Brian was the top journalist in Chicago, he worked for the biggest publication in the city, he had won so many awards, but the one award that eluded him was the biggest, the Pulitzer Prize, he searched all over the world to get the article that could get him into the running, but nothing looked worthy.

One day while searching his files he started reaserching the biggest trends, hoping to find something he could write about to gain the elusive award, after hours of searching he was about to give up, when he saw something that caught his eye.

Woman accuses man of Sexual Harassment.

That was what was important to todays readers, that was something he could get his teeth into, so he set off to find someone who would talk to him about a high profile man, who had sexually harassed them, the bigger the profile of the man, the bigger the story, woman after woman came forward but none were willing to talk to him about their case,

“Whats wrong with these women?” He thought, why wont they talk to me about these sometimes vicious attacks, if he could get their stories out there he could get these guys locked up where they belong, He looked at the clock, it was 7:30pm, he decided to go home, it had been a long day and his sister was coming over for dinner that night, maybe he could talk to her and she would have an insight as to why they stayed silent.

Diana, his sister arrived around 8:00, she had brought a pizza, it wouldnt be what she would normally do but she said she had had a rough day at work, Brian was more interested in his day than his sisters day, so most of what she said had gone over his head, after dinner he asked her why it was that women wouldnt talk about their experiences of sexual harassment, he was shocked to see her burst into tears.

”Havent you been listening to anything I've said tonight, Brian started to think back from when she arrived, he couldnt think of anything that would make her cry, but he knew he had only listened to half of it, he hugged his sister, there was nothing that up set him more than his sister being upset, “Ok” he said “Lets start again Di” he sat her down in the living room and got her a fresh glass of wine.

“Whats really up sis” he asked

”You ask me why women dont come forward to report sexual harassment?  
I’ll tell you why, “Men” are why we dont come forward” she said.

I gave her my sideways glance that says I dont understand.

“Men dont listen” she almost shouted, “I told you I had had a bad day but all you wanted to talk about was you and your day, the reason I had a bad day, was that Mr. Johnson grabbed my boobs while no one was looking, so no witness=no offence,” “Did you report him” I asked, “YOUR NOT LISTENING BRIAN.”

“NO WITNESS=NO OFFENCE”

This really got to me, and I couldnt sleep that night, how could I catch this creep in the act, its not like I could be there holding a camera and a microphone, I had to get someone into his office to witness this guy in the act, but who could I get that I could trust not to mess it up, it would have to be someone who understands microphones and hidden secret cameras, someone like me but a woman.....

Then it came to me.

I thought I had done a pretty good job of making myself look like a woman, so I called my sister over to try it out,  Diana knocked at the door and I opened it, she walked right passed me and said “Where are you going, to a fancy dress party?”

My heart sank it had taken me hours to look like this and she saw right through me, I didnt even get a chance to try out my best girlie voice, so what now?

Sexual Harassment, Top Story everywhere
