Meanwhile, in Hollywood, California, hundreds took part in the “Me Too Survivors’ March” on Sunday. Participants included 21-year-old Tara McNamara of Los Angeles.

Tara McNamara: “Every woman in my life that I’ve ever known has been sexually assaulted or sexually harassed. I’ve been sexually assaulted. I’ve been raped. I’ve been sexually assaulted multiple times throughout my life. It’s affected me in every like aspect of my life. It’s given me major depression. I always have tried to speak out about these things, and there’s always been kind of this awkwardness around it or hesitation with people to speak about it. This is really cleansing.”
