All quotes about Sexual harassment

Justin Prentice

Like most people, I think it's very normal when you hear about a case of rape or sexual assault to immediately be angry at the person doing the rape, which of course I still am. And it's an important thing. But I think it gave me deeper insight into what's wrong and why these things are happening – having to force myself to get into the mind of these people and how they're capable of doing what they do.feedback

Justin Prentice

I did a lot of research. I had a psychiatrist and a sexual assault expert on speed dial. It's a lack of education. These people, one, they may have a sense of arrogance in that they can get away with whatever they want to due to the sports or money or power or what have you. But then on top of that, they're not properly educated on what consent is and what sex should look like and what a healthy relationship should look like.feedback

Veronique Valliere

We have expectations that are misguided about how people respond to traumatic events, especially sexual assault. Much of that comes from the fact we misunderstand what sexual assault is. Most of us have this expectation most rapes are violent, involve strangers etc. Most times it's not violent. It's perpetrated by somebody you know and trust. Victims are confused by what happened to them and they don't necessarily want to go through this process, and they don't want to go to law enforcement.feedback

Anne Molyneux

You have saved lives, you have done work others were not willing to do, you have shown commitment to the NHS, you have given time to work for charity. This was a sexual assault. What the incident demonstrates is your sense of entitlement and your instinct to rely on your power to do as you pleased.feedback

Amit Jain

Sexual assault is a terrible crime and we're pleased he has now been brought to justice. Safety is a priority for Uber and we've made many improvements - in terms of new technology, enhanced background checks and better 24/7 customer support - as a result of the lessons we learned from this awful case.feedback

Arianna Huffington - The Huffington Post

I never said there wasn't a systemic cultural problem; I was talking specifically about sexual harassment. It all depends on your definition of 'systemic.feedback

Joelle Emerson - Uber

To survivors everywhere, including to Uber's own employees, it communicates a belief that women lie about sexual assault. To seek to discredit a survivor by reviewing her confidential medical records is not only a stunning violation of privacy; it reinforces all of the sexist and misogynistic beliefs about sexual assault. It's the definition of rape culture.feedback

Svetlana Feoktistova

Men allow themselves to use insulting expressions, engage in sexual harassment, and make dirty jokes, thinking that it is normal and that if a woman is offended, she lacks a sense of humor. There is a male primacy in work issues.feedback

Brian McMonagle

Sexual assault is a terrible crime. The only thing that is worse than that is the false accusation of sexual assault. A false accusation can destroy a life. We are talking about somebody's 'tomorrows.feedback

Carol Siemon

I have decided to authorize sexual assault charges against the three persons whose warrants were requested by the MSU Police. We are alleging that on the night of January 16, those three persons sexually assaulted a woman in an East Lansing apartment on campus. (We) wanted to make sure were took the time to make the right decision.feedback

Charles Perry

It is a bad day for Texas when officials sworn to enforce the law, want to help people who commit manslaughter and sexual assault evade federal immigration detainers. It is also important to understand that Senate Bill 4, for the first time in state law, protects immigrants who are witnesses and victims of crimes.feedback

James Dunlap

The M.S.U. Police Department has zero tolerance for sexual assault. I'm confident that this extensive investigation was completed thoroughly, and our detectives worked diligently and exhaustively in providing information to the prosecutor's office.feedback

Frances Frei

Sexual harassment creeps in and it never creeps out. It is an organizational manifestation we have, and we just can't have, even if there is just one ... the best organizations are ones built for women to thrive. We need to take repeated action, and I don't think words can fix that other than continued observation of good behavior. It is going to take a while for everyone to believe – some believe on faith, some on evidence.feedback

Brian McMonagle

Sexual assault is a terrible crime, it takes away dignity. A false accusation can ruin a life. Don't leave your common sense behind.feedback

Victoria Valentino

I have a black girlfriend who won't speak to me because I ruined the legacy of this great, black man, but we have opened up the conversation about rape and sexual assault ... This is my legacy.feedback

