Woman Who Complains About Sexism At Work Is Taped To A Chair And Gagged By Male Coworkers

By Shannon Walsh

A woman who says she experienced more than a decade of bullying at her job claims that male coworkers gagged her and taped her to a chair after she complained about misogyny and racism in the workplace in 2010.

DeeAnn Fitzpatrick, 49, was working as a fisheries officer in Scotland when the alleged incident occurred. 

Emails obtained by the BBC show that Fitzpatrick reported the incident to a manager who "promised to have a word" with the men responsible. The manager told Fitzpatrick, "I am sure they meant no harm and that was the boys just being boys,” according to Newsweek.
