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.