Billy Bush

It hurt a lot, and I fell apart. But I didn't have the strength of character to do it. When he said what he said, I'd like to think if I had thought for a minute that there was a grown man detailing his sexual assault strategy to me, I'd have called the FBI.feedback

Billy Bush

I'm in a lot of locker rooms, I am an athlete, and no, that is not the type of conversation that goes on or that I've participated in. I felt that, in that moment, he was being typically Donald, which is performing and shocking. Almost like Andrew Dice Clay, the stand-up comedian: Does he really do the things that he's saying or is that his act? And in Donald's case, I equated it that way. When he said what he said, I'd like to think if I had thought for a minute that there was a grown man detailing his sexual assault strategy to me, I'd have called the FBI.feedback

Billy Bush

Whatever you want. But he's a provocateur. Shocking statements flow like wine from him. And he likes to captivate an audience. Almost like Andrew Dice Clay, the stand-up comedian: Does he really do the things that he's saying or is that his act? And in Donald's case, I equated it that way. When he said what he said, I'd like to think if I had thought for a minute that there was a grown man detailing his sexual assault strategy to me, I'd have called the FBI.feedback

Terry O'Neill

Any network that hires him, what they're doing is sending a message to women: 'We don't care about sexual harassment.'.feedback

Carmen Perez

Labour rights are women's rights. The link between the gender justice and labour justice movements is strong -- but often unacknowledged. Women's March is proud to join others to rise up against unfair labour practices, economic exploitation and workplace sexual harassment. These fights are our fights, and the only way we win is together.feedback

Deborah Tuerkheimer

It is a terrible thing to have to go through. Being the witness in any case is grueling, but in a sexual assault case, being subject to cross-examination is often so daunting that it's the reason many do not come forward.feedback

Lisa Bloom

This is a company that over and over again, when no one was watching them, made choices against women's rights. They made choices to stand with the perpetrators of sexual harassment. This is a company that has flouted the law when it comes to women's rights in the workplace, and I think there should be consequences for that. It's important to teach this company a lesson that other companies will then see.feedback

Rachael Denhollander

It felt very uncomfortable, very humiliating and very degrading. But my presumption was this was what I needed to do to get better. I feel like I have relived my abuse with an audience. No sexual assault victim wants attention drawn to the parts of their body they want to hide forever. My trust had been used against me as a weapon, and I never wanted to trust again. He would position himself in between my mom and I, so I could not see where his hands were.feedback

Kathleen M. Dumais

There is a much stronger awareness of the victims of sexual assault and a better sensitivity to the issue overall. It's happening nationally and I'm glad to see it happening in Maryland.feedback

Lisae C. Jordan

Advocates "made substantial progress for sexual assault survivors. This year, many said 'that absolutely should be law.' . That doesn't mean that you shouldn't have women on a conference committee discussing rape and pregnancy.feedback

Rachel Easter

It's just devastating for women. They suffer more from chronic asthma and arthritis, for example, which are pre-existing conditions. And one of the most egregious situations would be the undermining of protections for people who are survivors of domestic violence or sexual assault. There were really horrific stories about this happening before the Affordable Care Act – it could be the provision of preventive HIV medicine after a sexual assault or receiving counseling for trauma related to that. People are really scared for their health and their economic security.feedback

Brian Cliffe

We are disturbed to learn this troubling information. We began covering Tom's disappearance in early April. During today's Oxford County Sheriff's Office's news conference, we learned for the first time with everyone else that Tom would have been charged in a Class B gross sexual assault that happened on April 1, if he was still alive.feedback

Wayne Gallant

Our investigation shows that Johnston was at the residence and was identified during the commission of the sexual assault. Johnston left the residence before deputies arrived on scene and was later reported as a missing person. People confronted [Johnston] in the residence, in that room.feedback

Carly Mee

Surviving sexual assault is already expensive. Now it could be even worse.feedback

Kristin Smith-Shrimplin

We expect businesses in our great city, and this includes sports teams, to place a high value on speaking out against both domestic violence and sexual assault.feedback

