15 women accused Washington Redkins top officials of sexual harassment

The Washington Post on Thursday published a report in which Washington Redskins employees accused the team of sexual harassment and verbal abuse of female employees.


The allegations range from 2006 to 2019, according to the newspaper, and range from verbal abuse to instances of inappropriate comments about the body or clothing of female employees. The post also details allegations of sexual harassment from two female journalists, one of whom still includes the team.

  • Several members of the organization resigned or were fired after they came in contact with the team regarding the allegations.
  • Richard Mann II and Alex Santos, longtime members of the team's personnel department, were fired over the weekend according to several reports. Larry Michael, the team's longest-serving radio voice, announced his sudden retirement after 16 seasons with the club.
  • Washington's NFL team, which finished last season at 3-13, has made significant turnover at the organization's highest level over the past year.

This is not the first time the team has been accused of abusing its female employees. A 2018 report by the New York Times detailed a visit to Costa Rica in which Washington Redskins cheerleaders said they were asked to participate in a photoshoot in the presence of sponsors of the male team.
