‘Jack is being inappropriate,’ she said to her team leader.

‘Jack touched my breasts,’ said the secretary to the CEO.

‘Jack was rude, called me a bitch and pinched my bum,’ said the intern to her supervisor.

‘Don’t mind him,’ said the team leader, CEO and supervisor. ‘He’s eccentric but harmless.’

Today, Jack faces charges for assaulting and harassing over one hundred women. His old male colleagues claim they knew nothing.

    Women all over the world have similar stories to tell. And it’s interesting, the different viewpoints myself and my husband have. Men still aren’t “getting it”. Is this a sea change? I hope so.

    Ah! A sad truth indeed at many work places. Many a times higher officials try to cover it up instead of taking strict action 🙁

    A sad truth which most people overlook, and eventually claim ignorance. You have articulated it very well.
