Debbie Harry, who entered the music biz in the late '60s, recalls that sexual harassment was just part of the job back then.
Talking about her just-released memoir Face It, Debbie tells the Los Angeles Times, "Those #MeToo experiences were when I was younger, and I expected that, felt it was part and parcel of being out in the world. I suppose it was frustrating, but nothing bad happened to me. I just felt that was natural. This is Mother Nature talking."
Blondie co-founder Chris Stein, who was Debbie's romantic partner from the early '70s until 1987, adds, "She would tell me, 'So-and-so hit on me' -- some famous guy -- and she’d be amused by it. In our day, women were conditioned to accept a lot of bad behavior from men and think it’s normal."
