Washington Redskins Hit With Massive Sex Harassment Scandal


The Washington DC NFL football franchise is back in the news but not because of a name change. It's a whole new crisis for the team as 15 former female employees of the team told "The Washington Post" that they were sexually harassed while working for the organization.

The allegations, which reportedly ran from 2006 to 2019, included unwelcomed overtures or comments of a sexual nature, demands they wear revealing clothing, and flirting with clients to close sales deals. None of the 15 women accused owner Daniel Snyder or former team president Bruce Allen of inappropriate behavior, however, the women believed that they both must have known that these behaviors were happening.

The team announced in a statement that it hired Washington D.C. attorney Beth Wilkinson "to conduct a thorough independent review of this allegations and help the team set new employee standards for the future."
