A bipartisan group of more than 140 of some of California's most powerful women -- including lawmakers, lobbyists and consultants -- are calling out pervasive sexual harassment in politics and across all industries, penning a public letter with one simple message: Enough.
The letter comes a week after revelations that one of Hollywood's most powerful men, Harvey Weinstein, had sexually harassed or abused dozens of women over decades in the movie business -- and as thousands of women are sharing their stories of abuse and harassment on social media, with a simple statement: "Me, too."
But Sacramento lobbyist Samantha Corbin, who helped coordinate the letter, said the issue had been percolating at the Capitol long before the Weinstein controversy broke.
"It elevated conversations that already happened under the radar between women colleagues and friends for years," said Corbin.
"It's a pretty regular thing in Sacramento," she added. "A lot of us are fed up with power dynamics that are not on our side."
