Jewel Has Been Sexually Harassed Since She Was 8 Years Old

Jewel refers to the music industry as “a very male-dominated business,” but says she “never slept [her] way to the top.”

“There was never one time I’ve ever compromised anything. I was always willing to walk away…You know, I’ve heard plenty of stories that the opposite happens. I saw what women would give up for a compliment. I felt men were willing to take advantage if they saw something vulnerable.”

“At 8, I had men putting dimes in my hands saying, ‘Call me. It’d be so great to f— when you’re older.’ And just horrible stuff.”
