Back at the end of 2017 Emmy award recipient and Mad Men screenwriter, Kater Gordon alleged that she was sexually abused by the series showrunner Matthew Weiner. In a brief note, she accused that Matthew had urged to see her nude while working late at night on the AMC series.
But after a year co-winning the prestigious award Kate was sent off from the popular series and has not been part of the industry since then. Now she has found a charitable organization ‘Modern Alliance’ and has assured to eradicate and end sexual abuses.
Meanwhile, Matthew has rubbished Kate’s accusations and told ‘The New York Times’ back in October 2018 that: “I have reasons I don’t believe that I said it if that makes sense, but I really don’t remember saying it.” But the ex Mad Men writer Marti Noxon openly supported Kate’s statements.
With Weiner planning to return with a series in association with Disney’s FX, the ladies are making sure to giving an opportunity to have a protected working environment so that nothing repeats like before.
The worst nightmare of all times is gender inequality, remote working environs, and sexual abuse for decades.
These stories not only happen in Hollywood but also in other workplaces for women.
