Sexual Assault In The Modeling Industry

Model Sara Ziff has braved what may soon be a backlash to expose rampant sexual assault in the modeling industry. In the documentary, Picture Me, she referenced a photographer age 45 who made a pass at a 16 year old model - worse her agency said, "she should have slept with him"!!

Thus far no black models have been named in the documentary, however this problem crosses racial boundaries and ALL models should be aware of what they are willing to accept as normal and unacceptable behavior from agencies, photographers, make up artists, etc. I hope this video helps the models who second guessed their decisions and those who have been too afraid to come out.
