Gordon told the Information that Weiner’s remark shook her confidence, but she didn’t tell anyone at the time for fear of losing her job. “I had the Emmy, but instead of being able to use that as a launch pad for the rest of my career, it became an anchor because I felt I had to answer to speculative stories in the press,” she said. “I eventually walked away instead of fighting back.”

Gordon has not worked in television since leaving Mad Men, and has launched a nonprofit organization aimed at educating women and helping them deal with sexual harassment. Weiner won seven Emmys and three Golden Globes for his work on the show, and is currently developing the AMC show The Romanoffs.

Michelle Pfeiffer Blasts Hollywood for ‘Systemic’ Sexual Harassment: ‘I’ve Had Some Experiences’

  Michelle Pfeiffer Blasts Hollywood for ‘Systemic’ Sexual Harassment: ‘I’ve Had Some Experiences’ "There really hasn't been one woman that I've talked to who hasn't had an experience," actress tells the BBC"I have never worked with Harvey," she said, speaking of Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused by more than 90 women of sexual harassment, assault or rape. "I have had some experiences and, I have to say, since this has all come out there really hasn't been one woman that I've talked to who hasn't had an experience. And it just really goes to show you how systemic the problem is.

Kater Gordon , a former writer on the popular TV show, said in an interview with The Information on Thursday that Weiner harassed her during a light night in the office. She is now creating a nonprofit to help victims of sexual harassment .

The report of Gordon’s allegation came as part of a cascading series of allegations of sexual harassment and assault against a number of powerful figures in Hollywood, including producer Harvey Weinstein, comedian Louis C.K., and actor Kevin Spacey. No allegations of physical assault have been made against Weiner, and Gordon’s is the first instance of a harassment claim against the TV writer.

A spokesperson for Weiner issued the following statement: “Mr. Weiner spent eight to ten hours a day writing dialogue aloud with Miss Gordon, who started on Mad Men as his writers assistant. He does not remember saying this comment nor does it reflect a comment he would say to any colleague.”

Gordon’s allegations also came on the heels of the release of Weiner’s first novel, Heather, The Totality, published on November 7. The novel follows a wealthy couple and their daughter whose privileged lives are disrupted when their neighbors begin construction on their apartment. In an interview with GQ published earlier in the day on November 9, Weiner spoke about misogyny and objectification in the novel, saying that “A feminist reading of this book should take it for what it is. To revel in misogyny and present it, and to say that I’m being critical of it, has never been my goal. I’ve been unapologetically critical of it.”
