Björk today told a story on Facebook about a time when she was sexually harassed when she was working with an unnamed filmmaker. “i am inspired by the women everywhere who are speaking up online to tell about my experience with a danish director,” she wrote. “it was extremely clear to me whe n i walked into the actresses profession that my humiliation and role as a lesser sexually harassed being was the norm and set in stone with the director and a staff of dozens who enabled it and encouraged it. … when i turned the director down repeatedly he sulked and punished me and created for his team an impressive net of illusion where i was framed as the difficult one.”
She goes on saying that after she confronted the director about his behavior, “he had a more fair and meaningful relationship with his actresses after my confrontation so there is hope.” She continued, “let’s hope this statement supports the actresses and actors all over. let’s stop this. there is a wave of change in the world.” Read her full statement below.
