ESPN’s Jen Lada Shares Her Story Of Sexual Harassment On Twitter, Know Her Career and Net Worth

Sexual harassment is the worst thing a woman can face in her life. Such activity can happen in any place like home, school or workplace. There are a lot of ladies who have faced such harassment in their lifetime, but they generally don’t reveal about it thinking it as a matter of shame. Similar is the case with ESPN’s sports anchor Jen Lada.

It took a lot of courage for Lada to reveal the tragic incident of her past. She opened up about it years after it happened. So what actually happened? Let’s find out.

Jen Lada chose Twitter to share her sexual harassment story

Lada revealed about her bitter past through her official Twitter account. She gained the courage to open up about her past due to Newsweek’s Lucy Westcott’s eye-opening article.

In her article, Westcott explained about the various types of sexual assault that takes place in the journalism industry irrelevant to gender. She also revealed that after reading her article 35 women and 2 men came out to tell her their stories. And so did Lada.
