Female journalists may now have a greater presence on television news but they continue to be the target of sexual assault. In a message on Twitter, the reporter recounted how she was kissed on the head by an unknown man while reporting live from Salou in Tarragona. Today it happened to me. A guy decided to kiss me on the head while I was doing a live link. He and his friends thought it was funny.
But I found the situation embarrassing and unacceptable. There is a huge lack of respect and surplus of sexist attitudes. Unlike other sexist incidents that have happened this year, this one did not occur at a sporting event.
Nos ha desconcertado a todos. While reporting live, a man ran up to her and kissed her cheek. Es que yo no le veo la gracia y sigue sin parecerme normal. I wanted to put this issue to rest but I have decided to share this video so that those who say we are exaggerating or that these are just jokes can please explain what is funny about this. We are doing our jobs, we are not ornaments, we are not waiting for kisses that we do not ask for We are not little dolls in the street.
We are professionals and we simply ask for respect. Spanish journalists are far from the only reporters being harassed. A DW reporter was sexually harassed while covering the WorldCup.
The incident can be seen here Sexual harassment is not okay. It needs to stop.
In football, and elsewhere. In the video of the incident, Mora is seen reporting the news before suddenly turning around and hitting one of the fans with her microphone. She later explained that the men had touched her body without her permission.
Me manosearon varias veces mientras estaba a cuadro. I was touched multiple times while my back was turned. Thanks for your unwanted opinion.
Pedi que repetisse enquanto eu filmava. I asked him to repeat what he said before the camera. I never thought I would have to go through something like this working.
