New Zealand women actors are to launch their own #MeToo campaign, to stamp out sexual harassment in the screen industry.
MeToo is a two-word hashtag used on social media to demonstrate the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment, especially in the workplace
The Screen Women’s Action Group was to launch its own group, saying it was committed to changing the culture that enabled sexual harassment, discrimination, and other abuses of power.
It said it would work towards an industry-wide sexual harassment policy and a system where people could complain about sexual harassment.
It’s expected to be formally launched in March.
