#GAReads | 'Never Do This to a Woman': Men Harass 2 Sports Reporters at the World Cup
For women who work as sports reporters, #MeToo isn’t just a movement, it’s often their everyday reality.
In just the past two weeks, two women were harassed while reporting at the World Cup in Russia, the episodes captured in widely viewed videos.
One of the women, Julia Guimarães, a reporter with TV Globo and SporTV in Brazil, was speaking on camera in Yekaterinburg, Russia, on Sunday when a man tried to kiss her on the cheek. In the video, Ms. Guimarães can be seen quickly dodging the man’s puckered lips.
“Don’t do this!” she told him. “Never do this again, O.K.?”
