Amal Clooney attends in Givenchy the Massachusetts Conference for Women 06.12.2018

Amal Clooney is sharing her past experiences with “unwanted advances” in the workplace.

She spoke about her experiences in the workplace at the Massachusetts Conference for Women in Boston to a crowd of about 12,000 people on Thursday during a Q&A with her father, journalist Nick Clooney.

Nick, 84, asked his daughter-in-law if she had ever experienced sexual harassment in the workplace to which she said, “Yes.”

“In the sense of unwanted advances that were inappropriate and awkward to deal with,” she explained. “Yes. And I think at the time, I would not have felt comfortable speaking out about it because other [women in similar situations] weren’t, and so I think that’s changed now.”

As for how it’s become different, the mother of two shared she felt her 18-month-old daughter Ella would have the opportunity to work in more pleasant environments.

“I believe that we are living through a defining moment in the fight for gender equality,” said Clooney, addressing the 12,000 women gathered for the day’s sessions.

  1. She’s wearing a ‘calf leather skirt’???? For someone who is a role model to many women this is a very poor/insensitive/ignorant choice of clothing material! Moreover, why do we need to see her legs all the way up to her hip in conferences for women, by women? We’re so often forced to sign work contracts that force women to comply with sexist dress codes, such as high heels, etc…and here is a powerful woman who could break that mold…what a missed opportunity (again!)…very sad and disappointing.

      1. Doesn’t she ever get cold? It’s December and she doesn’t wear a coat outside or wear sleeves. She must be a unicorn like George likes for people to believe.

      2. What would you say if all those things were in plastic instead of leather? And what about all those other outfits you’ve posted where she has bags, shoes, jackets, dresses made of leather. Human beings have been wearing leather and fur for centuries when plastics weren’t around. There are other larger violations going on in this world and she’s working hard and doing her part to ameliorate those. A little bit more perspective is needed here. You’re doing a fine blog about this lady. Very few people can work their mind around the phenomenon of her life. Dont get dragged down by the distractions.

  2. I don’t care for this outfit on Amal or anyone else. I don’t understand what the designer had in mind with this ensemble.

    Re: the issue of sexual harassment in the workplace, it has been going on for a long time. I am much older than Amal and I and others reported this to management years ago.It was difficult to do so and for sure, management put an impossible burden on those of us who reported this to provide evidence. but at least we advocated for ourselves. I am reading an autobiography by Joan Collins-she is much older than I- and this kind of behavior was rampant in her day and per her book she didn’t put up with this nonsense from men in the entertainment industry either. I am rather surprised that Amal, who is an attorney, would not feel comfortable confronting this kind of behavior.

  3. I’m sure many of the outfits she wears are made in sweatshops. I don’t know why she continues to wear materials that harm animals and cost more than most people make in a year.

    1. Chances are good that if one wears environmentally-conscious clothing, one would not get the kind of attention from the runway designers or from the reporters that Amal does. She is so consumed with the mainstay fashion, that she is disconnected from the reality of animal rights. They say that how a country treats animals can tell you about how it treats its people. Look at China and the abhorred mistreatment of dogs. Amal is disconnected from this reality with her furs, feathers and skins. Perhaps one day when she feels more secure about her physical appearance, she will not be such a clothes victim of the high end designers and will be brave enough to use fashion for a more meaningful purpose rather than purely to get more attention. She could learn something from some of her fashion collaborators like Stella Mccartney and Donatello Versace who have committee to no longer using certain animal-derived products in their retail lines.
