Sexual Abuse at Swedish Theaters, Films

 Verbal and physical sexual harassment IS rampant in the Swedish theater and in the film industry  – according to a new survey carried out by Swedish Radio News among union  members – sparking sharp debate in the media all this week right up to the  ministry of culture.

Some shrug this off as typical of Hollywood and Broadway – where sex is considered a standard swap for a career boost.
