It seems that Ross from FRIENDS is very much like the person, who played him: David Schwimmer. David introduced a campaign on sexual harassment earlier this week. His reason of doing so is simple: every woman he knows with the exception of his daughter has been harassed. The fact that he has a daughter has motivated David to launch a powerful sexual harassment campaign. Titled #ThatsHarassment, this campaign is in the form of video series that has been made available on YouTube. You can check it out right here below.
There was a time when we thought we were way too advanced as human begins to face such problems. But fact remains that it doesn’t matter what year we are in or how advanced women have come, a$$holes do exist. And people are so blinded that they voted one as their president.
It’s not the first time David is involved in campaigns like these, he made a film years ago about child abuse. Sexual child abuse is the worst and Ashton Kutcher too has spoken in congress about that. He recalled this video of an old man and a 2 year old in a situation that’s too shocking to describe. David too has been advocating for the rights and safety of children. We recently found out that about 4000 children were missing since January this year in Washington alone. Clearly, there’s a huge children trafficking ring going on. To think that the President is too busy involved in banning foreign people. Guess, missing kids are not important to them!
As for David, he was amazing in ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson, American Crime Story’. He played the father of Kim Kardashian, Robert Kardashian, who happened to be the best friend of OJ Simpson.
Let David Schwimmer tell you about the #ThatsHarassment campaign
The whole purpose of this is to encourage people and to give them the courage to speak out if they’re a victim themselves of harassment, or if they witness or are aware of sexual harassment. The reality (is that) this kind of harassment takes place in the workplace, in a professional environment.
And that means it’s about power. The problem is that people don’t step forward or say something if they’re witnessing it because of fear of retaliation. The more you’re surrounded by other people who agree and see that something is wrong, the easier it is for someone to step forward. You feel like you have an army behind you.
We don’t want this to be a partisan issue because it’s not. Every woman, no matter what her political beliefs, is subject to sexual harassment. This is not a partisan ‘liberal Hollywood throwing their arms up against Trump’ issue.
That’s not what this is. Having said that, I found his boasting of committing sexual assault really disturbing. I think our leaders have to demonstrate a certain kind of character. When I think about my daughter, I find that difficult to explain.
