Sexual Harassment in the Publishing Industry

May 12th, 2018

Philadelphia sexual harassment lawyers fight for victims who have experienced sexual harassment in the publishing industry.Sexual harassment is in the news every day. What began as a sensationalized story of sexual harassment in the entertainment industry quickly spread into heart-wrenching accounts from every industry. Some of the most recent accounts involve scandalous stories in the publishing industry.

Even among prominent authors, including an award-winning novelist, it appears that there is no haven that is completely free of sexual harassment. Accounts of rampant degenerative behavior in the publishing industry has resulted in boycotts in bookstores, expulsions from writers’ conferences, and even cancelled book deals.

Since cancelled book deals may represent legal challenges for publishers, some are adapting by changing their contracts considering the latest news. Some have expanded the use of morals and author conduct clauses in book contracts, allowing them to legally cancel book deals when an author is credibly accused of misconduct.

The predatory behavior that defines sexual harassment is not about sex, but power. Those who have abused their powerful positions in the publishing industry are now feeling a backlash, as they are in other industries.
