A SERIES of six short films, produced by David Schwimmer, has been released as part of a new campaign to combat sexual harassment, titled #ThatsHarassment.

"I grew up with stories of sexual harassment from my mom," the actor and director said of his involvement with the initiative in an interview with Cosmopolitan. "Every woman in my family, in my life, has been harassed, except my daughter, thank god, who’s only six."

The films show real-life stories - titled The Actor, The Boss, The Coworker, The Doctor, The Photographer and The Politician - portraying different types of harassment. As well as being the executive producer on the project, Schwimmer stars in one of the films. Cynthia Nixon, Emmy Rossum and Michael Kelly also make appearances.

“When you’ve been objectified your entire life and become accustomed to being a second-class citizen in many, many ways - constantly told that you aren’t worth the same as men, basically, and that your body comes first, or what you look like comes first - it makes a lot more sense to me that a lot of women don’t even recognise when they’re being harassed. Because you spend your whole life not being treated with the kind of respect that men are automatically given.”
