I didn’t want anything about this obvious pattern of intimidation and violence against women to be true, at least not for me, because I had been told my entire conscious life that I lived in a new world, one distinct from the troubled past. It wasn’t until a few weeks after the list went viral that the strength of not only her bravery, but also the courage of every woman who participated in compiling, sharing, and discussing it, showed me that this problem was nowhere near as remote as I had hoped. I am profoundly grateful for your radical work facilitating women’s safe and anonymous sharing of their experiences of abuse. Creating the list was central to building solidarity among women and increasing the viability of the whisper network, partial solution though it may be. Thank you for publicly resisting the patriarchal myth that we, individually, must be to blame for any sexual misconduct that befalls us.

Ms Rosenfeld has written an excellent article based on Ms Donegan’s list of offenders in journalism. Unfortunately, women need a list for every industry, big and small. My experience from journalism to government, living in spiritual communities to including a brief crazy period of cleaning houses, sexual harassment is everywhere women work. Luckily for me I was never pysically assaulted, but verbally, emotionally, psychically sexual harassment is everyday occurrence either from bosses, co workers, clients.
