Let's separate what was appropriate for Patston to do as someone sexually harassed in the workplace and what would have been best for her job, the Wallabies and the ARU.
A big problem in my view was that Patston was answerable to McKenzie due to the way things were structured. Ideally, those in a managerial role within the team should have been answerable to Pulver.
As someone new to the role trying to fit in with the playing group, I can understand her not wanting to make an issue of it. I can also understand her not wanting to make an issue of it because she was deeply hurt and embarassed.
It doesn't mean those responses were the best way for the situation to be handled for her or for the other parties involved.
Ultimately, it's hard to imagine a worse outcome for all concerned.
I can easily imagine it would have been a worse outcome for both Beale and the author of the text on the second image if Patston had made an official complaint at the time. Very likely, both would have been ejected from the Wallabies' squad at that time, and probably that should have been the right and proper outcome.
