My book’s promotional video

I changed the title of my sexual harassment ebook, the (title on the) cover, AND the book’s promotional video. (I even added music!)
Check it out!

NOTIFICATION!

Some women suggested to me that the previous title of my sexual harassment e-book sounded like victim blaming, which I’d never do. So, I changed the title and cover.  I’ll have to change the video, too.
It’s now called:

“…said the spider to the fly…”

Sexual Harassment in and outside of Hollywood.

But it’s in the same place on Amazon, so look for it there.

And a big thank you to Danny Rings, who did the illustrations.

The latest in Hollywood

http://www.msn.com/en-us/entertainment/news/decades-of-sexual-harassment-accusations-against-harvey-weinstein/ar-AAsXGcS?li=BBnb7Kz

Who’s surprised? Not me. I had an acting career in Hollywood for 14 years. I was harassed by Producers, Casting Directors, Stage Managers, et. al. The bigger these execs get, the more they believe they’re entitled to – and they don’t hesitate in making someone a victim to get it.
If you’re in The Biz, think about how important working in Show Biz is to you, when enduring this kind of thing really does qualify as a fairly regular working condition (when I had my 3 sh lawsuits, the actor’s union claimed that they didn’t have to do anything about sexual harassment complaints [that were reported to them] because [to them] it wasn’t a working condition. Oh, YES, IT IS!!).
If you’re not in the biz, consider yourself lucky…yes, I know there’s sexual harassment everywhere. But it doesn’t seem to be so frequent or so blatant as it is in show biz, IMO.

EXCUSE ME???

Have you seen this? https://www.cbsnews.com/news/devos-to-rescind-obama-era-title-ix-order-on-withholding-school-funds-for-assault-inaction/?ftag=CNM-00-10aab8d&linkId=41946440

She claims to be “seeking public feedback.” Then GIVE IT TO HER. No time to waste, IMO.

FYI

Sorry, but I’m not terribly surprised to hear this. A man who boasted about sexually assaulting women was put into the White House. Now, women’s assault issues are clearly not anyone’s priority there.
We have to speak out, if that’s going to change.

Horrible

This article tells a story that is all too familiar. A lot of Asian countries are very misogynistic, unfortunately (as we know, it’s certainly not limited to Asian countries). NOT to victim-blame, but do female soldiers not learn how to defend themselves in combat? I would hope they’d use that knowledge to defend themselves against attempted rapes. But I know it’s more complicated than that – they have to “obey” senior officers, no matter what it costs them.
Sexual harassment/abuse happens in our military, too, I’m afraid. Something REALLY needs to be done to protect women in the military…EVERYWHERE.
