As the number of men in prominent positions of power around the country are outed as sexual predators and losing their jobs and careers over it, we’ll spend the hour bringing you the voices of women who spoke at the recent #MeToo Surivors march in Hollywood. Among the speakers was Tarana Burke, the original founder of #MeToo, as well as the march founder Brenda Gutierrez, actress Francis Fisher, activist Ivy Quicho, journalist Jasmine Cannick, and others.
