Current Topic


     02/18 - Drawing the Line: Sexual Harassment in Louisiana

How widespread is the problem in our state? Take the survey!
Governor John Bel Edward’s deputy chief of staff, Johnny Anderson, resigned in November due to allegations of sexual harassment. A month earlier, celebrity chef John Besh stepped down from his restaurant management group after sexual harassment accusations. Charges of sexual misconduct in the workplace against celebrities and government officials made state and national headlines during the last several months of 2017.

How widespread is the problem in our state? Where is the distinction drawn between boorish acts and abusive behavior? Is every circumstance unique or should all offenders be dealt with in the same manner? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Drawing the Line: Sexual Harassment in Louisiana” Wednesday, February 28 at 7 p.m. on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, February 27)

Panelists:
- Sen. Sharon Hewitt, R-Slidell; Senate Select Committee on Women and Children
- Craig Broome; Louisiana Society of Human Resource
- Janice Lansing, Chairperson of Governor Edwards’ Sexual Harassment & Discrimination Policy Task Force
- Allison A. Jones; attorney; Downer, Jones & Wilhite in Shreveport
