“While I have been fortunate to never experience sexual abuse in the workplace, I have seen it first-hand. A few years ago, I reported inappropriate behavior by an agent who was twice the age of a 16-year-model I worked with. He sent her suggestive photos of himself after showering, pressed for the same in return, and persuaded her to take a trip with him. He was supposed to be her advisor, a mentor, someone she thought she could trust. Instead, he leveraged his power and took advantage of a young and naive girl who didn't know how to say no for fear of losing her representation.”
