Performers sadly most likely to be in frontline of abuse, but I've known young female international writers to get from UK directors. Horrid

never knew who to tell, and it would have damaged them and me even more. Always a power thing. We all need a safe space to talk.

Fear of reprisals drives people's silence. Those at top need to set example & ensure a safe space for people to come forward + speak up. 1/2

it's not all about job prospects obviously, but fear of exclusion encourages ppl to 'put up' with inappropriate behaviour.

Have also found if man in power doesn't fancy you, can be denigrating which also affects career.