Joe Biden

We gotta change the way we think about [sexual assault]. I'm convinced the vast majority of men understand and it's about time we speak up and we intervene when we see it.feedback

Lisa Bloom

Jesse Watters' on air sexual harassment of Ivanka Trump is a vivid reminder of Fox News' smirking culture of hypersexualizing and demeaning women. Perhaps Mr. Watters, vacation' should end the way Bill O'Reilly's did.feedback

Alisyn Camerota

Roger Ailes did sexually harass me. There is a visceral reaction that you have where you recognize, My career and everything that I have worked for is under threat. It was no longer sexual harassment. It was harassment of a different variety … It was sort of emotional harassment. Sometimes, he would lecture me. Sometimes, he would insult me.feedback

Lena Dunham

I'm in the very privileged position to be able to say whatever the fuck I want most of the time, but when you work in a corporate infrastructure, the challenge of coming out about sexual harassment is so massive. And to see a woman who surmounted that and bravely made space for other women to do the same is deeply inspired.feedback

Mairead O'Grady

The issue of sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace will not be resolved until we have a diverse work force – at all levels of the corporate world. There is little hope that claims of mistreatment will be handled fairly with the astonishing imbalance of power between men and women at work. When you know that reporting an issue puts your career at risk, exposes you to possible retaliatory actions, and potentially could sideline you at that organization you think twice about whether it's worth it.feedback

Maggie Chao

There's a mountain of evidence that the Murdochs are not fit or proper to own Sky. The recent allegations of sexual harassment at Fox News in the US are just another reason to doubt whether the Murdochs can be trusted to control even more of the UK's media. Hundreds of thousands of people in the UK already don't think they should be trusted. If Ofcom's alarm bells weren't ringing already, they certainly should be now.feedback

Anthony DiClemente

I think a lot of numbers are being overreported in terms of what the ad revenue is from O'Reilly's show. If the platform continues to be powerful, they will be able to develop other personalities that hopefully don't have sexual harassment issues. I think it is more like the platform being the kind of engine that drives the creation of that personality.feedback

Eugene Volokh

Last year, the New York Daily News published an article called “Conn. woman sues drug store in sexual harassment case” (which has since been slightly renamed). Eric Lerner, one of the bosses accused by the woman (Jessica Pelletier), then sued Pelletier for defamation, in a complaint filed last Tuesday. And the same day, he got an order, signed by Justice John Galasso, requiring (among other things) that.feedback

Bonny Forrest

I heard the allegation from her in September, and what she related to me was very different from what's in the press now. I take sexual harassment and racial discrimination very seriously. But I also believe in this instance there are some statements made in press that aren't consistent with my experience.feedback

Lisa Bloom

Life is not black or white. Wendy does not contend that every action he took was retaliation. . . . She [was] trying to stay very friendly with him to salvage that chance for the job. She wanted him to see her as nonthreatening. She wanted him to be professional and get over it. She was scared. But she knew that we can never change the epidemic of sexual harassment unless we speak out.feedback

Gretchen Carlson

It's so heartwarming and unbelievably sad, because it's so pervasive. It's so unbelievable that in 2017, almost every single woman has a story about sexual harassment.feedback

Catherine Asta Labbett

From my experience, working with women in my clinic, shame is undoubtedly the biggest factor. They don't want to be seen as a victim, and would rather be labeled depressed or anxious than a victim of sexual assault.feedback

Gil Kerlikowske

If they were safer, and have opportunities, and their economies were better you wouldn't have people from those countries subjected to the environment, smugglers, robberies, sexual assault, et cetera. So there are things that could be done, but it just doesn't get as much attention as the big wall.feedback

Libby Locke

We're happy that the case is settled now. It allows Nicole to move on and really focus on what she does best, which is help victims of sexual assault. i think she's thrilled to have this behind her.feedback

