The Consequences of Sexual Harassment and Assault in the Entertainment Industry
The allegations against Samitier are just the latest example of the rampant sexual harassment and assault that plagues the entertainment industry. It is not just confined to France either; the #MeToo movement, which started in Hollywood, has spread to other parts of the world, exposing the widespread nature of such occurrences.
The impact of such allegations can be significant and long-lasting, not just on the lives of the victims but also on the accused’s career. In the case of Samitier, his removal from ‘Nos Chers Voisins’ and the wider calls for consequences of his actions speak to the gravity of the situation.
The entertainment industry must do more to protect its members from such incidents. It’s not only about having better systems to prevent and deal with sexual harassment and assault but also an entire paradigm shift, where everyone, regardless of their position or status, feels safe speaking truth to power.
