Writing in the Seattle Times, a former First Lady of Washington state says that society should not forget the silent pain that comes from being sexually harassed.

I have been sexually harassed. Not once, not twice, but multiple times. And I’m not counting catcalls, offhand comments from strangers or the time I learned about a bet a group of male co-workers at one job made about who could sleep with me first.
It happened in the workplace. It happened in the political arena.
