Laursen, a former Hollywood assistant, spelled out the situation in a Facebook post on Tuesday, where she shared screenshots of his emails. According to her post, the movement encouraged women to take the day off work and refrain from spending money to help others realize their impact, while also raising awareness of pay inequality, wage gaps, and sexual harassment.
An email from her boss meant only for two of Laursen’s male coworkers that accidentally got forward to the whole team read: “Are you f—ing kidding me. At the end of pilot season. Someone should sew her vagina shut. I’m never hiring a girl ever again.”
