really reckoning with from the ground up, how are we building our workplaces in our communities to deal with the fact that these abuses can happen and to really center victims in that? Right. How do we deal with it so that we can try and minimize these issues from happening at all. Let's talk for a minute about the other side of the equation, talk to me about the unique issues that come up for people who make video games 'cause. I. Think maybe not everyone is familiar with how tough that industry can be in the games industry. We have really cute little word to describe overworking. And it's called crunch, and this is something that I think we see in tech in general. But specifically in Games, I don't think there's a separation between the issues around crunch and burn out and what we're talking about in regards to abuse because they come from the same root of not really trusting or caring for the humanity of your workers. We see that so much <hes>. Especially, the really big game studios. Do you see you've been at this for a long time and I admire your strength because? Man Do you get beat up on the Internet? And probably in real life too. and I wonder do you see improvement? Do think things are getting any better? You think they'd have a canned response to its. At this point because I get asked a lot and the answer is complicated and I think that anyone who answers that in a way that isn't complicated isn't seeing the full picture. Right. There is something to just acknowledge here when you've been in these spaces, right at any activists that's been doing work for a long time is tired and it's a lot harder to give to be hopeful and to be optimistic and to see the bright side of things. So I just want to preface acknowledge that like we we all kind of need a rest it to be honest. and. It affects how we talk about and look at change. So. All of that is to say in some ways. Yes, and in some ways, no feminist frequency has been collecting data for the last five years and the the major game studios that announce games every year at e three, which is our biggest biggest gaming events. Now, that didn't happen this year, but they're still these announcements and what we found when we collected the data of the gender identity of the playable characters games is that over the last five years. We have seen almost no change. The lowest point was three percent and the highest point was nine percent and female characters as protagonists like that's five years of time that there's not much change there. Now, there's other change in the data, right? That shows that games that have a gender binary option that have character choice where it's an array of characters you can choose from that's increasing, but we're not seeing a statistical increase in the amount of female characters were seeing as protagonist. Another data point is that yeah, we're not seeing quite as. As much agree just sexism. It doesn't mean it doesn't still exist and it doesn't mean there's still a lot of work that needs to be done but I think we are seeing some shifts in the industry, and that brings us to what's next. Right. We need to be talking about the stories that are being told, the ways that mechanics are being designed, who's getting hired, who gets to tell those stories. There's still a lot a lot of work that needs needs to be done as we're moving towards creating a more inclusive games industry. Anita Sarkisian is the Executive Director of the nonprofit media site feminist frequency. The Games, and online harassment hotline is launching today. We'll have a link to it at marketplace tech dot.

"Because it's not about compliments it's about power it's all about power in the same way that rape is not about sex. It's about power and am I saying that. All men who del women to smile are rapists. No but it's still. It is a fact of it's an issue of power. Yeah because I have a hard time thinking that the men who yelled at me to smile were yelling at other men to smile he. I have a hard time believing that it was just like. Gosh darn it. You guys are just want the world to be a happier place at this train station more smiles. Yeah and and so I mean when you when you look at that. Look at things in the context of that. I think that says a lot too and so it's really important to not just have this conversation with adults and fellow people in the world get catcalled and harassed on the streets and public against their will. I think it's important to talk to kids about these issues to maybe not go into so many gruesome details perhaps but to discuss issues of consent and what is and is not appropriate and we want to acknowledge to you before we close out that. We're talking about a very slim minority of men who are doing this but the reaction of that slim minority behavior to the you know the majority's reaction to it says a lot. Yeah but now. We want to hear from our listeners.

Fox's character on the good wife I think most lawyers would gladly alter their appearance or exaggerate a disability to sway the jury or the judge in their clients favor in response to your question about how big this problem is. It isn't a big problem because unlike TV most lawyers don't go to court so often. So thanks for that insight. So I have a letter here from Lauren In response to Our Lady Lawyers Address Code episode and she might not agree with the author of that last letter Christian in terms of staying true to just black and gray. She says as a lady lawyer. I am very conscious of what I wear to court. I'm a mid western middle-class raised GAL but at thirty five I became a named partner in a Boston law firm through sheer hard work. And a few smarts as unfortunate as it is women in the courtroom do need to think about what they wear and how they wear it much more than our male counterparts however this does not mean that women should shirk their individuality wear a skirt suit that hits just below the knee and a modest button up shirt but make the suit read. I've found that so long as the length and neckline or appropriate and what comes from. Your mouth is intelligent. Judges and fellow lawyers will respect you. I never wear black suits. And I always wear Stiletto Heels. Asked anyone in my courthouse and they will tell you. I force to be reckoned with lots of love to you. Ladies and if any lady lawyer hopeful lady lawyers in the Boston area I would love to help her succeed in any way I can. So thank you Laurin and thanks to everybody. Who's written into us?

