Posted on 12/15/2017 8:28:20 PM PST by EdnaMode
A commission headed by Anita Hill and composed of and funded by some of the most powerful names in Hollywood has been created to tackle widespread sexual abuse and harassment in the media and entertainment industries.
Called the Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace, the initiative was spearheaded by Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm; Maria Eitel, the co-chair of the Nike Foundation; the powerhouse attorney Nina Shaw; and Freada Kapor Klein, the venture capitalist who helped pioneer surveys on sexual harassment decades ago.
The commissions mission, according to a news release, is to tackle the broad culture of abuse and power disparity.
The commission will lead the entertainment industry toward alignment in achieving safer, fairer, more equitable and accountable workplaces particularly for women and marginalized people, according to a statement released Friday evening.
Ms. Kennedy, Ms. Eitel, Ms. Shaw and Ms. Klein called the meeting on Friday, and it included some of the titans of the media and entertainment industries: the agents Ari Emanuel and Bryan Lourd, Screen Actors Guild President Gabrielle Carteris, Dawn Hudson of the academy, Bob Iger of Disney, Jim Gianopulos of Paramount, Leslie Moonves of CBS and Ted Sarandos of Netflix.

Sheesh, what idiots.
Need a commission to make rules on how not to be jerk.
Anita Hill represents all the women who were so traumatized that they wait for years, and for a political spotlight, to accuse?
That cinches it for me - This has nothing to do with equality or fairness but is yet another socialist plot intended to take down the media corps and have socialist leaders installed in their place or to have political minders installed to keep watch over those that can’t be ousted.
This is all for show. Everything the Left does is calculating and to achieve long-term goals.
In the end, this will become about Trump some how.
The commission will not seek just one solution, but a comprehensive strategy to address the complex and interrelated causes of the problems of parity and power, Ms. Kennedy said, adding that the fact that so many industry leaders came together, in one room, to explore solutions speaks to a new era.A new era of Full-of-Ourselves.
let her talk about Carter vs Sedgewick County Kansas
It certainly feels that way.
Yeah I think so too.
Back when I was 14, I said something to a young girl I very much regret.
Maybe they should take me out and shoot me.
McCarthyism part II. The irony is excruciating. And the fools will never figure it out.
Sexual harassers - a thousand to one Democrat to Republican... Anita found a Republican to accuse. How typical of Hollywood... they would choose Anita - how dreadful.
Higher technology lynching.
The fox guarding the henhouse--Disney is by far the worst offender for child sexual exploitation, in case after case after case. Between Iger and Hill and some of the other characters involved, it's clear the purpose of the commission is to cover up for the studio executives while attempting to turn the investigation into a left-wing political PR exercise.
Is it Halloween?
I said something regrettable to a lady who worked at my gym in 2011. I apologized to her later on, and she was very appreciative of that, but I am obviously unredeemable anyway.
Haha. And these Hollywood fags thought Joe McCarthy was bad.
