“We Must Sometimes Take Blame, Women” – Angela Lansbury on Sexual Harassment
She’s not politically correct, but she’s right.

Good, now that we have that out of the way, let’s be real. Actions have consequences. Those consequences are rarely what we want, but they exist nonetheless.
If you dress in a sexually provocative manner, you might be sexually harassed. It happens.
As long as humans have hormones, and the genetic imperative to procreate, sexual harassment will exist.
Sexual harassment comes from men, women, and probably those with imaginary genders. It’s just the way it is, and the way it always will be. Sure, we can mitigate the stupidity, but as long as humans are humans, they’re going to continue doing stupid things.
At a time when Hollywood is grappling with mounting allegations of sexual harassment and assault, Angela Lansbury says she believes women must, at least partially, be held accountable in instances of harassment.
In an interview with Radio Times, the actress who played Jessica Fletcher in the television series Murder, She Wrote, said women are to some degree responsible.
“There are two sides to this coin,” Lansbury, 92, said. “We have to own up to the fact that women, since time immemorial, have gone out of their way to make themselves attractive. And unfortunately it has backfired on us — and this is where we are today.
“We must sometimes take blame, women,” she continued. “I really do think that. Although it’s awful to say we can’t make ourselves look as attractive as possible without being knocked down and raped.”
However, Lansbury does not believe harassment is exculpatory. “Should women be prepared for this? No, they shouldn’t have to be!” she said. “There’s no excuse for that. And I think it will stop now – it will have to. I think a lot of men must be very worried at this point.”