"harassment" Discussed on Stuff Mom Never Told You

"Respectful. It was admiring. It was supportive that the general overall theme of these stories was like. Yeah good for you. Women don't take that awful. Mashing from those awful mashes on the street corner you need to defend yourself and by nineteen twenty around three hundred female. Police officers had been hired around the country at larger municipal police forces specifically to deal with this Masher problem which makes me realize that we have not done a on women police officers but hey now we have our jumping off point for that and I mean speaking of legal issues women who were victims of street harassment were strongly encouraged to prosecute their tormenters. There were a few brave souls who really stepped up and said No. I'm I'm taking this guy to court though. It could mean dragging your good name through the mud even though people could perceive it as being some type of scandal. Or you sort of speaking out of your feminine. Womanly turn There's a lot of women at this time saying. Look you guys. You won't give me the vote. Well that was earlier but I mean I'm not going to stand up for this stuff anymore especially radical for black women to prosecute men in court as well because up to this point. I mean still with this too and and we talked about this in our episode on the history of Rape in the United States. How all of the focus on measures was more concerned really exclusively concerned over the safety of white women on the streets because this is when we have the prevailing idea that while sexual assault can't really happen to black women because they're hyper sexual is to begin with and he also still have you know the construct of the black man as the violent rapist targeting white women but there was a lot of conversation around street harassment in Particularly in black newspapers women talking to other women about this and so by the twenties you do start to see more black women to getting more directly involved in this. Because can you imagine at the time being a black woman bringing a charge an Masher charge against a white man? That would have been. I'm sure that would have been scandalizing for some people But then after women get the vote with the Nineteenth Amendment in nineteen twenty and with the end of World War. One we see the Anti Masher movement die down. I mean it really reached this fever pitch and then fades away as if it never happened. Almost yeah but it's I mean the context of it fading away as sort of icky. Because you you lose that whole idea of chivalrous masculinity and men enlisting men to help protect women from guys like that to the assertion of a more aggressive ideal of manhood around the same time that female flirtation becomes more popular and popularly depicted by actresses onscreen light Clara Bow. And so you get this sentiment this this prevailing notion that things like cat calling in street harassment are almost just more comical and normalized. Because hey they wanNA flirt with me. Yeah it's almost the other side of the coin of we have the the emergence of the new woman we have Sexuality starting to kind of becomes slightly more Normalized in terms of women expressing it as well as men and so with that though it is the idea of well. You want this. Don't you so here you go like why. Why would it be strange at all for me to comment on your body? If you're wearing clothes that are more revealing than ever before and if you're wearing makeup like an actress on the screen and you are actively flirting with men. Well then why are? Why don't you want to talk to and yelled out on the street? And it's still Friedman sums up this this transition pretty well In redefining rape. She writes after the nineteen twenties the negotiation of urban space for the purposes of wage. Earning shopping or flirtation increasingly took the form of individual resistance rather than a social movement for a short period however the revolt against the Masher provided a political response to sexual vulnerability tributes to self defense suffragettes visions of police authority the willingness of black women to report white men do with authorities and the reactions of black men all contested white men's sexual entitlements and I think that goes back to what I was saying about how great it was that newspapers back then. We're cheering women on for taking these men on. I mean that's on the one hand women shouldn't have to defend yourself against these men. It shouldn't be happening. But the fact that they are being vocal and active physically active about standing up to these guys and ended up being cheered on for it. I mean I think that's an amazing thing. Well and and it's just so incredible to think in mind boggling to think about the fact that we've been literally fighting for freedom in a public space for a century plus. Yeah now since we've been in a public space exactly and so the question then is why. Why now this sort of Twenty First Century Anti Masher Movement Revival I think a lot of it has to do with feminism and technology. Kind of the perfect intersection of those two things. Because if you look in the nineteen seventies second way feminist absolutely focused on street harassment. They started the reclaim the night. Also known as take back. The night initiatives Which again you have the focus on street harassment as more women entering the public and male dominated spaces of women you know sort of the revived idea of. Hey we can go get jobs perhaps But then again. It sort of dies down a bit until two thousand five when Emily May Starts. Holler back which really started. I mean an incredible movement. Yeah and this is. It's such a product of its time in terms of being a digital thing. You know you go back to women who are taking boxing classes in at the turn of the twentieth century and saying. I'M NOT GONNA put up with this. I'm going to learn how to defend myself. And then you fast forward to the two thousand and you have women who are actually snapping cell phone pictures of the guys who are verbally attacking them or in the case of the woman who inspired hollow back efforts she snapped a cell phone picture of a guy who was publicly masturbating while staring at her which she was then able to use successfully in his prosecution because while while cackling is not illegal in New York City it is in fact illegal to masturbate in public just. Fyi I By taking on street harassment from the social media approach it has empowered men and women to identify and call out their harassers. And Emily may talked before about how The idea of all too not just from The that initial cell phone photo but also in conversations with Guy Friends of hers about the experience of walking around and one of them commenting like you walk down a completely different metaphorically speaking sidewalk than I do now. Just like they hadn't even realized before that experience of what street harassment feels like and. I think that's why a lot of times in response to these conversations the knee-jerk deflection is. It's just a compliment where you victimizing yourself but the fact that it typically happens when you are isolated or possibly with other women. But I don't think I've ever gotten yelled at when I've been with a male friend or a boyfriend or brother or father whoever it's very specific in that kind of approach. It's intended to make you feel vulnerable right exactly and I mean in terms of perspective. There was the one kind of social experiment that we read about where a woman dressed up like a man and a man dressed up like a woman and they sent them on their way through the streets and the woman felt reported that she felt such relief at being invisible for once it just being able to walk down the street from Point A. Point B. Whereas the man who was wearing fake breasts and everything I mean he was dressed as a woman Found himself putting on his jacket to avoid to try to deflect people staring at him at his fake chest and wishing that he had more clothes on because he just felt so gross being stared up. Well we heard from a gay guy not too long ago. Who wrote in to US Because he has long hair. He tends to wear tighter jeans. And I believe we even read the letter on A podcast episode awhile back. But he was walking down the street going home or going somewhere and was aggressively yelled at by a guy in a car who mistook him for a woman and he said that he he was so it was so terrifying because the person followed him for a little while and he finally turned around and yelled back at him but he'd never experienced that before in the.

