Ces derniers mois, on a assisté à une déferlante d'accusations sur les réseaux sociaux. Tous ces messages sont diffusés dans un même but : Dénoncer le harcèlement sexuel qui peut toutes nous toucher. Focus
Le 14 octobre, la rédaction de fan2.fr vous avait parlé du harcèlement sexuel : Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson, Cara Delevingne, focus sur la polémique Harvey Weinstein et les agressions sexuelles dans le show-business. L'affaire Weinstein a délié les langues de beaucoup d'artistes et de célébrités. S'en sont suivis des milliers et des milliers de messages accusateurs avec le mot clé #MeToo, pour dénoncer les gestes déplacés, les paroles obscènes et les violences dont ont été victimes les femmes. En France, le hashtag #BalanceTonPorc quelques jours plus tard. Célébrités nationales, amies, collègues, profs... Les femmes sont nombreuses à utiliser ces mots pour dénoncer leurs harceleurs et les méfaits qu'elles ont pu subir, parfois à plusieurs reprises. Plus récemment, ce sont 456 actrices suédoises qui ont partagé un texte relatant leurs agressions. On le sait, sur les réseaux sociaux et grâce à Internet, il est relativement facile de mobiliser et ces mouvements ont pris une ampleur considérable. À l'image de l'évolution des mentalités ? Ça reste à voir. Mais quelque chose semble en train de se passer : On en parle. Rappelons-le, la dénonciation, même si elle reste difficile, est indispensable.Dénoncer le harcèlement sexuel, pourquoi ? Quelques réponses :
- Révéler une triste réalité
More than once in my career I was confronted to a situation where I had to dodge predators. All the brave women who have spoken up are hopefully opening a new chapter. I have much respect for them and I support them with all my heart. This is the time to unfold and deconstruct a horrifying system. This is the time we, women AND men, denounce it loud so that we create a profound change and those terrifying things never happen again. This is the time we examine our consciousness and to which degree we have tolerated abuse? This is the time to heal. What is happening today, is very important. For everyone. Important for Harvey Weinstein. He has to face what he has been doing for too long and needs to understand it is sick and criminal and that he has to make amends. I hope, I wish it will help him to become a better person. Important because it will hopefully dissuade others to act with impunity. Power doesn’t give right to crime. Important for These beautiful women. What soften the deep sadness I feel today is that they are on a path of reconciliation and they will rise stronger. They are opening our eyes and heart, and all the souls that were harmed this way will know from now on that they are supported. And I want to tell them that vulnerability is not a weakness, it is a quality that should be cherish, respected and protected. Traduction dans les commentaires
- Dévoiler l'envers du décor du showbiz
When I first started to work as an actress, i was working on a film and I received a call from Harvey Weinstein asking if I had slept with any of the women I was seen out with in the media. It was a very odd and uncomfortable call....i answered none of his questions and hurried off the phone but before I hung up, he said to me that If I was gay or decided to be with a woman especially in public that I'd never get the role of a straight woman or make it as an actress in Hollywood. A year or two later, I went to a meeting with him in the lobby of a hotel with a director about an upcoming film. The director left the meeting and Harvey asked me to stay and chat with him. As soon as we were alone he began to brag about all the actresses he had slept with and how he had made their careers and spoke about other inappropriate things of a sexual nature. He then invited me to his room. I quickly declined and asked his assistant if my car was outside. She said it wasn't and wouldn't be for a bit and I should go to his room. At that moment I felt very powerless and scared but didn't want to act that way hoping that I was wrong about the situation. When I arrived I was relieved to find another woman in his room and thought immediately I was safe. He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction. I swiftly got up and asked him if he knew that I could sing. And I began to sing....i thought it would make the situation better....more professional....like an audition....i was so nervous. After singing I said again that I had to leave. He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips. I stopped him and managed to get out of the room. I still got the part for the film and always thought that he gave it to me because of what happened. Since then I felt awful that I did the movie. I felt like I didn't deserve the part. I was so hesitant about speaking out....I didn't want to hurt his family. I felt guilty as if I did something wrong. I was also terrified that this sort of thing had happened to so many women I know but no one had said anything because of fear.
Malheureusement, le harcèlement sexuel ne touche pas que l'univers du cinéma et des médias mais tous les secteurs professionnels, au quotidien.
- Faire cesser ces comportements
- Rétablir la justice entre les victimes et les coupables
Last night felt like a sea change. A moment when women and men spoke up about harassment and the abuse of power in an open forum as a community that will not tolerate this behavior any more. A new community determined to create change so young people, who come after us, will not have to the feel shame or guilt that does not belong to them. I am so encouraged that we are making a new path forward. Thank you @elleusa and all of the incredibly inspiring honorees for your courage, your love and your truth. ❤️

I stand with all the women who have been sexually harassed, and am awestruck by their bravery. This mistreatment of women has to stop.— Emma Watson (@EmmaWatson) October 10, 2017
In this instance it was women affected but I also stand with all the men, indeed any person, who has suffered sexual harassment.— Emma Watson (@EmmaWatson) October 10, 2017

Le site du Service public définit le harcèlement sexuel comme suit : "Le fait d'imposer à une personne, de façon répétée, des propos ou comportements à connotation sexuelle qui :
portent atteinte à sa dignité en raison de leur caractère dégradant ou humiliant,
ou créent à son encontre une situation intimidante, hostile ou offensante." Une pression grave, même non répétée, dans le but d'obtenir un acte sexuel est également considéré comme du harcèlement. En cas de contact physique de la part de l'agresseur, il peut s'agir d'une agression sexuelle. Que ces pressions, paroles ou gestes soient commis dans votre établissement scolaire, sur votre lieu de travail ou dans la rue, par un adulte, un collègue, un proche,... Ils sont punis par la loi.
