Модель Кэмерон Расселл запустила в Сети новый флешмоб против насилия и домогательств — #MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse ("Моя работа не должна предусматривать насилие"), — который в первую очередь важен для мира моды. Своей историей можно поделиться с помощью публичного поста либо же написать Расселл в личные сообщения. Сама модель говорит, что собрала уже более сотни историй, и ее поддержали другие коллеги по цеху: Эмбер Валлетта, Лили Олдридж, Аня Рубик, Эди Кэмпбелл и другие.
TRIGGER WARNING ⚠️ A brave model (and friend) reached out to me with her story today. She has asked to remain anonymous but asked that I share her words here because the photographer still works in the industry. She wants to encourage other women to speak up. We need a way to begin breaking the silence while remaining protected. We are not talking about one, five, or even twenty men. We are talking about a culture of exploitation and it must stop. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE YOUR STORY ANONYMOUSLY, DIRECT MESSAGE ME and I will post your words. If you would like to share publicly use the hashtag #MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse so the industry can see the size and scope of this problem. Hearing about #harveyweinstein this week has sparked conversations about how widespread and how familiar his behavior is. We talked about how hard it is to share stories of assault. When they are the norm, calling them out can feel disruptive and unprofessional. On many occasions I've been called a feminist for reporting unwanted groping, spanking, pinching, pressure for dates, phone calls and texts of a sexual nature, lack of appropriate changing areas, etc. And because the response has always been "are you surprised?" or "that's part of the job" I tolerated them. When the offenses were bigger, calling them out is terrifying, and demands a level of exposure and backlash to what is already painful and sometimes shameful. #MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse
Cameron Russell asked me to help her share anonymous stories of sexual harassement . She has received hundreds and needs help in sharing these girls words. I have been very lucky and through out my entire career have not experienced any sexual harassement however I have heard many stories. Very proud of these girls for coming out and sharing. Together we can show solidarity and continue to provide a healing and powerful space where people's voices can be heard. @cameronrussell Trigger warning ⚠️ #MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse
Trigger warning. ⚠️ I am joining @cameronrussell in sharing anonymous stories from people who have experienced sexual harassment in the fashion industry because #MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse. She received tons of them and can’t post them all herself, I stand in solidarity with the hundreds of brave voices breaking the silence.
