‘Angels’ suffered in culture of misogyny

‘Angels’ suffered in culture of misogyny”

Neither Bella nor Victoria & # 39; s Secret have commented on the report. Wexner himself was billed - in part - a pioneer of the toxic culture at Victoria's Secret. Another alleged victim, Maria Farmer, claimed she was sexually assaulted by Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell in Wexner's mansion in 1996. However, a conviction report recently published by The New York Times suggests that they are suffering behind the scenes due to the culture of "misogyny, intimidation and harassment" in the popular lingerie company and the fashion show giant. She said she tried to call the police but was held by Wexner's security staff for 12 hours.

According to the report, Razek repeatedly subjected models to sexual harassment, with one former VS model, Andi Muise, sharing that Razek harassed her for months, and when she rebuffed his repeated advances, she was not asked to return to the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

An employee at L Brands presented the human resources department with a document that listed more than a dozen accusations against Razek, which included inappropriate touching of women and making "demeaning" comments.

Why it matters: Last week, the WSJ reported Wexner was in talks to step down as L Brands CEO while the company considers strategic alternatives for VS, including a sale. "For me, that was the first time on a runway that I felt really sexy". It was nearly like brainwashing.

Razek stepped down from the company in August and Wexner is, reportedly, looking to sell the company.

Razek called the accusations "categorically untrue".

VS's response: A spokesperson for L Brands said VS is "fully committed to continuous improvement and complete accountability" internally. "I have been fortunate to work with countless world-class models and talented professionals and I am proud of the mutual respect we have with each other".
