Brief Explanation

Sexual harassment in the workplace is rampant but difficult to prove as abuses of power can be insidious but not overt - i.e. suggestive glances, touches etc. It is alarming that some women accept this exploitation as part of their job. The sinister voiceover in this spot attempts to break the perception.