"harassment" Discussed on Stuff Mom Never Told You

"Hello and welcome to the PODCAST. I'm Kristen and I'm caroline and today we are revisiting a topic that we talked about in two thousand eleven but we absolutely need to talk about it again because there are lots of conversations going on these days about calling and street harassment. Yeah because I'm sure you guys are familiar with the Hollywood video. That just came out not too long ago featuring a woman. She's an actress walking through the streets of New York for ten hours and facing numerous catcalls and street harassment from men on the street. The video itself attracted a lot controversy because of the way it was edited to edit out a lot of white men who were doing cat calling in various street harassment things To feature mostly men of color but that being said the video itself sparked a huge conversation online between among and women about what is street harassment. When is it just complimenting win? Is it something scary? And what does it mean for all of us at large yeah and speaking of Holler back? Which is the nonprofit that produce that viral video? We first talked about street harassment on the podcast when Holler back was first gaining a lot of media attention It was founded in two thousand and five by Emily May and it was started specifically to attract more attention to the issue of street harassment and of acilitator bigger conversations about the frequency of street harassment. And how it very much is harassment. Also give people tools to fight back and also connect with other people on this issue and the fact that pretty much any time a woman SIS gender transgender and gay men as well leave their houses and walk down the sidewalk a lot of times. That means dealing with what you mystically call cat calling and being that viral video as well did response to it just highlighted problems on top of problems for the very fact that Shoshana Roberts Uzi actress in it immediately received rape threats. She has alerted the police in the neighborhood. She lives in that. This is what's going on and these are the threats. She's received so in case something happens. They'll know who she is when she calls. Yeah to me. That's I mean not to get off on a tangent but there's Echoes of what's happening with the neater. Sarkisian there too in terms of like so you. You call out a problem. People say no. It's not a problem but I'm going to threaten to kill you or rape you or Arabia. Yeah exactly and so another issue of course with things that this video sort of dug up is the fact that a lot of people's response to it is just women it. This is your problem. I'm just trying to give you a compliment. You're playing the victim role you just want to be the victim. You just want attention and you know making it more about the woman in it being her problem than it being a social problem at large. Yeah it's just a compliment. Learn how to take a compliment. Yeah and and if you're curious on the difference between catcalls and compliments you can go to stuff. Oh never told US youtube page and watch the video if catcalls for compliments in which you'll get a lot of examples of the differences between the two so I up though let's define street harassment and also offer some statistics so we can get a grasp of how often this is happening. This is not just something happening to Shauna Roberts when she is making a video for hollow back so street harassment to define it is the sexual harassment of typically SIS and Trans Women in public spaces by typically men who are strangers and that includes both verbal and nonverbal behavior at tends to be comments on the women's Physique and her very presence in public a lot of the time it also has to do with smiling. Hey woman over there smile smile. We'll see you smile. So how common is it There was a nationally representative study sponsored by Stop Street harassment which found that sixty five percent of all women and twenty five percent of all men had experienced it and among the women twenty three percent had been sexually touched. Twenty percent of been followed and nine percent had been forced to do something sexual. I think that is a different way of saying sexual assault Lgbt identified respondents. Also likelier to experience it one. Statistic they highlighted was it by age. Seventeen seventy percent of lgbt individuals experienced street harassment compared to forty nine percent of heterosexual people and it also happens around the world. Yeah The site medium. Got into this by assigning. Diaries essentially to women in cities all around the world in New York San Francisco Los Angeles Mexico City Berlin in Italy in Mongolia in Tel Aviv. Nairobi in Singapore And based on these women's experiences they found that the woman in Mexico City experienced the worst cat-calling she had a high of twenty nine catcalls in a single week versus tel-aviv and Los Angeles which tied for the least cat call heavy locations with just two each and there were a lot of common hallmarks for this kind of behavior It tended to happen most often during commute time specifically when women were alone although men doing the cat were just as likely to be alone as with other men And the most common form of it just commanded a smile they just WanNa see his smile. Caroline yeah I used to get this All the time when I took public transportation to work not that I would not continue to. It's just I moved and Blah Blah Blah. I just don't want you to think poorly of me. I wish I could take anyway Yeah I used to get this all the time and what was so weird is I never got it from a man in a business suit. I always got it from homeless men who were hanging out at the train station. I mean. That's my personal experience. I know everyone has different experiences but speaking to that experience some people have talked about this socio economic intersections with this. Because it's a lot about not compliments obviously but it has a lot to do with power ray and power over public spaces and cat calling in street harassment. I should say is often used as a tool by people who might feel more economically and socially marginalized to assert their power and so in speaking to the BBC about why some men do this. Catherine's