Macho culture makes women leave SF Studios – Aftonbladet

SF’s management says that you do not recognize themselves in the description that there is a sexist guy culture.

But since 2013, some twenty women decided to leave production , reports SVT Kulturnyheterna.

– There is a fundamentally tough macho culture, which for instance is okay to brag that you hire escort girls, says a woman who has chosen to leave.

2013 took Jonas Fors, president of the SF Studios. Since then, some twenty women, several high-ranking positions, stopped because of the crude and sexist jargon, reports SVT Kulturnyheterna.

– It’s a bullying culture, sexism and bullying, paired with a business morals shabby, says one of the women to the channel.

another says it’s okay to brag that you hire escort girls. She also says that it is not possible to question the behavior if you want to be left behind.

– This boils in the freezer, because it becomes so difficult if you want to remain. Either you have to like the situation and find a way to relate to it, or you have to leave, she said to SVT Kulturnyheterna. READ ALSO SF Studios responds to criticism