Erik Wemple

Maybe Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is desperate these days for comic relief, considering that his show is weathering a significant pullout of advertisers following revelations that he and his employer had reached settlements with five former female employees claiming sexual harassment or mistreatment. Whatever the explanation, please play the video above to hear the King of Cable News laughing as he finishes watching that terrible video of a man being manhandled and dragged off of a Chicago-to-Louisville United Express flight. “I shouldn’t be laughing, but it’s just so bizarre,” says O’Reilly.feedback

John Oliver

Bill O'Reilly needs advertisers and Donald Trump needs to understand sexual harassment. And here is where we come in. We have produced an ad to educate Donald Trump to air during The O'Reilly Factor in New York and D.C. We submitted it to stations on Friday, but weirdly, we haven't heard back from them since. Which is a little surprising, because we are one of the only advertisers offering to buy time on his show at the moment. And I do hope they don't reject this ad.feedback

David Schwimmer

Many people elected the president in spite of that. I don't think most people are excited that he was boasting of committing sexual assault. I think that was a flaw but they overlooked it. For me, personally, that's not something I can really condone in terms of character of a leader that I would like. That is something that is hard to explain to my daughter.feedback

Lisa Bloom

Walsh and I officially called in her sexual harassment complaint against O'Reilly to Fox News hotline. Fox News and O'Reilly have said no one has complained about him on their complaint line. That is no longer true. We have the proof. I'm told that they are taking it seriously, and they are going to do the investigation that's legally required of them.feedback

David Schwimmer

It shows the complicit nature of all of the bystanders, the culture of sexual harassment that we continue to allow.feedback

Maxine Waters

They're taking a look at them because this really is a sexual harassment enterprise. It shouldn't be in America that you can sexually harass women and then buy your way out of it because you're rich. If they continue to do this in the way that they have done, they need to go to jail. It's coming out of the mouth of a man who has said some horrible things about women. Don't forget he talked about grabbing women in their private parts, and because he was important he could get away with it. And so they are two of a kind.feedback

Sigal Avin

I wrote the first script, which was something that happened to me around 18 years ago that I didn't even realize was sexual harassment. I was wondering what does sexual harassment even mean?feedback

Erik Wemple

Today Donald Trump, president of the United States, came to the defense of Bill O’Reilly, host of the cable-news-leading “O’Reilly Factor.” The King of Cable News finds his long career in danger of ending sourly after the New York Times outed him as a serial generator of complaints from female co-workers — mostly for sexual harassment. In an interview, Trump gave O’Reilly a clean bill of health on this front, saying, “I don’t think Bill did anything wrong.” That remark came in a recently published interview with the New York Times.feedback

Erik Wemple

Ever since the New York Times reported a series of sexual harassment settlements surrounding his workplace behavior, Bill O’Reilly has attempted to ride out the crisis through minimal acknowledgement. Sure, he issued a statement implausibly blaming the settlements — five of them, for sexual harassment and simple abuse — on his status as a big, fat target for complaints. On his program on Monday and Tuesday nights, however, the King of Cable News refrained from addressing the matter, an omission suggesting that O’Reilly has no good defense.feedback

Don Lemon - CNN

False. I did not refuse to cover the story. But I did cover your sexual harassment allegations. Did you? On this program tonight, we will not insult your intelligence by pretending otherwise. Nor will we aid and abet the people who are trying to misinform you, the American people. By creating a diversion. Not going to do it.feedback

Aaron Sanandres

As a company in which more than two-thirds of our employees are women, we take sexual harassment claims very seriously. . . . In light of the disturbing allegations, we instructed our media buyer this morning to reallocate our ad dollars to other shows effective immediately.feedback

Spencer Crum

She came … stumbling up to us and told us she'd been [the] victim of sexual assault by this man.feedback

Erik Wemple

As Fox News last year was plowing through the sexual harassment scandal involving now-former network chief Roger Ailes, King of Cable News Bill O’Reilly couldn’t have been more dismissive of the victims. “In this country, every famous, powerful or wealthy person is a target. You’re a target, ” O’Reilly said in a July appearance on “Late Night” with Seth Meyers. “I’m a target. Anytime somebody could come out and sue us, attack us, go to the press or anything like that. … I stand behind Roger 100 percent.”.feedback

