10/18/12 Action Supporting HUCTW Member Johany Pilar, Retaliated against for Reporting Sexual Harassment

Defend Johany Pilar! Fight Rape Culture in the Workplace

Since 1998, HUCTW member Johany Pilar has worked in Harvard's Science Center Mail Room. She first reported unwanted advances and physical contact from a co-worker in March of this year. Ever since she complained about sexual harassment, Johany has faced retaliation from managers. She's experienced pressure, unequal treatment compared to co-workers, and threats.

On September 14, Johany received an unfair disciplinary warning threatening her with being fired. Johany has never been warned for anything in all her years at Harvard. She has started a lawsuit with the MA Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD).

Please come to an action supporting Johany and all those who stand up against gender discrimination, sexual harassment, & for their right to fair and equal treatment on the job!

Join us Thursday, October 18 at 5 pm, @ Harvard's Holyoke Center, 1350 Mass. Ave., Cambridge! For more information email:
