BBC’s Martha Kearney recalls ‘humiliating’ harassment – BBC News

BBC presenter Martha Kearney has recalled the “horrible and humiliating” sexual harassment she experienced as a young journalist.
Kearney, a new host on Radio 4’s Today programme, revealed men touched her bottom while she was an LBC Westminster correspondent in the 1980s.
She said she regrets not confronting her bosses, and hopes the #MeToo campaign will make a difference.
“I wish I’d felt stronger, less intimidated,” she told the Radio Times.
“But in my 20s bosses were powerful people.”
