Description

A different kind of #MeToo story, about several women who worked for the same man. They tell us not only about their troubling encounters with him, but also about their lives beforehand. Who were they when they entered the workplace, and how did their personal histories shape the way they dealt with his harassment?

My heart goes out to all of these women. Having been on both ends, having my partner have multiple affairs and also being sexually assaulted, its horrible. Some people just suck, suck, suck! Haunted every single day. 😢.

This was good until woman number 2 came on and said "like" every other sentence. Made it unlistenable.

I always pictured the office on steroids listening to this episode. Michael Scott would be ignorant to all the cases. Much respect to all the victims for sharing the story.

This is so touching. There are so many experiences that I brushed under the carpet and listening to these stories is kind of freeing and, at the same time, crushing as I didn't have strenght to stand up for myself and I don't know if I will ever be able to do that.
