Washington Post: Female Employees of Washington’s NFL Team Describe Toxic Work Atmosphere

Fifteen former female employees of Washington’s NFL team faced “relentless sexual harassment and verbal abuse that was ignored – and, in some cases, condoned – by top team executives,” according to a just-released article in The Washington Post.

Those accused include the director and assistant director of pro personnel, the senior vice president of content and the radio voice of the team, the former president of business operations and the former chief operating officer.

The article details an atmosphere in which the women had to contend with crude comments and suggestions and humiliation.

These revelations come as the team’s announced on Monday that it would change their controversial name after losing financial sponsors, including Fed Ex, but still hasn’t announced its new name.
