'Create a safe place for sexual harassment victims' #MeToo

Veteran actress Florence Masebe says men and women must speak up about sexual harassment and abuse in the acting industry.

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa, Masebe says sexual harassment has to be taken seriously, rather than as something that is just whispered about.

We have to reach a point where we realise that if we don't create safe spaces for women to speak up, by the women it's not only women who must speak up about harassment and these undesirable sexual advances are being made towards these young men as well industry we know this.

Florence Masebe, actress

Until we create safe spaces for the victims of sexual harassment to speak up; we are always going to have a problem and the problem is going to fester even further.
