That was just the latest development in a week that started in Helsinki, where the president undermined his intelligence agencies on foreign soil, then saw him backtrack and flip-flop on his backtrack.

Then, In October 2017 actress Ashley Judd went public with her story of how Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed her in a hotel room. This opened the floodgates and women began sharing their own experiences with the hashtag #MeToo.
Since then, Judd has become an activist, fighting to protect women from harassment and abuse in the workplace and beyond. Diane talked to her at a recent fundraising event for the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW). They are a nonprofit that works to advance gender equity, inclusion and the alleviation of poverty worldwide. A recent focus for them is research to understand the true cost of sexual harassment, in the workplace and online.
