Amy-Erin Blakely Statement

It was very humiliating to know that certain senior members of management would focus on my breasts instead of my performance on the job.

It made me feel as though I should be ashamed of the way that I looked and of my body.

When certain individuals on the management team were in town that I had reason to believe had made remarks about my figure I would use a side door to enter and exit and hide from those managers because I did not want to be subjected to more humiliation.

No woman should ever be subjected to such sexist and derogatory remarks.

I am a highly competent professional woman and I asked only to be judged on my merit.

Instead, I seemed to be judged on my looks and the size of my breasts.

That is wrong and that is why I have decided to file my case. I refuse to be a victim of the Devereux Foundation any longer.

Instead I choose to stand up for my rights and in doing so, I hope to improve the lives and working conditions of other women.
