In the early 1980s, Cheryl Gomez used to work for the Detroit Police Department. However, in 1982, she complained about verbal abuse, written epithets, and receiving death threats.

To her dismay, her then-commanding officer, Mack Douglass, didn’t take any action against the abuse; instead, he made a se*ual approach towards her.

Following the incident, she quit the Police Department and started working as a first-ever female street patrol.

Two years of working as a street patrol drained her, and she could not take her mind off of Mack Douglass’s incident.

So, to get justice, she filed a se*ual harassment lawsuit in 1984. After three long years, in 1987, she won the case and received $800,000 in a Jury trial.

Gomez has been fighting against this issue since then. To raise her voice against the issue, she founded an association in 1990 with the aim of helping out the victims.

Moreover, she co-wrote the book When No Means No: How To Protect Yourself From Se*ual Harassment.