ZIPPO. Who is a sociology? Professor at Northeastern University said quote oftentimes. It's not really about the women it's just about the men performing masculine acts for each other and establishing a pecking order amongst themselves was really going on is the dynamic among men and in that. It's so it's so crucial to this conversation understanding it that this is the dynamic among men that's happening in public spaces right because and I mean this goes back forever. As far as the conflict that occurs and has always occurred when women enter a public sphere. I mean this is not cat calling and street harassment is not a new conversation. Kristen and I read one article that was like Oh this is a problem. That goes all the way back to the nineteen seventies and it definitely has roots much much deeper and that go back much much farther when women. I left the home to begin with exactly pretty much as soon as we began entering the public sphere on a day-to-day basis. This issue arose and a lot of information is coming from is still friedman who is a scholar in Stanford's claiming Institute for Gender Research and she also wrote the book redefining rape and just speaking of some etymology. When it comes to cat calling I thought it was was really interesting. The term comes from theater. It goes back to the mid seventeenth century for a combination of cat and call originally denoting kind of whistle or squeaking instrument used to express disapproval now when we get into street harassment in the nineteenth century and into the early twentieth century. It went by a different name. It wasn't so much cat-calling but mashing and the Masher both of which also have theatrical roots. Yeah this Christian. I got so caught up in this reading about the masters in his fascinating stuff and it is just further proof that the harassment of women in public spaces is definitely not a new thing. So the term mash comes from Nineteenth Century Theatre Slang. Meaning a sweetheart or a crush. Typically of a male audience member on a female actress and for example in eighteen eighty to a theater guide. Define measures quote masculine theatergoers? Who's wild ambition is to attract and hold female attention now. The first time I heard about mashing was actually In reading about the cultural history of female friendship and around the same time to you would describe having intensely strong like a platonic passionate feelings for a girlfriend as a smash and they would also they would exchange these Mash notes to each.

"I mean you could go this website and do some research to give you some ideas as to whether that's the case right yes absolutely and it's important for not just employees employers but for managers is to understand what their legal responsibilities are. They have specific legal responsibilities for reporting and addressing sexual harassment. That's been reported to them. Okay okay so this is a homework assignment that for managers out there. I mean it's pretty serious. You know you you want to know what your legal responsibilities are if you are a boss and You no and I'll tell you I've I've been in different workplaces where I've seen kind of a vastly different approach to this stuff. Very early in my career. I worked at a little suburban newspaper bureau down in Massachusetts. It's and you know and and the The boss had pinups hanging out on the walls. And you know it was. It was a pretty weird thing for for me. You would come in from just out of college and I was. I've been kind of steeped in a lot of a work against Sexism and pornography and all this kind of stuff and you walk into this office in March of the wall and I'm like okay. Here's a cultural change and anyway that's that is Just kind of one flavor. Obviously there are other places and you go where you know. I've had other experiences where I kind of said is this like too tightly regulated. Is He does the manager get up too soon and say hey you better cut this out right now when somebody makes them slightly off color joke or something I don't know and and that's that's the gray area. We talk about right. I mean there's a huge range in their behaviors. There is a huge range but but generally generally people will either the people committing the actor on the receiving end of whatever. The behavior is You know when you're when you're crossing that line or a bystander knows when someone has crossed that line and it's it's really not that difficult to To Not Cross it okay and treat everybody with dignity and respect who you work with. I think a lot of they talk about the the reasonable person test. Yeah you know what a reasonable person perceived as as if they just sort of watched from you know a a video or film of what was happening in this interaction with say that it's out of hand or they say you know it's not a big deal I mean. I think that that would be the one obvious. Question there Also we talked about the role of bosses and just before the bottom of the hour break. I I wanted to mention. Obviously if you are a person who is feeling Like this stuff's coming down on you you know. You're you're the victim mirror you are the target of Some kind of sexual harassment or something Resources there too right. I mean yeah. That's the place to go that workplaces for all DOT DOT DOT GOV. There's a quick link you can click to get some quick basic information about what you should do first. And then there's also very very detailed information about how the process will go and what you should do. Yeah and if I would imagine some people who are in the middle who are kind of witnesses to in a series of interactions in the workplace entertaining themselves Uh I hope this isn't the line and I'm a little unsure etc so I got her that they can maybe do some research in this realm to their great resources on this website. for bystanders. That will help you figure out whether or not what you're seeing crosses the line it so help educate people in. How do you approach somebody who you think is a target of sexual harassment and what to do With documentation of it you know. Don't don't don't email yourself on your company email if you are trying to document it but you know offer to be there as as a support all right. We're we're.

