Tracey Spicer Is About To Out 40 Media 'Serial Predators’
Ever since news broke of Harvey Weinstein and his debaucherous, solatious ways became public knowledge after years of being swept under the rug, it seems the conversation has become bigger.
That’s at least one good thing to come from all of this.
People like Harvey, and even worse, the people who knew about people like Harvey and condoned the behaviour, are learning that it will no longer be tolerated.
The creation of the #MeToo hashtag is encouraging women - and men - to open up about their own experiences with sexual assault - and Tracey is also encouraging sharing.
Currently, I am investigating two long-term offenders in our media industry. Please, contact me privately to tell your stories.— Tracey Spicer (@TraceySpicer) October 17, 2017
Taking to Twitter, Tracey revealed she was investigating ‘two-long term offenders in our media industry’ and encouraged women to share their own stories with her privately.
“It is an absolute tsunami of sexual assault, intimidation and abuse. It is absolutely horrific,” Spicer told The Daily Telegraph.
“There are 30 to 40 alleged offenders so far and I would say the vast majority of them would have more than one case against them.”
Thank you to the 100s of women who've come forward with their #metoo experiences in the Oz media. I will contact you all within 24 hours.— Tracey Spicer (@TraceySpicer) October 19, 2017
She is putting together a list of 40 media ‘serial predators’ who are also ‘household names’ but insists, it’s not a witch hunt.
"This is not any kind of witch hunt, we want the culture to change within workplaces so women are safe," she told The Project.
Can’t wait to see the list, so that people everywhere understand that it will no longer be tolerated.
Times, they are a-changing - and how sweet it is.