Anthony Guglielmi

Tonight, CPD (Chicago Police Department) arrested the first of several juvenile offenders in the Facebook sexual assault incident.feedback

Anthony Guglielmi

Tonight, CPD arrested 1st of several juvenile offenders in Facebook sexual assault incident. Additional arrests are expected as the investigation continues.feedback

Kate Walsh

Like with this show, unfortunately, we wait for terrible things to happen to get framework and education on how to prevent this stuff from happening. It's up to us to educate ourselves, police ourselves and to put limitations on ourselves. For me, that's sort of the lesson these days, not only educating, but having conversations about what it's like to be LGBTQ these days or talking about sexuality very honestly to prevent sexual assault.feedback

Fay Weldon

By going out to work they halved the male wage, so a male wage no longer supported a family. So women had to go out to work to support the family. So for two in three women it really was a problem. The advent of the nursery has been awful. Because it's so convenient, because you don't have the responsibility of bringing up your own child. You put its care, its information, its understanding into the hands of someone else. In my youth, what is now seen as sexual harassment was seen as welcome attention.feedback

Gabe Rivera

Say there's a story about sexual harassment in a company. To what extent do we cover this? If we cover every tiny iteration of the scandal, do people think we are championing this as an issue too much? Is Techmeme turning into an advocacy platform for this issue?feedback

Charlie Beck - Los Angeles Police Department

Imagine your sister, your mother, not reporting a sexual assault for fear that their family will be torn apart. In L.A. we don't care what color your skin is, where your parents come from or what language you speak. We are your police department.feedback

Charlie Beck - Los Angeles Police Department

Imagine, a young woman, imagine your daughter, your sister, your mother … not reporting a sexual assault, because they are afraid that their family will be torn apart.feedback

Jeff Jones - Uber

It is now clear … that the beliefs and approach to leadership that have guided my career are inconsistent with what I saw and experienced at Uber. There are thousands of amazing people at the company and I truly wish everyone well. Last month, former Uber employee Susan Fowler Rigetti published a blog post describing systemic sexism and sexual harassment in the workplace. The viral post prompted Uber to launch an independent investigation, led by former U.S. Attorney Gen. Eric Holder, reports NPR's Emma Bowman.feedback

Mark Dinan

There was a lot of crazy behaviour in the late 1990s, including sexual harassment. It's a result of there not being discipline.feedback

Lisa Bloom

Ms. Barton does not consent to any disclosure of any such images. She believes that she was recorded without her consent by someone she was seeing at the time. There's a name for this disgusting conduct: Revenge pornography. Revenge pornography is a form of sexual assault, and it is also a crime and a civil wrong in California. And we still not stand for it. I have a message for anyone who attempts to traffic in these photos or videos of Ms. Barton; we will find you, and we will come after you. We will fully prosecute you under every available criminal and civil law.feedback

Lisa Bloom

There's a name for this disgusting conduct: revenge pornography. Revenge pornography is a form of sexual assault, and it is also a crime and a civil wrong in California. And we will not stand for it. I've been doing women's right cases for 30 years, and what I see over and over again is women who are very scared, but when they stand up on their own two feet and they say, No, I'm not going to stand for this, I'm going to fight back,' it's very empowering. I think this is a very healthy step that Mischa step is taking.feedback

Paul Waldman

On the same day that Paul Ryan was on his heels from the Congressional Budget Office’s brutal assessment of the Republican health care plan, Breitbart.com launched a missile at the Speaker of the House. Under the headline “Audio Emerges of When Paul Ryan Abandoned Donald Trump, ” the site released a tape of Ryan on a conference call with other Republican members of Congress, recorded just after the release of the video of Trump bragging about sexual assault.feedback

