Unscramble the Blue Letters

Those are just a few of the hiofirrc stories that I herad from wemon over the last year, as I've been investigating workplace sexual harassment. And what I found out is that it's an eipdmiec across the world. It's a horrifying reality for millions of women, when all they want to do every day is go to work. Sexual haesmnsart doesn't discriminate. You can wear a skirt, hospital scrubs, army fatigues. You can be young or old, married or single, black or white. You can be a ribulceapn, a Democrat or an innepedndet. I heard from so many women: police ofcefirs, members of our military, financial assistants, actors, engineers, lawyers, bankers, accountants, tcareehs ... journalists. Sexual harassment, it turns out, is not about sex. It's about power, and about what somebody does to you to try and take away your power. And I'm here today to encourage you to know that you can take that power back.

Original Text

Those are just a few of the horrific stories that I heard from women over the last year, as I've been investigating workplace sexual harassment. And what I found out is that it's an epidemic across the world. It's a horrifying reality for millions of women, when all they want to do every day is go to work. Sexual harassment doesn't discriminate. You can wear a skirt, hospital scrubs, army fatigues. You can be young or old, married or single, black or white. You can be a Republican, a Democrat or an Independent. I heard from so many women: police officers, members of our military, financial assistants, actors, engineers, lawyers, bankers, accountants, teachers ... journalists. Sexual harassment, it turns out, is not about sex. It's about power, and about what somebody does to you to try and take away your power. And I'm here today to encourage you to know that you can take that power back.
