Congressional Democrats Unveil Their Answer To Me Too

“It is definitely the first comprehensive legislation addressing workplace harassment since Me Too,” said Maya Raghu, Director of Workplace Equality at the National Women’s Law Center and one of more than 30 civil rights, labor and women’s groups, including the ACLU, NAACP, and Time’s Up, that are backing the legislation,

Raghu said one of the most significant parts of the bill is that it extends civil rights protections to workers who are the most vulnerable to harassment ― part-time employees, so-called gig workers and, even, interns, who currently can’t file federal discrimination claims.
