Mar 15, 2019 —
It was never my intention to become an activist going after a big corporation like TripAdvisor. In fact, I decided to remain anonymous for this campaign because I didn’t feel comfortable using my real name to talk about such an intimate and traumatizing experience – and I’m worried that given my pending court case, going public about it could alert my attacker before the police can arrest him.
But after working with the Guardian to investigate over 40 allegations of assault against businesses on TripAdvisor, I decided that I had to do something. It wasn’t just me – sexual assault survivors around the world are being ignored by TripAdvisor.
It’s long past time TripAdvisor took real, meaningful action to warn and protect its users against sexual assault.
We know that this company cares about its brand, and has responded to public pressure before. I am convinced that if enough of us raise our voices and share our stories, they will have to listen.
Do you have an experience with TripAdvisor ignoring sexual assault allegations against a business it promotes? If so, I hope you’ll consider sharing by leaving a comment or emailing email@example.com. Please indicate if you’d like your story to remain anonymous – we promise to respect your request.
We’ll elevate your stories to show just how widespread this problem is, and to demand that TripAdvisor hear our voices.
