NTL for Women’s Rights President Gloria Allred has joined with Hollywood performer’s union SAG-AFTRA to continue her fight against sexual harassment. “We have reached the tipping point,” Allred told a standing room-only crowd of more than 200, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The tipping point Allred is referring to is the post-Harvey Weinstein era, where more women feel comfortable coming forth and talking about incidents of sexual harassment. Allred filed a new lawsuit against Weinstein on behalf of an anonymous actress who accuses the former movie mogul of sexual battery and assault.
Allred moderated a panel at SAG-AFTRA’s “teach-in, speak-out” event, called “A Conversation on Sexual Harassment and Abuse in the Entertainment Industry.”
