EU parliament is flooded with sexual harassment

No shock at all. New reports from Europe reveal that the continental parliament is just as awful in its conduct to women as Hollywood:
An investigation has revealed that the European Parliament is a “hotbed of sexual harassment”, where senior MEPs who “feel they can do whatever they want” prey on young women.

The Sunday Times reports speaking to over a dozen junior staffers — professional, multilingual women, some graduates of the College of Europe which trains people to work for the EU’s standing bureaucracy — who suffered the unwanted attentions of older, often married European politicians.

Some of the allegations levelled are very serious, with at least one MEP accused of masturbating in front of a young aide.
If you read the rest, be advised, it's as gross as you surely guessed. And in some semi-related news, "scholar" Tariq Ramadan's being investigated for sexual assault:
French authorities have opened an investigation into controversial Swiss-born Islamic scholar Tariq Ramadan after a French feminist accused him of sexual misconduct and sending her death threats.

Former Salafist Henda Ayari, 40, who now identifies as a secular feminist, filed a complaint with French authorities in Rouen accusing Ramadan of sexually harassing her, raping her, and issuing death threats towards her. The feminist activist also revealed that she had written about her experience in a book, but had been too fearful to print Ramadan’s name, L’Express reports.

On Friday, Ayari posted on her Facebook account about the situation saying: “I have been silent for several years because of fear, because by threatening to press charges for the rape I was a victim of, he did not hesitate to threaten me and to tell me also that he could go after my children. I got scared and kept quiet all this time.”

"I really hope that other women victims, like me, dare to speak, and denounce this perverted guru who uses religion to manipulate women!” she wrote.
Or, more precisely, who uses religion to justify his behavior. She did the right thing to speak out, and to leave the awful religion/ideology that condones what Ramadan did to her. It's a good thing this news is coming out, and the expose on Harvey Weinstein, interestingly, appears to have been what helped encourage victims to speak up.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
