“I’ve chosen a career that is not for everyone. In a field that, until recently, has been almost entirely male dominated. Where crude and demeaning jokes are made daily. I typically am not one to shy away from voicing my opinion and standing my ground. However, that changed today. Today I caught a co- worker masturbating in the kitchen while watching me. I felt a combination of emotions I hope no one ever has to experience. While sharing my experience may not do anything to ease the discomfort, I hope that it sheds light on the fact that the sexualization of women in the restaurant industry is still very much an issue.”
