Elizabeth Cooper was mentioned in a Women’s Wear Daily article about a bill to protect fashion models who face sexual harassment.
Model Alliance founder Sara Ziff, a former model, noted that she and other models have spoken about “the systematic sexual harassment and abuse on the job — and yet, powerful individuals have tried to silence us and tacitly given approval that this behavior is OK.”
Diff said she met Rozic through the National Eating Disorders Association, an organization that the Model Alliance has partnered with on past efforts to address the problem of eating disorders in the modeling industry. “My work on this bill actually started about two years ago, when the Model Alliance partnered with the Legal Clinic at Fordham Law School on a research project. I worked with professor Elizabeth Cooper and her students to explore pathways to address models’ concerns, including sexual harassment. The Models’ Harassment Protection Act grew out of our research together,” she said.
