Sexual Harassment Cases Popular in the United States
There was seen in the year 2017, such a high number of the sex-based harassment charges being taken to the courts in the United States alone. This rise in the number of the sexual harassment charges was not only in the United States alone but as well the world over. The year as well saw such a rise in the number of the number of personalities from the entertainment industry, Hollywood celebrities, who came out and spoke of the sexual harassment that they had as well faced over the years. Surprising is the fact that a number of the cases actually touched on a number of the prominent personalities and powerful leaders and by far and large, this spread to so many other countries such as Peru, India and Israel.
Thanks to the campaigns and mobilization done all over by the #metoo movement, there was as such seen such a rise in the number of the reported sexual harassment cases in the United States and by extension the world over. This be as it is, the other fact that we need to acknowledge is the fact that this success in the number of the sexual harassment cases that have been talked about and come to the limelight has been as well been as a result of the sexual harassment cases that were before. The US history is filled with lots of sexual harassment cases. The following is a look at some of the most notable and biggest of the sexual harassment cases that were seen ever in the history of the country, the United States.
The first of these cases that we will take a look at is that which saw one Ani Chopourian sue the Catholic Healthcare West which came up in the year 2012. She was actually an employee of the Mercy General Hospital, working there as a physician. In her allegations, she said that in the course of her career at the facility, she did report a number of times cases of sexual harassment.
She further stated that after her reports, the Catholic Healthcare West did nothing following these reports as the website shows. Some of the harassments she alleged to have been subjected to included those such as verbal assaults such as where she was ever being greeted by this guy every morning telling her that he was horny and the same repeatedly slapped her buttocks. By the end of the case and when it was determined, at least initially, the suing party, Chopourian was granted an award for the allegations, of a sum of over $160 million. This actually stood then as one figure of an award to a sexual harassment victim that had never been seen in the history of the United States.