Shaunna Thomas

What happened in that video was sexual assault, period, full stop. The evidence for it is, he pulled down her shirt, exposed her breasts, and she slapped him away. She clearly didn't want him to be doing it, she didn't give him permission to do that. Ezekiel Elliott needs to be suspended. … Roger Goodell is in a position – yet again – to demonstrate that they do take seriously.feedback

Erik Wemple

As noted in this space last month, a lawyer representing a former Fox News host said in a court proceeding that he’d received a subpoena in connection with a federal investigation of the network. That subpoena, said attorney Judd Burstein, was related to the sexual harassment scandal surrounding ousted Fox News chief Roger Ailes (Ailes has denied the sexual harassment claims). Burstein deduced that the authorities were “investigating whether Fox News violated securities laws by not reporting settlements to the Securities and Exchange Commission, ” he said in a hearing at the New York State Supreme Court.feedback

Erika Butner

This scandal has never been a new incident within the military, but I am glad it is finally getting the recognition it deserves. As a rape survivor, I can tell you that this exact behavior of sexualizing and objectifying women is why so much sexual harassment runs unchecked in the Corps. It's become so normalized in the military that women just have to deal with it alone.feedback

Robin Camp

Sexual assault and gender-based violence is in no form acceptable and we will continue to stand up for victims.feedback

Jenny Andrus

It's been a long journey, but I'm ready to finally talk about it and I'm so pleased to work with NO MORE to make sure domestic violence and sexual assault are topics being talked about. Their goal in raising awareness is motivating for me.feedback

Todd Stitzer - Sterling Jewelers

The portrait of Signet painted in recent media reports is irreconcilable to me with a company that I have served as director and chairman for more than five years. We have taken seriously the allegations of sexual harassment prepared in connection with the pending arbitration matter, many of which go back decades. This is the portrayal of Signet which our board and management team and our valued team members recognize at their own. Not the purported parallel universe represented by others.feedback

Tiffany Lloyd

H.B. 2 not only negatively impacted LGBTQ+ people, It also took away labor protections, recourse for sexual harassment protections and negatively impacted the disabled.feedback

Nadiah Mohajir

There's an extreme level of shame and stigma with respect to sexual assault in the Muslim community. The need for the community to uphold positive and praiseworthy qualities like modest and privacy–they conflate that with feelings of shame.feedback

Ann Olivarius

Sexual harassment of students by staff members has reached epidemic levels in British universities. Young women are often terrified about the consequences if they make a complaint about a staff member. So often when they do the university's chief concern is to downplay any wrongdoing and protect its own reputation by keeping the whole thing quiet. The penalty for violating the no-contact rule should be swift termination with a public statement and a mandated report to a central UK registry.feedback

Rachel Krys

There is no obligation on universities to record or report these issues, which means there will be many cases which just fall below the radar of this sort of inquiry. We know that institutions which take tackling sexual harassment and violence seriously, and have policies and systems in place to encourage reporting and train staff to deal with complaints as they arise, report higher numbers. It's the universities which aren't dealing with this openly which perversely appear to have fewer problems.feedback

Anna Bull

There is evidence to suggest that the actual figures in the UK will be staggering. The Association of American Universities undertook a detailed survey of sexual assault and sexual misconduct in 2015 (student-student and staff-student). Surveys were completed on 27 campuses, with 150,072 students responding. The survey found reporting rates for sexual harassment – staff and student – [were] 7.7%, and only 28% of even the most serious incidents are reported to an organisation or agency.feedback

Stephen Marshall

There is no place for sexual harassment or gender-based violence at UAL. We are already working hard to improve how we handle and prevent incidents of harassment.feedback

John Dilworth - Crown Prosecution Service

I would like to praise the bravery of the victims in this case. It is thanks largely to their evidence that the court has today found Colin Gregg guilty of nine charges of non-recent sexual assault, charges for which he had evaded justice for a considerable number of years.feedback

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Lt. Gen. McMaster has served alongside women, and benefited from their bravery and dedication, his entire career. As a commander he has been a leader in sexual assault prevention in each of his commands. To suggest otherwise is to unfairly impugn the character and integrity of a true American hero.feedback

