Allison Dvaladze, director of global strategy at a Seattle-based international women’s cancer project, was sexually assaulted on a Delta flight from Seattle to Amsterdam in 2016 and since then has mounted a one-woman campaign to bring attention to the issue. Sexual assault of women on commercial flights happens regularly, yet victims often receive minimal support from airline staff and there are few prosecutions of perpetrators. Dvaladze’s experience led her to bring attention to what she soon realized is a recurring problem, and to push for some way to address it. (📷 by Ellen M. Banner/The Seattle Times)⠀
