I'd like media to explore why these women haven't come forward before and delve into the issues of why the media didn't bring this to people's attention. I think it's because of the pervasiveness and acceptance of sexual harassment in the workplace. I think there is a huge problem with sexual harassment (both women and men) in the workplace and it is accepted as being part of being able to be a professional. If you react you will not be considered professional and there will be consequences for your professional development and retribution, including threats to one's job. In this economic environment that is used and is successful. By the time one can plan for a way to escape that workplace environment, the statute of limitations is over. Forget being a whistleblower or taking it to the state board - it's not an economically viable alternative.
