Los Angeles Times: As the legislative year ends, the #MeToo movement shows its influence
The Los Angeles Times spoke with Executive Director Noreen Farrell about Equal Rights Advocates’ slate of anti-sexual harassment bills in California in light of the #MeToo movement.
“It has been a moment to seize, and seize it we have,” said Noreen Farrell, executive director of Equal Rights Advocates, a women’s rights group.
“Legislators were practically falling over themselves to be aligned with #MeToo legislation this year,” Farrell said. …The extension of the filing deadline [AB 1870], Farrell said, “is a powerful example of a bill that would’ve never gotten traction but for this movement. It implicates potentially thousands more claims being filed that would’ve been dead in the water.”
