An Important Step Forward For #MeToo

This year saw some important advances for #MeToo. The US Congress passed two bills, now signed into law, that protect the rights of women who come forward to report sexual abuse in the workplace–and make it harder for companies to try to silence them.

Two members of Congress who pushed that legislation through the House, Rep. Cheri Bustos and Rep. Lois Frankel, join this episode to explain the far-reaching consequences of the new laws. 

Then Fatima Goss Graves, president and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center, and Bloomberg’s Equality editor Rebecca Greenfield give a broader view of how much has changed in the five years since #MeToo went viral–and how much more needs to be done.
