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.
