Laura Burns started this petition to Hyatt Hotels and

Something is wrong!

My story is not unique!  Most women have their own experience and story.  So often these experiences are never spoken of, never reported and we drown in grief and shame of what has happened to us and what people would say or think if they knew.

Enough is ENOUGH!  We need change and this will not happen by being quiet.

I’m a 37 year old woman, married for 15 years, mum to 2 beautiful children and a few short weeks ago I was in quarantine due to travel restrictions (thanks Covid 19) away from my family, alone at a 4 star hotel in the Maldives. On my third night on the Island where I was staying I was sexually assaulted by a staff member of the hotel.  This was 1 of 4 incidences in a matter of days I came to find out, mine being the most serious.  Upon looking deeper there are other crimes of this nature reported recently at this resort.

Traumatized and afraid to report what had happened, my attacker came banging on my villa door the next day in an attempt to gain entry and assault me again.  The next day - afraid, I reported what had happened to the management of the hotel. 

The manner in which the hotel had handled this is abysmal and I’ve shared more about this on my Facebook page:  Stepping forward against sexual abuse towards women and children.

THIS has HIGHLIGHTED the dangers people face and this petition is a CALL to ACTION in your life and area of influence.

This is an important message and we need to talk about this - heinous crimes are being committed on a daily basis in our societies against eachother and we are not acknowledging this and speaking up about this enough.

This is a topic for professional environments, discussions with friends and family and it is about the cultures we create, cultivate and TOLERATE!

We NEED to call out people, organizations and environments that facilitate and tolerate abusive behavior.

Will you step forward in your area of influence?

Sexual harassment, sexual assault or sexual abuse is something most women and children will experience at least once in their life.
