I never wanted to seek publicity about Bloomberg’s threats and was terrified of financial ruin. I have never written about my experience before. I am speaking out now because unlike so many other women, I am not bound by an NDA. Given the large number of women silenced by NDAs, there has been an environment of sexism at Bloomberg’s company. Bloomberg lawyers treated me as though I were a piece of company property, an appendage of my husband, using intimidation and threats to try to bully me into submission. I agonized over whether to sign the NDA. I haven’t met any of the other women, but I imagine that they may have experienced the same terror of being threatened by a multibillion-dollar corporation, which could ruin their lives if they did not comply. Even now, I am nervous about the consequences of speaking out. But the more of us speak out, the stronger we are.
