U.S. Air Force Review Finds 1 in 3 Servicewomen Face Sexual Harassment

  U.S. Air Force Review Finds 1 in 3 Servicewomen Face Sexual Harassment Among men and women who reported incidents of sexual harassment, nearly 75 percent said they were unsatisfied with the complaint process. More than 40 percent of female service members said that they were treated worse after filing a complaint and 38 percent were told to drop the issue. The review confirmed an earlier finding by the Department of Defense that sexual assault is an underreported crime. A number of females respondents who said they experienced sexual harassment told the Inspector General that they did not trust the chain of command to address the behaviors or feared retribution.

Kevin Spacey was spotted on a solo lunch outing in West Hollywood amid his ongoing sexual assault lawsuit.

The 62-year-old actor, who donned a hat and sunglasses, was seen grabbing a bite to eat and reading a book on Tuesday.

Spacey has faced multiple sexual misconduct accusations since Anthony Rapp first came forward in 2017. He was later fired from "House of Cards" over the allegations.

The actor was also replaced in the movie, "All The Money In The World."


Spacey's solo outing came days before a court heard an oral argument on the actor's legal team's motion to exclude evidence before it is offered at trial.

James Franco Agrees to Pay $2.2 Million to Settle Sexual Misconduct Lawsuit

  James Franco Agrees to Pay $2.2 Million to Settle Sexual Misconduct Lawsuit A Los Angeles judge still needs to approve the settlement.Back in February, ET confirmed that Franco reached a settlement in a 2019 lawsuit by former students at his now-defunct Studio 4 acting school. The suit was filed by two women, Sarah Tither-Kaplan and Toni Gaal, who accused Franco of creating an environment of harassment and sexual exploitation. Franco's attorney, Michael Plonsker, denied the claims in a previous statement to ET.


The hearing was scheduled for 3 p.m. on Thursday via video conference before Judge Lewis A. Kaplan.

Rapp filed the lawsuit against the "House of Cards" star in September 2020.

In the lawsuit, Rapp detailed what he has said publicly about Spacey, that the older actor made a sexual advance to him when a teenage Rapp attended a party. When Rapp first made the accusation, Spacey issued a statement saying he didn’t remember the encounter but apologized.

Rapp initially filed the lawsuit with a co-plaintiff who went by the initials C.D. However, the judge dismissed C.D.'s accusations after the co-plaintiff failed to publicly disclose his identity. Rapp, however, is moving to trial.
