Award winning movie producer, Leila Djansi has detailed her experiences growing up as a movie producer and the challenge of sexual harassment she had to endure at the hands of men she needed some little help from.
The producer in a movie shared her experience in a Facebook post which read
“I’ll share my sexual harassment stories all week.
In Ghana and in America.
When I started out, a TV station owed me money. I met with the head for my payment and he asked me to kiss him first. I said no. Went home without pay. Spent another week without food. My dad was down with stroke so there was no way I was asking my parents for money. Thanks to friends who invited me to their meals.
My previous attorney who ended up robbing me. He said my boobs were too small, industry men will not find me attractive enough to give me deals. His advice was to get a partner with big boobs who’d use her sexuality to get me into rooms.
