Many of us may have heard about cases of sexual violence in press companies or the journalists' world of work. However, the case only became a rumor in the press community. Not many victims of sexual violence dare to speak out. Even if they dare to speak out, sometimes the cases stop halfway because there are no specific regulations in the press company to handle cases of sexual violence.
Not to mention, if the perpetrator has a higher position such as a senior at work to a resource person who has a position such as an official or minister. These cases are sometimes normalized for various reasons. Starting from the press companies do not want to lose relations to advertising matters.
Because of this, it is understandable why instances of sexual abuse in media organizations and the professional lives of journalists do not frequently surface. If ignored, this condition will deteriorate. There must be a safe environment where victims may come out and where we can all understand the issues at hand and work together to find answers.
