A Week of Sexual Assault in Toronto

Const. Firouzeh "Effy" Zarabi-Majd says in her human rights complaint that her story of enduring harassment and abuse “is only one among many stories of women officers” in the Toronto Police Service.

During her nearly decade-long stint as a Toronto police officer, Const. Firouzeh “Effy” Zarabi-Majd alleges she has endured “demeaning, sexist, racist and Islamophobic comments” and regular sexual harassment — discrimination that’s enabled by a “culture in which misogyny and racism are normalized,” she claims.

Zarabi-Majd’s allegations are detailed in a claim filed with Ontario’s Human Rights Tribunal last week, in which the 37-year-old Iranian-Canadian alleges workplace discrimination based on gender, race, ethnic origin and more during her time at 51 Division, a busy downtown detachment. -The Toronto Star
