Following regulations that were issued on Friday, The Verge is reporting that Wonder Woman 2 will be the first film to utilize the Producers Guild of America’s anti-sexual harassment guidelines, a response to the overwhelming number of Hollywood encounters that have recently been made public. These instructions have been put into place to better help all those working on a given picture recognize and combat sexual harassment.
“Producers possess authority both on and off the set, and can provide key leadership in creating and sustaining work environments that are built on mutual respect,” PGA presidents Gary Lucchesi and Lori McCreary said in a statement.
For starters, the PGA’s guidelines suggest that each production adheres to federal and state laws, while allowing for numerous reporting procedures and providing all team members with in-person anti-sexual harassment training. In addition, there are protocols for victims, witnesses, and producers.
Again, Wonder Woman 2 is now the first film to adopt the PGA’s anti-sexual harassment regulations, as you can visit The Verge for more on the story.
