Variety: Will Focus on Hollywood Toxicity Force a Culture Change at Top Agencies?

November 7, 2017 | by

Variety covered sexual harassment allegations at talent agencies and how these institutions could help address harassment. 

“Meetings aren’t against the law. Sexually predatory ones are,” says Noreen Farrell, executive director of San Francisco-based nonprofit Equal Rights Advocates. “Most players in Hollywood understand the difference. As a practical matter, excluding women or men — both of whom can be victimized — from meetings would shut Hollywood and every industry down. The answer is not to exclude anyone from meetings, but to keep them professional, no matter where they take place.”
