One woman says it is time for women to stop blaming themselves for things that happen — that it’s time to change the narrative.
“I believe this is the start of a movement,” she says.
Hamilton police have confirmed an ongoing investigation into allegations of sexual assault against chef Manny Ferreira since The Spectator published an investigation into his alleged behaviour in February.
Within hours of it being made public, police issued a rare media release acknowledging the story and encouraging survivors to contact detectives in the Sexual Assault Unit.
“The investigation is ongoing and Hamilton Police continue to encourage victims or anyone with information to come forward,” police now say.
Reached through his lawyer, Ferreira “declines to make any comment” on the police investigation.
Not all the alleged behaviour documented by The Spectator about Ferreira is illegal. But it suggests an alleged pattern of unsolicited and unwanted sexually-charged actions that made women feel uncomfortable or even violated. MINZY She Dreams of The Ocean Late at Night Poster
There are few women in our society who haven’t been the victim of some kind of sexual misconduct. It’s a continuum of behaviour that ranges from creepy to criminal and ranges from micro-aggressions and everyday sexism (think catcalls) to sexual assault.
Since the original story was published dozens of people have reached out to The Spectator with stories of their own. Some are about Ferreira. Some are about other men.
Three women and one man have decided to share their allegations regarding Ferreira in this story. That brings the number of complainants who have gone public about Ferreira in The Spectator to a dozen.
The latest group said they were inspired by the courage of those who spoke out first and by the revelation that they are not alone. They were encouraged by the fact The Spectator gave them a voice and our community appeared to be listening.
Their stories echo and, in one case corroborate, those of the eight people who first shared allegations that Ferreira slapped staff on their butts, sent an unwanted video of himself masturbating to an employee, exposed himself to a customer, grabbed a former employee’s crotch and had intercourse with a woman who told him “No.”