"A year women particularly you women particularly minority women are often placed in jobs with lower status and are more likely to be hard for lower paying segments like quick serve and family style than for higher-paying segments like fine dining this difference in power create an environment where sexual harassment is tolerated ignored or normalized because employees do not feel comfortable confronting others about inappropriate behavior. You're the industry's high turnover rate seventy percent annually can also contribute to this culture as targets of harassment are likely to leave before making any complaints and I wanna were this this ends. I WANNA I WANNA go back to you guys experience of sexual harassment have you have you brought it up or have you just left other jobs has has have you been a job where sexual resumes taken place and you just left instead of bringing it up personally us and what made you just leave. Instead instead of wizard was uphill battle that you couldn't win. I would say it was a bunch of different factors but ultimately I didn't feel comfortable coming coming forward with some things like for instance. I had a customer one time reach across the bar and put his finger at my belly button. it was yeah yeah why was by myself in the bar. it was really slow night. It was just me and one other patron and he had been drinking probably they had two and a half years was sitting at the edge of the bar and I without any provocation just leaned across the bar and stuck his finger my belly button and he called it trying to me and inappropriate. I didn't even have time to react. I know that's gross. It's ridiculously gross. I don't even under okay so wait. You just left that job instead of bringing that up I did did you couldn't bring that upper that it was quote unquote silly to bring it like did you feel like you're overreacting think management. Maybe wouldn't take you seriously just like why. Is that a big deal. Is that what you didn't bring up or It wasn't that I thought management wouldn't take it seriously. I just felt more comfortable leaving that job just for other factors yeah yeah but I didn't ever bring it up to my management at the time okay but it was extremely uncomfortable. I kind of frozen the situation because because I didn't know what to do and we had thumper back there which is a giant wooden bat essentially in my first reaction after the fact of like coming. Coming out of shock was like man. I should just like smack this guy that he feels with it but yeah that's that's one of many instances of guest of going over the edge and feeling super comfortable when they shouldn't outside inside of the guest experience. Have you ever had the same similar experience with like a manager or someone empower above you like that just was inappropriate or fake wrestling. Thankfully I haven't the most uncomfortable thing I ever had happened. Via Manager was we had a manager used to throw ice chips donner shirts when we are working thing and that was you know. I was twenty two yeah so I didn't view that sexual harassment at the time but looking back on it but isn't it crazy. Higher condition is a young woman working in the industry. Just tolerate so much bullshit was he throwing ice chips down auto right yeah not at all and to the same token to have you ever been in a job where rebe brought it to management where there is an issue in like did that play out any particular way I haven't come forward with a lot of things that I've dealt with in the past test. It's hard it is hard and and it's it's crazy and I recently have been dealing with this personally and like how to have these conversations and talk about it and even from a management perspective. It's like it's got wrenching. It's hard right. You don't know how the manager will react or whether you'll still have a job or the other person whatever that may be but ads. It's tricky tricky subject. Yeah okay so hypothetically you come forward with an issue. The the is a manager who's overseeing this or early mediating the situation. there's a concern that both people will lose their job or just just the female or what's. I think in most women's had they fear that they will lose their job. They will not be believed and they'll be fired because they're or not being believed in the causing drum at work or something at least in my experience. That's been the case I think May and it could be both it could be. I think that may be some people are afraid. Bowl people fired and even when you when you come forward sexual harassment. You aren't necessarily seeking other person to lose her job. You just want them to act correctly clean and behave like a human and not treat. You were talking to you like crap so i. I think it's probably a little bit of both honestly I do. I think it's a fear of losing their job getting another person in trouble bowl and then again like gossip in a restaurant is a nightmare anyways especially when it's a younger staff and that's just gonNa people are GonNa start rumours things like that. It's it's a lot of protecting your own identity and your own reputation by not coming forward most of the time which is sad that we have to even talk about about that in terms of like protect yourself what other people think of you is more important than somebody treating. You crappy yeah being should you. It's a crazy that that's just the norm. You guys have three restaurants right so just someone kind of overseeing the we are yeah. We have a we have an. Hr are woman at our restaurant group and also I think our managers and owners are really really kind and respectful in anything like that is brought forward. It's definitely looked into it's discussed with multiple not just men because we do have like fifty percent men and women managers in our group which is a nice advantage but I do think we you take those things seriously we would you know get ready side of the story. We'd watch videotapes. If we have to figure it out and then there'd be disciplinary action to pace depending on like what actually actually you know the severity of what the situation was but you know we. It's all kind of different but I've been at a job before. Were guys called a server a pitch and gotten fired up are called the Serb fired on my good for you like you can't talk to people like that. Whether you're a woman or not and also been a situations where worked in a place in and a woman has said something nasty to a man she's been fired so it's all about just respect for one another and I think again it happens more often for women than men but I do think it's really important to have these conversations just so people know because sometimes the guy at the bar who's trying to tickle your belly button when appropriate yes though we a yearly jarred by that like how wildly inappropriate he might have gotten away with that before and thought that was okay so in these conversations have to happen for people to know their boundaries to know what is acceptable and what sign it seems so common sense to most of us like you can't do that. Hey you can't say that. It's it's not okay but for I in my experience I'm sure you I feel the same way in lake working in this industry common sense is not so common and I wanNA. I WanNa talk about that. 