i cried reading this. thank you Heidi Hackemer. i think strong women in advertising share many of the same stories — even the terror of those who are empowered, scared and think its ok to threaten pain. and we do need those men who wont put up with it to be recognized. those guys who help you navigate the shitty environments we’ve all been in. starting your own business as a female, what was the hardest thing my first year, sexual harassment of the worst kind — the kind that ties your livelihood to those who wield some form of power they shouldn't. one day we will make that lunch happen neighbor. thanks for this.
