Doutzen Kroes, Christy Turlington Burns and Edie Campbell are among those to sign an open letter to Victoria’s Secret urging them to protect its models against sexual harassment. Over 100 models have so far signed the document, which was also backed by the Time’s Up movement.
The letter asks Victoria’s Secret to agree to the Model Alliance’s Respect programme, which was conceived by models and formalises the ways models can make workplace complaints, creating an independent body in which to investigate those complaints.

The letter comes after charges made against convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who was linked with L Brands’ COO Leslie Wexner. L Brands owns Victoria’s Secret.