'cause you know. I've been thinking about this. MELANIA since I reach out to you about the scheduling this and it's been making me on easy to even to to to do this and to have this episode and to part of the reason. Why is I keep going back to the thought when you look at the definition and says a pervasive you're making a environment pervasively uncomfortable right the word pervasive is important because it means that happening more more than once in often if someone tells you know if you do something once right and you know even the let's make it really kind of innocuous someone out right and they say no no okay cool just thought I'd ask C. later right. That's how I imagine a lot of at least in my mind how it would go right but what this definition tells me is that someone comes forward and says something to you and you're like no you know you being you being a woman right no and the guy's like. Oh okay. I'M GONNA ask you a different way and then you say no again on their roundabout ways for the same question right. Where do we learn that. Where's that behavior learned and I honestly like if you were if you were to? Let's let's make this really simple right. So if you you come to my bakery right and you say I wanNA doughnut doughnut. I don't sell donuts. Oh okay what about and then you name another kind of donut. I still don't sell curler right. Yeah crowd right. I still don't sell donuts and no matter how often you asked me for different doughnuts. I'm not gonNA imagine right so I I don't even if if that makes any sense in terms of comparatively the I don't understand you know like I I just don't get it. How do we explain to tie everything back to talk masculinity but I think it starts with the young men in the movies they watch and the way that certain characters portrayed in movies. TV's video games whatever it's like this this macho. I get whatever I want and I see if I want you. I can have you if I want this from you. I will find a way to get it from me whether you say yes or no and it's all in that power struggle and the so delicate especially being on the female side of it how Saint No 'cause sometimes you say no and the reaction is violent. Silence is violence and so you have to kind of tiptoe around a polite way to say no which is another thing that pisses me off to no end so like women are constantly constantly constantly taught how to be nice instead of prioritizing how to feel safe and how to be safe and be protected which is Bullshit Wise Bullshit Nice yeah post by one hit him in the head of the bat but again that's just like the way we are conditioned to to be quiet or not. Be Too loud. You know all Lisa all these little things but I I definitely think it has to do with how men are raised and I think it's it's interesting having this conversation to especially people our age because you have a child child. I don't know if you have any kids. I don't buy would like some one day. I think about that a lot..

"Those messages is now in everyone's kind of like letting go just like Y- lifting it off themselves which is nice yeah. I do feel like It's a small small step to get those messages but also kind of a big deal because they feel comfortable enough with me to share that information I've made post in the past about different hospitality related instances and while they don't feel comfortable publicly posting they feel more comfortable sending messages and then having me spread the word kind of within the community about who they should and shouldn't you know support or be careful. Be careful around yeah so I feel like Since being in the hospitality industry things have gotten better to a certain degree but then you kind of pull in like our local administration and the whole like notion of you can do whatever you want to women so that's kind of perpetuating this toxic masculinity that we're dealing with right now yeah absolutely yeah. Are you referring to like the presidential yeah okay yeah. Yeah that yeah that that whole thing that doesn't helping his rhetoric is not helping women at all if anything is just making them more angry but where he isn't isn't helping women directly. I do feel like it's sparking something and women to become more connected to reach out to another to look out for one another more which may be hasn't really happened in the past in my experience growing up. I mean and I feel like I even come from a place of privilege this a white girl who has whatever she needs in front of her like. I'm not clear or or any of these you know. I'm not a person of color like I'm experiencing. This Natoli different aspect too so it's really interesting to hear your side of this too. I love that but I do think it's really is much as I don't like are present in the way he talks about women. I think it's cool to see that the way that women have reacted to him and they feel strong and powerful for once and feel like no matter what this man says that they're going to find a way to protect other women. I think that's the only positive that comes really tough. Yeah I. I'm so astonished by ninety percent that is such a high number it is I would have guessed seventy for women but ninety that and how many of the still aren't talking my guess is honestly it's probably a hundred percent and this is from from Harvard Business Review Article Article. and there's it's as part of a long. I'll read this quote due to kind of. This'll this'll be the end of my reading for the for the more sexual harassment resume claims the United States are filed in the restaurant industry than any other were as many as ninety percent of women seventy percent of men reportedly experienced some form of sexual harassment there are several factors that make restaurant employees.

