In light of the controversy surrounding Harvey Weinstein and his alleged sexual assults and sexual harrassment, the Loose Women addressed their stories of bullying in the workplace live on Wednesday’s show.
The panellists, Linda Robson, Andrea McLean, Janet Street-Porter, and Saira Khan, opened up in a candid chat about their experiences of those in power abusing their position – with some revealing that they’d been through horrific incidences.
Saira Khan in particular made reference to a moment early in her career when she was treated with disrespect by a ‘household name’ female TV presenter.
Talking to her fellow panellists, she shared, “I’ve had experiences of woman bullying me in the workplace and it is completely unacceptable.
“There was one particular incident – obviously I can’t name the person – but before she’d even come into the studio she’d told everyone not to make any eye contact with her.”
“This is allowed to happen – she’s a household name!”
