Rebekah has started an anti-sexual harassment campaign called #ForTheMusic.
“After deciding I would like to mentor people to help bring them in to the industry,” she said, “it became apparent I was unable to do this unless I stood up and tried to fight to make the industry a safer place all round.”
The #ForTheMusic campaign starts with an open letter and petition at Change.org, pledging to protect artists, staff and partygoers from harassment, guarantee safe workplaces and other initiatives, as RA reports.
“We have lost our jobs, our careers, our credibility and our reputation by speaking out,” the open letter says. “Labelled promiscuous beings deserving of violence, we are told that our cuts and bruises mean nothing if aimed at those with gentle faces, and high followings. But not anymore. We have stayed quiet, and never went public. But not anymore. We tried to do this privately and found ourselves unheard. But not anymore.”