"Your food beverage and hospitality podcast tonight. I have to folks works with me. One is going to function essentially as a special co host. She's been a guest of the show before Sagan Item Sagan. Thanks for being with us. We also have local bartenders Melanie Mac Melanie. Thanks for being with us. Thank you the the issue at hand is one that we have not talked about it on on this podcast and I and I don't think it gets enough attention in general given the pervasiveness of it in hospitality industry. We're talking about sexual harassment today now as a white guy privilege white guy. I felt it was probably not my place to lead a discussion on this topic which is why I call on Sagan and this this top the reason we're talking about. This is because of a facebook post and Melanie did about a month ago roughly so the the sexual harassment is pervasive and I'm going to I'm going to start by reading just the act. The true definition of how sexual sexual harassment is viewed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has kind of long bear with me it's unlawful to harass person an applicant or employee because of that that person's sex harassment could include sexual harassment or unwelcome sexual advances requests for sexual favors and other verbal and physical harassment of a sexual nature harassment does not have to be of a sexual nature however and can include offensive remarks about a person's sex for example it is illegal to harass a wound by making offensive comments about the about women in general general both victim and Harasser can be either men women or men and the victim and Harasser can be of the same sex although the law does doesn't prohibit simple teasing offhand comments or isolated incidents that are not very serious. Harassment is illegal when it is so frequent or severe that creates a hostile hostile or offensive work environment or when it results in an adverse employment decision such as the victim being fired or demoted the Harasser can be victims supervisor supervisor provides another area a CO worker or someone who is not an employee of an of an employer such as a client or customer so that's the definition right right. one of the things that I think is important. I think where we should start. Is this idea of a hostile that that this behavior creates a hostile or offensive work environment now. I maybe we should start. have either of you been in a position of working under a hostile all and we're not going. Oh one thing one ground rule for this whole discussion. We're not going to name names or not going to name places okay so if you're listening this is this is for educational purposes. We're not trying to call anybody out. We're just trying to shed light on an issue that needs light. Shed on it absolutely okay so let's talk doc start there with a work environment. I personally have many times from the time I started working on his sixteen until now so what does that mean I think it's advances that are unwelcome and one of my first restaurant jobs I worked in was a little mom and pop place and I had to wear a wedding ring on my finger. I was seventeen and a half eighteen years old just advances from men ha you know more than half my more than twice my age so it's just it's just frustrating so wait the wedding wedding ring on your finger so that was something that was suggested to your something you did on your own something. I did on my own. I did that as well. I was a shot girl at a nightclub in were a fake wedding ring all the time just so nobody would try an approach me or trying to hit on me. Oh sorry I'm taking I wasn't I was young and just wanted to avoid com computation tation with men who wouldn't listen take no for an answer. Unfortunately it didn't work all that I know didn't work very often so so there's this another another quote that I pulled from from an article about restaurant harassment in general and you guys can talk about this as well as one reason. Sexual harassment in this industry is less visible is that low wage workers are often those who experienced the brunt of sexual harassment and restaurants a customer's always right mentality combined with tip based roles that require workers to remain pleasant and compliant can lead to harmful outcomes for some workers avid agree but oh okay all right. I Yup okay. We can agree with that but this customer customer's always right notion when customers being awful. How are they still right. I think it depends on on your management crew that you have some I think in my experience some managers our customer's always right doesn't matter but I've also had managers who take the opposite approach and though the customer may be right they will do everything in their power to protect the staff from any sort of harassment or unwanted things like that so I think for me personally. It's a little a bit of both you. You have those people who are going to say yes. The customers rate doesn't matter and you know kind of let the worker take the brunt of it and I think a good manager would step in alleviate situation. Remove the person from the situation because there's no getting around that you just have to get the person out of your building in my experience. Do you agree. I do so the one of the stats I I also read throughs that ninety percent of women in the industry which uh-huh laughing at that is just so overwhelming and then also seventy percent of men report some level of sexual harassment excellent now. I don't WANNA I I. I'm not trying to say guys. You know you. You get a two. That's not that's not the point of this because I don't think I think that ninety percent is where we should focus because that means only ten percent a mere fraction don't report that and chances are those ten percent have probably been harasser harasser. Just not saying it right. Why is this so. Why is it swept under the rug? What what what else about this industry because it's it's not just the the mentality of the customer's always right because that only is the customer right so there's people were working with. So what's what's the story. There's there's so many Amelia you sir. My experience is a lot different. Go ahead yeah. I think a lot of people misuse their power in restaurants and bars a lot of people that are elevated to those positions may not have a whole lot of experience experience and they might not have worked in a scenario where there is alcohol and sometimes drugs involved so that