I am honoured to have 3 amazing women on the podcast to discuss the #MeToo movement. Myself (Sarah), Amanda, Shannon and Carmen also talk about our various experiences with sexual harassment, assault and abuse – and how these experiences impacted our lives. In this brutally honest episode we speak openly about an issue women around the world face everyday. We talk to each other, learn from each other and most importantly – support each other.
In part 1 we focus on the movement itself, sexual assault and abuse in the entertainment industry and we hear Sarah and Carmen’s personal experiences. Stay tuned for Part 2 where we hear from Shannon and Amanda.
This podcast contains discussions of personal experiences that may be disturbing and triggering for some listeners.
