This video released today from the social media campaign “Humanity for Hilary” features Meryl Streep, Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Whoopi Goldberg, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and other women who share their own experience of surviving sexual assault. It's a powerful response to recent events surrounding the Republican nominee for president, Donald Trump.
Sexual assault is “not okay,” the women say.
From The Hill:
“We’re not going to take it anymore,” says Tamblyn. The “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” star recently revealed on Instagram her own experience with sexual abuse at the hands of an ex-boyfriend.
“What are we supposed to do, you know? You’re talking about harassing us, like that’s okay,” one of the women in the video, directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Liz Garbus, says to the camera.
“Not okay,” then says Streep, shaking her head. The Oscar winner is a prominent supporter of Democratic White House hopeful Clinton, and appeared onstage at the Democratic National Convention in July.
Other stars, including Dunham, Rose McGowan, Schumer, Gyllenhaal, and Rosie Perez all repeat the “It’s not okay,” line in rapid succession.
“It’s not okay,” says “The View” co-host Goldberg, “seriously.”
