Ashley Judd slams ‘everyday sexism’ after airport security run-in




The actress slammed an airport employee for referring to her by the pet name “sweetheart.”, as well as putting his hands on her.

“This is the kind of thing to me that happens which I categorize as everyday sexism. And it is so easy to let it go and not to speak up, particularly when it is so easy for someone to push back and say, ‘Oh, I was just being polite.’"

“I’m very happy to report that the manager with which I spoke immediately apologized. … He had a very long conversation with the employee and he also assured me that their training … is to call people ‘sir’ and ‘madam,’ and that touching someone is totally inappropriate.”
