Starting as back as 2003, the Orlando area woman said that she began receiving humiliating comments about her breasts in 2003, and they only got worse as the years passed.
Blakely alleges that supervisors made repeated references to her large breasts, including that they were too “distracting,” in meetings, that they should be hidden in future gatherings and that men only wanted to sit next to her to get a better look at her breasts.
Blakely said that she was made to feel very ashamed of the way she looked. She even started using side doors and hide from managers. She also said that she was told she was “too sensual” to receive a promotion.
Of course, The Deveraux Foundation denies the allegations in an issue statement:
[The allegations] are purposefully inflammatory, and either spurious or twisted in content and context. In no way do these allegations represent the truth about our organization or our staff, but here is what does. We have a deep and abiding respect for women in our organization, as evidenced by the fact that more than 50 percent of our senior leadership team is female.
To fight back, Blakely has hired famed victim rights attorney Gloria Allred.
“She should never have been terminated,” Allred stated. “She should never have been retaliated against for filing those grievances protesting unlawful sexual discrimination, and that is why we are fighting back with a lawsuit.”
