Thankfully, awareness about sexual harassment has been spreading lately — and the more people who share their stories, the closer we will come to making harassment a thing of the past. David Schwimmer launched a new campaign to fight sexual harassment called #ThatsHarassment, and it comes in the form of six short films from director Sigal Avin (who herself experienced sexual harassment by a famous actor early in her career).
Based on real-life stories, each film depicts (painfully real) encounters that six different women experience in their day-to-day.
“I realized that I really wanted to see what sexual harassment was instead of hearing about it and reading about it all the time,” Avin said in an interview with Cosmo. “There was nothing on it, everything was much more violent, or unreal, but there was nothing that showed the gray area of sexual harassment.”
