Also...I'm hella pregnant! ✨It's magic✨

If I ever need to remind myself of what power looks like, I will think of this moment, standing beside Anna, Aly, and Anita. I will think of meeting Professor Anita Hill and witnessing her grace and clarity and generosity. How she continues to commit herself tirelessly to teaching and leading us all. And how millions of people came forward to say #MeToo, and in the case of fashion #MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse, and challenge our culture. And how, for one evening, we got to be a part of celebrating all of our resilience and strength, our power to make a more livable world. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• BIG shout out to @bethfenton_ for outfitting me in all feminist designers! Dress @normakamali & shoes @brothervellies. Thank you also to makeup @ttmakarova & hair @sashahere

Grateful to @glamourmag and @cindi_leive for giving me the opportunity to speak at the #gwoty Summit. I got to share lots of ideas that have been swirling in my head for years, about speechlessness, and finding my voice.
I strongly believe that most of us in the fashion industry have always known about the stories shared by the brave men and women who joined me in coming forward to say #MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse. It would be almost impossible to be a player, and I include myself in this, who is unaware of the imbalance and abuse of power. I know we can do better, and this talk is my small contribution to a way forward for an industry that has so many parts I admire deeply, culture, community, and creativity, among them.

***If you have been a victim of rape our assault 24/7 support is available from rainn.org.*** For those who shared, and for everyone who read these stories and is feeling vulnerable, please take care of yourself.
For many of us the familiarity of these stories, can shake us to our core as we recall our own.
Self care might mean turning off your phone/computer, taking a walk, meditating, writing, exercising, eating, sleeping, or being around people who love and care for you. In my bio find a link to a self-care guide, and please post your own tips in the comments.
For me, self-care is recognizing that continuing to post will not solve this problem. Meaningful change doesn't happen overnight. By stepping away to calmly plan next steps I can continue to be of service. I am sorry I cannot respond to or post everyone's story. I hope together we can find an outlet for this strength that unifies us further and challenges the status quo.
For now, let us end with gratitude to the hundreds who came forward to share, and a celebration of our resilience. #myjobshouldnotincludeabuse

1. The people who shared their stories here did not give explicit permission for them to be shared elsewhere. Although this is a public space, please be mindful of amplifying this community storytelling. Please protect the privacy of users who did not anticipate that they would be quoted in the media.

2. This is only the first step in a long process to make sexual harassment, assault, and violence unacceptable. For this reason, I will not be participating in click bate interviews, especially those which serve to drive traffic to publications that continue to hire these predators.
Instead, I hope that an experienced investigative team can support the work of holding the fashion industry accountable, while centering and protecting leadership by people silenced for too long. #myjobshouldnotincludeabuse

This was not an expose because nothing in these stories should be a revelation for those working in our industry. Instead it was the beginning of a power shift. We are speaking to each other, we are speaking up, we are speaking to lawyers, and we are speaking to well resourced reporters.
The last 48 hours has been devastating. We know what is happening in fashion. We tolerate it and ignore it and excuse it every day. Coming face to face with so many of the people effected is opening to an impossible grief.
To the magazines, agencies, clients, and editors who reached out for interviews, who commented to express solidarity and horror, who said they do not stand for sexual assault, SHOW US.

Is there a hotline for freelancers to call? What are the consequences of workplace sexual harassment, assault, and violence? What will you do now? What will you do next time you are a witness?

We all know who the perpetrators are and we continue to work with them. STOP. Advertisers and magazines, stop hiring these people. Agencies, stop sending them talent. Stop today. Do not wait until lawyers get involved. Do the right thing because the wrong thing is horrific. #myjobshouldnotincludeabuse

A few years ago I was shooting with another model at a client's corporate headquarters. In the staff kitchen on the required labor law posters, we read the definition of sexual harassment. "This sounds like our job description," I said. We laughed and went back to work. When I got home and looked up the definition online, it was so spot on it felt like someone who knew us...and of course they did. Sexual harassment is unacceptably commonplace.
I sat down to try to make a list of my own experiences. Non consensual kisses, spanks, gropes, and pinches. Failing to provide adequate changing space, shaming in response to requests for adequate changing space. Bullying by editors, photographers, stylists, and clients to go topless or nude. Publishing nudity after contractually agreeing not to. Non consensual massage. Inappropriate emails, text messages, and phone calls. Pressure while underage to consume alcohol. Being directed to "pretend like I'm your boyfriend." Being forced to sleep at the photographer's home rather than provided a hotel. Having my job threatened if I don't participate. Being called difficult, feminist, virgin, diva when speaking up or saying no. Being unclear about boundaries because so many boundaries have been crossed. I loose count. And this is only what's easy to share, what's as commonplace as 9am call times, fittings, and lunch. #myjobshouldnotincludeabuse

...for the tidal wave of bravery. For the hundreds of people who participated in the type of sharing that can only be motivated by love. You all made it possible to see that beyond the horror, as a community we can turn pain, shame, and vulnerability into to dignity, power, and change. #myjobshouldnotincludeabuse
