Reckoning with #MeToo
< 1 day ago
On the heels of last week’s tidal wave of wins for Dems, what can we learn as we look ahead to the 2018 midterms and beyond? Michael Blake, an assemblyman who represents the Bronx in New York’s state assembly – and Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee – joins to discuss. Next, sexual harassment and sexual assault have been all over the headlines following a broad range of accusations against famed producer Harvey Weinstein (among many others), spurring a deeply charged national conversation about sexual harassment in the workplace – and what can be done about it. Rebecca speaks with Chai Feldblum, a commissioner at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the government agency charged with processing workplace sexual harassment claims. But first, following the House’s passage of the #TrumpTaxScam this week, Rebecca speaks with Chad Bolt of Indivisible to get the latest – and for tips on how to talk to your family about it at Thanksgiving.
