Women's Working Group Invites Sex Assault Victims to State of Union

During last week's Globes, celebrities donned black as a form of protest to show solidarity with both the #MeToo movement and the #TimesUp movement.

Last year Speier acknowledged that she was a victim of sexual assault on Capitol Hill when she was a young congressional aide.

The move, started by Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier and other members of the Democratic Women's Working Caucus, is meant to show solidarity with various movements trying to fight the sexual harassment women face, reports CNN.

"This is a culture change that is sweeping the country, and Congress is embracing it", she said.

Trump has faced numerous accusations of sexual misconduct since before taking office, with at least 17 women accusing him of sexual assault and harassment.

Former Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., announced days before Franken that he would be retiring after facing allegations as well.
