Female politicians say sexual harassment is also a problem in Sacramento.
Local assemblywoman Laura Friedman is one of 140 women launching an anti sexual harassment campaign called “We Said Enough.”
“It’s important that we as women kind of stand up together as women and say we’re not going to take it anymore. And, that we are going to stand up and we are going to stand up and be willing to name names. And, put our male colleagues on notice that enough is enough and hopefully make men realize that some of the behavior they might have thought was acceptable is really not acceptable.”
She went on to say they will no longer tolerate harassment or abuse in the political establishment.
Scores of women, in light of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, have turned to social media. Many are using the hashtag #MeToo, to publicly profess that they have been sexually assaulted or harassed in the past. The movement has brought attention to sexual harassment on college campuses, in Hollywood and in corporate America.
Friedman was a guest on McIntyre in the Morning.