Don Christensen

He shouldn't be thinking, Well, I don't want to hurt their careers. If you have two guys under investigation for sexual assault, but your first concern is that their career might be hurt, that says to me that you're not really getting the big picture.feedback

Satish Kolluri

The conversation around sexual assault changed after the New Delhi incident. Now, more people are talking about their experiences in more ways. In one sense, it has done good. Police are forced to take action.feedback

Patrick Leahy

If we are to continue being a great nation, then survivors of sexual assault and hate crimes and religious bigotry all deserve to know that their civil and human rights will be protected by the attorney general of the United States. Given the divisive rhetoric of the Republican nominee for president last year, many are worried.feedback

Jeff Sessions

I don't characterize that as sexual assault. I think that's a stretch. I don't know what he meant. I would never intentionally suggest otherwise.feedback

Snehal Velkar

In our gender awareness work, one of the issues that's been raised repeatedly by young women are being harassed by men singing inappropriate Bollywood songs. Bollywood songs are great to sing and dance to, but when you pay attention, you realize that many of them objectify and demean women. This leads to normalizing sexual harassment and violence against women.feedback

Kevin Steele

This is a lifetime of sexual assault on young women. We ask the court to look at the remarkable similarities [between the different accusations]. That is an essential element to all of this. You have a situation in each case where it's a young woman. He is significantly older. He is married at the time. All but one of the women met the defendant through her employment. He acted as a mentor.feedback

Jason Chaffetz

Numerous Department of Agriculture employees who were subject to sexual assault, harassment and discrimination also came forward to the committee. The number of examples and despicable acts were quite horrifying. Some of these women had even been raped by coworkers, but refused to testify due to the threat of retaliation and having their careers destroyed.feedback

Catherine Cochran

USDA, including the U.S. Forest Service, has a zero tolerance policy for sexual harassment in the workforce. We take all complaints seriously and take assertive measures ... up to terminating employees when wrongdoing is confirmed.feedback

John Clune

We commend Baylor for its work with Pepper Hamilton in its effort to improve its handling of sexual assault reports.feedback

Brian McKeen

This doctor used this young girl's innocence and naiveté against her. She trusted her doctor's authority when he insisted his treatments were standard procedure, but they were no more than sexual assault and abuse of a child.feedback

Sharon Stone

It is an outrageous situation – her situation and this situation and this culture – that someone, anyone, can say that they are a sexual assault perpetrator and continue on with their life as though it has not happened.feedback

Maggie Haberman

The last day of the workweek has often proved meddlesome for both Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton. Key moments in the F.B.I.'s email investigation landed on Fridays; and a 2005 audio recording of Mr. Trump bragging about sexual assault was also revealed on a Friday. The week could end quietly, or it could close with yet another in a series of wave-making afternoons.feedback

Arlan Hamilton

By lending his image, his voice, his influence and substantial capital to Trump, Thiel isn't simply exercising his legal right to vote: He is fueling and enabling racism, sexism, sexual assault, violence and tyranny.feedback

Moira Smith - Enstar Group

As the mother of a young daughter and son, I am coming forward to show that it is important to stand up for yourself and tell the truth. When powerful men commit sexual assault, they count on their victims keeping it a secret.feedback

Scott Berkowitz - Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network

We often see cases of when a prominent teacher, doctor or other community figure is accused of sexual assault, news of that will often prompt others to come forward. They feel they are now more likely to be believed.feedback

Charlie Dougherty - Lincoln

He recently got out of my jail. He was accused of child sexual assault. We were doing an investigation, we arrested him. That is supposedly what set him off but we don't know that for sure yet.feedback

Marco Arment

We have so many diversity and hostility problems (that the industry isfinally working to fix) that Y Combinator should be leading the way toward inclusive, progressive solutions. Instead, they're defending the large-scale support of racism, bigotry and sexual assault by an influential partner and adviser to their start-ups as its own form of 'diversity.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

We can't create a culture that says it cares about diversity and then excludes almost half of the country because they back a political candidate. Do not involve racism, sexism, xenophobia or accepting sexual assault.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

