Mad Men writer Kater Gordon has courageously spoken out about the sexual harassment she faced from showrunner Matthew Weiner. Inspired to come forward after reading the allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Gordon is committed to working towards a cultural shift on sexual violence and harassment through her newly launched nonprofit, Modern Alliance. She describes Modern Alliance’s mission below:
Our culture is shifting as courageous people come forward to challenge those who abuse their power. But solutions are still lacking. Victims without wealth or public influence remain silent, fearing for their reputations, their jobs, and potential retaliation. Others are uninformed or overwhelmed, and they have no idea what to do.
Modern Alliance is a growing coalition of the most forward-thinking organizations, researchers, and creatives working together to protect people from destructive, predatory behavior. We will fund research, create original content, and champion online platforms that empower and educate.
