“after swimming and showering I was getting changed in the ladies locker room when a male cleaner came in!”

“Dear PoPville,

I experienced something extremely inappropriate at the Woodrow Wilson aquatic center this afternoon (Saturday) – after swimming and showering I was getting changed in the ladies locker room when a male cleaner came in! Most of us in there were fully undressed including some minor children. I asked the cleaner to leave but he just waved me off and continued cleaning. We all felt immensely violated and uncomfortable.

I went to speak to the manager who took it very leisurely ans just said that the “female
Cleaner is off today ”

Has this happened to anyone?

I’ve send an email to DPR but this just seems like an extremely big deal, borderline harassment.
Any suggestions what can be done to bring more attention to something like this?”
