"Thank you for making this film. It should be required viewing for every employer and employee! The most impactful films are told through personal stories. The takeaway for me was to encourage third parties to intervene when they hear a derogatory comment or inappropriate sexual remark at the office to SPEAK UP! "

90% of women never file a formal complaint; 75% never complain to their employers.
Women know the statistics. At least 75% of those who report harassment experience retaliation; more extreme harassment, demotion or loss of promotion prospects, and even termination.
80% of women who have been harassed leave their place of employment within two years.
The economic impact is catastrophic. Proving that this is not a ‘woman’s problem’, a September 2020 an Australian Deloitte study (using metrics established by US-based MSPB) put the productivity loss for sexual harassment at $2.62 billion; adjusting for economies, the equivalent sum in the US stands at over $13 billion. Yet unless something in organizational cultures is radically changed, victims know to keep silent, with far-reaching consequences for both them and the companies they work for.
Most companies have many harassment policies in place, and do regular training.
Sometimes these are taken seriously, but often they result in a rolling of eyes and a ‘tick-the-box’ mentality; as the famous HBR article shows, few have long-term impact.

"This film does a great job dispelling myths about sexual harassment & explaining serious concepts in an entertaining matter."
"As a victim of workplace harassment, the film was powerful and empowering."
“Sarah captured the anguish that so many feel when an entire system refuses to recognize them solely for their intellect, passion, and humanity. I was ready to be influenced but the film goes further by giving us a glimpse into ourselves too. Discrimination, harassment, and marginalization are not women’s issues. They are all of our issues as individuals, leaders, and members of society. Every person should see this film and think about the loss to our communities, cultures, and even the economy when we marginalize others.”