coupled with the hierarchy of having like a manager verses like an employee. I think that kind of began can become like problematic for a lot of people they don't know how to lake differentiate the two without making advances towards someone link to there's a an maybe. I've thought about this way too much but women have condition from the beginning of time to not speak up into apologize no matter the situation and I think in restaurants specifically because you have this mentality that the customer's always right that women in a role in the industry just may be okay better not say anything upset anybody in. It's better just to let it roll off your back because women are breaking resilient ran. They deal with a lot of shit all the time and don't say anything so I think that part of you know just culture in general bleeding into the restaurant. Industry is probably why more women don't speak up about it. I think that may be a lot of it has to do with toxic masculinity fragile egos. I think a lot of those things kind of our catalyst for these in. It's a lot about a power struggle especially in power. We're talking about like manager to employee kind of harassment. It's all about power struggle. They I wanna make you feel like you need them to have their job their job or some sense of security in that which isn't necessary but it happens more often than not whether it's direct superior or different person in the restaurant that maybe has a position of youth in my experience. It happens quite often yeah and I don't. I wish there was a better reason why but in my mind that's all I could really come up with any time it happens. You know it's a delicate balance. Either your going to just let this one roll off or I'm GonNa make a big deal about Oughta and I'm going to say something but then risk everything you risk losing your job university. Shen Yup people at work being upset with you about it friendships you may have there and and then if it has anything to do with the customer and you know maybe irregular that everyone else laughs off their inappropriate jokes and you're like this is not okay and and you know it's a really really delicate balancing a lot of people. I think in my experience anyways in management positions that don't handle it correctly don't know what to do. There's lack of training in that area. I think in a lot of restaurants could really really benefit from proper. HR training and like how did even mistake from manager to play how to talk to your female employees the correct way Areva mail. You know what I mean. We're not just talking about women but mostly so I think that would help a lot but I think it's just an issue with our society and Culture in general that women can you talk to her. They want I think in the last couple years that's kind of changed. The narratives are changing and people are realizing nation say that or we shouldn't talk about those things thanks but it still happens all the time. Is there some sense that within so you mentioned Mama Place that you worked at to wear a wedding a wedding ring that these small businesses just I think you kind of referred to this like they just don't know what to do in like a lot of small businesses businesses you know at least I know from from a management perspective is like we can't necessarily like. HR training is done by US right. we do our best. We have a handbook and we do stuff like that but like we don't have like a true. HR person leading the charge because it's expensive yeah yeah but even if the person leading the charge is respectful decent human their respects. Everybody knows how to excuse me talk to people. I think that too is just it doesn't have Serbia professional but somebody that is level headed and grounded and understand that this is something that has to be dealt with an every single restaurant in throughout our industry or you know whether it's a bakery restaurant bar doesn't matter it just something that everybody who has employees should take into consideration to really value that your employees are important without your employees. You don't have a business and you don't want to alienate these people or piss off or make them upset so I think that some sort of training I don't know that is is but you know just just and also being aware that it exists because a lot of people don't act like it doesn't exist in a swept under the rug very often yeah and I I think one of the things that really bothers me about this is that the the courage it takes for someone to come forward about an issue like this and then to be because there had to have been something like over the course of time over and over again again happening where now it's swept in the road for a reason right people weren't believed NOT NOT I. I'm not even GonNa try save percentage but the the vast majority of people aren't coming forward just to fuck with someone's life. They're coming forward because there there is a massive distress so how do you how do you even even have the how do you bring up the courage to even use to do this. That's a tough one I don't. I don't know the answer to that question necessarily surly but I think something that I've experienced. in a lot of recent months is women coming forward to me and private messages is and telling me different experiences that they've had they don't feel comfortable coming forward because the repercussions may be losing their job may be their reputation being on tarnished or you know the flip side is that they're not going to be believed so there's kind of this underground movement of women kind of letting other women no of people that they should steer clear of not so important yes so important that women have that kind of network in believe one another and they know that they gain account on other women. That's not to be sexist in any way but when I see a woman manager I have so much more respect and no offense the guy's. I know that manage manage some of them do a really great job but it takes a lot more to be a woman in that role right and to really be able to listen and to help but that network of women so parents are interrupted yeah but yeah I think well and your experience to. I'm curious like when you started working in the hospitality interest industry till now. Do you think it's gotten worse gotten better has era like with the way that society is moving. Now and more women are being believed feeling comfortable coming forward. Are you getting more..
