ABC-7 Xtra: How the ‘Me Too’ movement…

Despite being almost a year since the “Me Too” movement took social media by storm, it’s still playing a part in sexual harassment cases.

It began when sexual assault accusations surfaced against Hollywood star Harvey Weisntein last November.

The allegations prompted “#MeToo” to be one of social media’s most trending topics. It also prompted other accusers to publicize their sexual harassment accusations, a lot of them being alleged incidents that occurred in the work place.

Allegations also stretched across Hollywood with some accusers taking aim at celebrities.

Now, the biggest sexual harassment allegation involves Capitol Hill.

Christine Blasey Ford , a California professor, is accusing Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault when the two were in high school.

She is expected to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee about her allegations towards Kavanaugh.

On ABC-7, host Saul Saenz will analyze how the Me Too movement is being perceived here in the Borderland.

Sandra Garcia with the Center Against Sexual and Family Violence, Derick Wyatt, attorney at law, and Claudia Camacho, President of the El Paso Society for Human Resource Management will talk about how the movement is impacting sexual harassment cases.
