Tresa Baldas Detroit Free Press Published 6:01 AM EDT May 31, 2019 Over the last several years, scores of female travelers have complained about being sexually harassed, taunted and stalked by male workers at Jamaica's finest resorts — but you wouldn't know it using TripAdvisor's new safety tool. The tool, created after a Free Press investigation revealed a long-standing sex assault problem in Jamaica, was designed to flag these complaints. But unless one digs deep into the travel site and scours every hotel review section, the stories about sexually aggressive male employees mistreating, frightening and intimidating female tourists cannot be found. Not the unwanted groping or cornering. Not the following of women to their rooms at night and asking for sex. Not the bragging about male anatomy size to women in a buffet line, and telling them they need a real Jamaican man to "f---." … [Read more...] about Jamaica’s resorts stalking reports still buried on TripAdvisor

Several years ago, a former Los Angeles City Council aide alleged in a lawsuit that her supervisor, John Lee, had quizzed her about her sex life, told her “I know you want me,” and refused to consider her for another job because she was a “petite pretty girl.” Lee, who worked for Councilman Mitchell Englander, denied those claims. Englander called them “patently false.” The legal battle ended more than four years ago, with Lee himself being dismissed as a defendant before the city agreed to pay a $75,000 settlement. Now Lee is running for City Council — and is likely to face fresh questions about her allegations. His candidacy will test whether such claims have added sway with voters amid the #MeToo movement, which has empowered people to speak up about sexual harassment and assault. Lee is widely seen as a front-runner in the crowded race to succeed Englander, who stepped down last year to take a job with an entertainment firm. He worked … [Read more...] about John Lee was accused of harassment. Will that sway Valley voters?
For adolescents blessed with willowy good looks, the fashion world offers the prospect of glamour, celebrity, and wealth. But this, for many, is what the beginning of a modeling career can actually look like: On her first test shoot as a 15-year-old, Dasha Alexander said, a photographer held a camera in one hand and digitally penetrated her with his other — a move, he explained, that would make the pictures more “raw” and “sensual.”When Coco Rocha refused to get naked on set as a 16-year-old, she said, the photographer replaced her with a girl who was younger and more obedient. Months later, a famous photographer simulated an orgasm as he took Rocha’s picture.By the time Lenka Chubuklieva was 17, she said, an agent had repeatedly groped her, a photographer had thrown her on a bed and kissed her, and another photographer had masturbated in front of her and threatened to ruin her family in Ukraine if she told anyone.“If people really understood … [Read more...] about The fashion world promises glamour and wealth. Instead, many find harassment and assault.
