“The guild of women journalists of El Salvador expressed this Friday [March 19] its rejection of a statement supposedly given by a female judge in a criminal proceeding prompted by a colleague and that, in its opinion, normalizes sexual harassment.


The controversy came after the initial hearing in the criminal process Jaime Perla faced on March 17 for allegedly sexually harassing reporter Wendy Hernández, of the government's Channel 10 during a live broadcast.

Hernández told her colleagues that the judge told her that 'she should be used to that type of comment' because of her position as a journalist. 'It was a very unfortunate situation,' said the television reporter, who pointed out that 'harassment on social networks has increased' against her."
