#MiTrabajoNoDebeIncluirAbuso: ¿por qué la sororidad ( y las denuncias) contra Weinstein llegan tan tarde?
"Si Harvey Weinstein te invita a una fiesta privada, no vayas". Esta fue la advertencia pública que, en 2005, Courtney Love dio a las recién llegadas a Hollywood. Doce años y ni una sola reacción. Mientras tanto, Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cara Delevingne y otras 20 actrices han contado que han sido víctimas de los abusos del que, hasta hace unos días, era el productor más poderoso de la industria del cine. Penélope Cruz no conocía esa faceta pero se solidariza con las mujeres. ¿Por qué se ha sabido y hablado todo tan tarde? ¿Por qué tanto silencio?
When I first started to work as an actress, i was working on a film and I received a call from Harvey Weinstein asking if I had slept with any of the women I was seen out with in the media. It was a very odd and uncomfortable call....i answered none of his questions and hurried off the phone but before I hung up, he said to me that If I was gay or decided to be with a woman especially in public that I'd never get the role of a straight woman or make it as an actress in Hollywood. A year or two later, I went to a meeting with him in the lobby of a hotel with a director about an upcoming film. The director left the meeting and Harvey asked me to stay and chat with him. As soon as we were alone he began to brag about all the actresses he had slept with and how he had made their careers and spoke about other inappropriate things of a sexual nature. He then invited me to his room. I quickly declined and asked his assistant if my car was outside. She said it wasn't and wouldn't be for a bit and I should go to his room. At that moment I felt very powerless and scared but didn't want to act that way hoping that I was wrong about the situation. When I arrived I was relieved to find another woman in his room and thought immediately I was safe. He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction. I swiftly got up and asked him if he knew that I could sing. And I began to sing....i thought it would make the situation better....more professional....like an audition....i was so nervous. After singing I said again that I had to leave. He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips. I stopped him and managed to get out of the room. I still got the part for the film and always thought that he gave it to me because of what happened. Since then I felt awful that I did the movie. I felt like I didn't deserve the part. I was so hesitant about speaking out....I didn't want to hurt his family. I felt guilty as if I did something wrong. I was also terrified that this sort of thing had happened to so many women I know but no one had said anything because of fear.

A few years ago I was shooting with another model at a client's corporate headquarters. In the staff kitchen on the required labor law posters, we read the definition of sexual harassment. "This sounds like our job description," I said. We laughed and went back to work. When I got home and looked up the definition online, it was so spot on it felt like someone who knew us...and of course they did. Sexual harassment is unacceptably commonplace. I sat down to try to make a list of my own experiences. Non consensual kisses, spanks, gropes, and pinches. Failing to provide adequate changing space, shaming in response to requests for adequate changing space. Bullying by editors, photographers, stylists, and clients to go topless or nude. Publishing nudity after contractually agreeing not to. Non consensual massage. Inappropriate emails, text messages, and phone calls. Pressure while underage to consume alcohol. Being directed to "pretend like I'm your boyfriend." Being forced to sleep at the photographer's home rather than provided a hotel. Having my job threatened if I don't participate. Being called difficult, feminist, virgin, diva when speaking up or saying no. Being unclear about boundaries because so many boundaries have been crossed. I loose count. And this is only what's easy to share, what's as commonplace as 9am call times, fittings, and lunch. #myjobshouldnotincludeabuse
