Oct. 19, 2017 California Politics And Harassment

On Oct. 19, 2017 NPR’s Marisa Lago and Scott Shafer reported ” ‘Enough’: California’s Women In Politics Call Out Sexual Harassment.” Lobbyist Samantha Corbin open letter said “Often these men hold our professional fates in their hands. They are bosses, gatekeepers, and contacts. Our relationships with them are crucial to our personal success,” they wrote. “We don’t want to jeopardize our future, make waves, or be labeled ‘crazy,’ ‘troublemaker,’ or ‘asking for it.’ Worse, we’re afraid when we speak up that no one will believe us, or we will be blacklisted.”