I want to quickly address the questions and concerns about Peter Thiel as a board member and Trump supporter. We can't create a culture that says it cares about diversity and then excludes almost half of the country because they back a political candidate. There are many reasons a person might support Trump that do not involve racism, sexism, xenophobia or accepting sexual assault. ... Our community will be stronger for all our differences.feedback

Rebecca O'Connor - Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network

People are starting to recognize that even if they didn't fit whatever mythological circumstance people think needs to happen in order for it to be rape or sexual assault, that there is in fact that gray area where it's still nonconsensual. Even if you wore a skirt or you didn't outwardly force someone off you, this may legally fall into the realm of sexual assault.feedback

Kristin Anderson - Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

It's a sexual assault issue, and it's something that I've kept quiet on my own. And I've always kept quiet. And why should I keep quiet? Actually, all of the women should speak up, and if you're touched inappropriately, tell somebody and speak up about it. Actually go to the authorities and press some charges. It's not okay.feedback

Jason Miller

This entire article is fiction, and for the New York Times to launch a completely false, coordinated character assassination against Mr. Trump on a topic like this is dangerous. To reach back decades in an attempt to smear Mr. Trump trivializes sexual assault, and it sets a new low for where the media is willing to go in its efforts to determine this election.feedback

Tim Kaine

You can't grab people's genitals. You know, that's sexual assault, I mean it's clear.feedback

Viola Davis

You must. And then let your heart do the rest. Myself, my mother, my sisters, my friend Rebecca, my friend from childhood, we all have one thing in common: We are all survivors of sexual assault in some way, shape or form.feedback

Leo Dobbs

This is a very sad milestone. Most of those fleeing South Sudan are women and children. They include survivors of violent attacks, sexual assault, children that have been separated from their parents or travelled alone, the disabled, the elderly and people in need of urgent medical care.feedback

Delaney Robinson

I reported it. I allowed the rape kit to be taken. I gave a statement. I cooperated with law enforcement and the Title IX office [which handles complaints of discrimination, including gender and sexual assault]. But six months later, the university has done nothing.feedback

Michelle Dauber

We need judges who understand sexual assault and violence against women.feedback

Alice Hood

The numbers are shocking and it should be a wake up-call. Sexual harassment is still a really big problem for women in the workplace. It's certainly not gone away.feedback

Christophe Dagues

For us, the line is very clear between what is seduction and what is sexual harassment. And there can't be any confusion for the harasser between seduction and sexual harassment. You can invite an employee to have a coffee after work. Or tell her you find her pretty and that you're attracted to her. But the moment where she shows you she is not interested, stop.feedback

Valerie Zabriskie - Euronews

How do you define sexual harassment at work? And where do you draw the line between seduction and harassment? Is it a hand on the knee or on the leg? Or a text message saying you look nice in that dress you're wearing? And why is it so hard to prove?feedback

Maude Beckers

Here we have direct proof of sexual harassment. It generally takes place behind closed doors so we rarely have direct proof. Today our goal is to have it recognised, that it's not unfair if a victim records her harasser, because this harassment is a crime.feedback

Marilyn Baldeck

Victims are often accused themselves when they go before a tribunal. This woman here is accused of being a manipulator, wanting to take her boss' job. She's also accused of not showing any emotion, so therefore she's not credible – since a victim of sexual harassment is supposed to cry non-stop.feedback

Beth Fortune - Vanderbilt

It is our sincere hope that today's verdict strongly sends the message to victims and to perpetrators that sexual assault will not be tolerated in our communities.feedback

John Silvanus Wilson Jr.

Sexual assault is a heinous form of violence and it is a stark contradiction to Morehouse College at its best. The information anonymously shared on Twitter was our very first indication of this incident. Now that we are aware of these allegations, we are determined to pursue the investigation to the fullest extent possible.feedback

Tippi Hedren

It was the early 1960s. Sexual harassment and stalking were terms that didn't exist back then.feedback
