Public Service Announcement Script: Sexual Harassment at Work

(Voice #1)
It’s late already, aren’t you going to work?
(Voice #2)
No, I don’t want to work there anymore.
(Voice #1)
Why?
(Voice #2)
Because people there are very rude and they don’t respect women. I don’t like how they look at us and call us things like "hey baby" and "honey."
(Voice #3)
That’s how men are! They’re just flirting!
(Voice #2)
But it bothers me a lot how they treat us. They make me nervous and I fear for the other women who work there too.
(Voice #1)
What you are describing is sexual harassment and that is against the law!

Sexual harassment in the workplace is against the civil and federal laws of the United States. No one should be exposed to sexual harassment at work or be forced to have sexual contact to obtain or keep a job. In fact, to force or to obligate someone to have sex is rape and that is a crime.

You Deserve Respect! Regardless of your immigration status, report the crime and help us stop the abuse. To learn more about your rights, call the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) at 1–800–669–4000. For local support and services related to sexual assault call ________________________ at ###-###-####.
