After being sexually assaulted on an Erika Lust set; a feminist and “safe” porn set, with little to no structure for accountability or managing sexual violence after the fact, especially in the wake of the #MeToo movement, Rooster started advocating for better working standards, safer conditions and labour rights for performers and crew.
