Insight: ‘We Said Enough,’ One Year Later

On Oct. 17, 2017, the Los Angeles Times published a letter‘signed by more than 150 women who work in California politics, describing a culture of sexual harassment in the California Capitol.

One year later, we’re marking the anniversary of the We Said Enough movement that was sparked by this letter. On Insight today, we will be joined by women who have been a part of the movement against sexual harassment in California.

We are joined by We Said Enough’s President and Co-Founder Adama Iwu and Executive Director Samantha Corbin to talk about their organization one year later. We also speak with Dr. Lin Farley, who coined the term “sexual harassment” in the 1970s, about the halting progress made against workplace harassment. Finally, Sacramento State Professor Kim Nalder previews an event this week about #MeToo, California and the Year of the Woman 2.0 in honor of the anniversary.

Rather, it took a steady progression over the course of more than 75 years for the form to fully understand, and then harness, its powers. When the first comics arrived on newsstands in the early 1930s, they were a cynical attempt to put old wine in new bottles by reprinting popular newspaper comic strips. Cheaply printed and barely edited, those pamphlets were not what a critic at the time would have called high art.
