A recent survey of more than 2,000 Writer’s Guild of America West members confirmed with quantifiable statistics what women in Hollywood have been saying for years now: For a majority of women in the industry, particularly those in male-dominated areas like the writers’ room, sexual harassment is part and parcel with the job.
To be specific, the survey, reported on by Deadline, found that 64 percent of female writers have experienced sexual harassment sometime in their careers. Furthermore, “a significant amount” of that harassment happens in the writers’ room. The survey also found that 11 percent of male writers had experienced sexual harassment, but that the number of writers who have witnesses harassment was even higher.

These bitches smh
Shut the fuck up with this bullshit
I'm not surprised. This is the film industry. I say over half of the actresses/actors in Hollywood have performed nude/half dressed/sex scenes even when its not necessary for the story to move forward lol. Hollywood is full of pervs. They even sexualize children. That's the film industry though. How you think porn started? Hollywood is filth covered up in glamour. Unfortunately though in order to make it, you gotta pay the price.
Do I think some of these women are exaggerating or lying? Nah. I do believe however a lot of them knew what was going on the whole time or 'played along' to get the role or to move up in the industry and are now acting like they're just innocent victims and had no part.
99% of complex’s subscribers hate women y’all really speaking to the wrong people
mom helped me bathe when i was 2 #MeToo
shut fuck up
Fuck this movement, got one of the greatest actors of all time arrested with lies for money and fame.
People need to learn what being sexually harassed is. Someone hitting on you or asking you out is not harassment.
Natasha rejected my dms #MeToo
Hollywood is a mixed shitbag of hypocrisy and lies. Gotta love these people, one day they are up there supporting woman’s rights, the next day being charged with sexual harassment. No wonder people don’t give a shit about Hollywood, actors, actresses, and award shows. They can’t be taken seriously anymore, it’s over. Time is up, nobody cares.
This girl came up to me and told me she liked my hair 😣 #MeToo
This me too bullshit is a waste of ppl time it went from actually helping to just another way for pissed off Women to get you in hot water…natasha that a sexy outfit too oh sorry that might be sexually harassment
Of Women PERIOD EVERYWHERE
I called a girl by her name. She filed a harassment claim on my ass…
I sneezed in the vicinity of a woman and I'm about to do 2 years on sexual assault charges
A girl said I looked handsome while at work #metoo
How are you going to put dirty jokes in TV shows if you can't make dirty jokes in the writers room.
"Two Thirds of Hollywood's Female Writers Have Been Working On Their Fiction Stories For A Quick Buck" #evenifitistruewhatabouttheotherthird #mentoo
Complex stick to rap.
66% yea right. Yet 99% don’t report it.
A girl called me by my last name #metoo
Feminist are loving it
DONALD TRUMP AND STORMY DANIELS SEX TAPE JUST LEAKED:
ONE GIRL TRIED TO TALK TO ME.. RAPE RAPE RAPE oh yeah and crude talk is sexual harassment now so I’ve raped my brothers, my dad, all my friends, yeah good one compLex
…and 7/8 of Hollywood's writers are incompetent; all of Lucas Film Story Group is incompetent. has anyone noticed the river of shit flowing out of Hollywood for a while now? no wonder box office sales have been declining for the last decade.
Then fucking quit or stfu.
maybe some of them were but not all of them no way.
I really don't think that over half the women have experience sexual assault. Like that's a lot of women. It's not like every guy out there just goes and starts grabbing girls tities and ass. I really think we need to make sure people know what is and isn't sexual assualt
This is all a plan of the Feminist Movement, they already took over American Media, look at all the Sports show with Female host…
At this point looking at a female is sexual assault.
This teacher touch my shoulder while helping me #MeToo
Natasha can get it constantly
Of course… especially when flirting is considered sexual harassment, I can only imagine- I'm just shocked it not more.
I can’t with feminism anymore. It’s gone too far
I don't think "my pussy grabs back" is convincing to stop sexual harassment ijs
😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂 This shit is too funny! Can't believe these people
Some girl picked up my papers and handed them to me after I dropped them! #MeToo
So flirting is sexual harassment now?
Y’all went to far when you accused Morgan freeman.
Omg he said I look good! HARASSMENT! #Metoo
Crying wolf, I don't know who to believe.
Natasha, youve seen the comment section on your videos, you know they are just going to say you're lying, say you're overreacting, or do mental gymnastics to blame the person who was harrassed, usually wrapped into what they want to do you sexually (and they wont even see it).
male : * accidently touches leg *
thot : "FUCK YES DADDY"
male : "what?"
thot : "what?"
