Group Establishes Hollywood Harassment Helpline


New York, NY, USA, Nov 9, 2017 -- The nonprofit advocacy group Women in Film is launching a helpline for sexual harassment victims in the entertainment industry. The group said that the helpline will serve as a crisis center and centralized information source for anyone seeking help.

It is expected to be operational by Dec. 1.

There will also be a pro-bono legal aid panel of specialized attorneys to help advise victims.

Women in Film Executive Director Kirsten Schaffer says their phones have been ringing off the hook since the sexual harassment stories began to break. Schaffer says victims who call express feelings of isolation and fear of retaliation and potential legal costs of coming forward.
