Women form support group as survivors of perverted dimocrats

Halperin, Rose accusers form group to fight harassment in the media

A group of women who have accused prominent media figures of sexual harassment have formed a support group focused on “changing the culture in newsrooms.”

Fifteen current and former journalists announced Wednesday that they are forming “Press Forward,” a new coalition and support group for accusers dedicated to creating “equitable and effective news environments.”

The effort is being spearheaded by a group of former ABC employees who accused former NBC political analyst Mark Halperin of sexual harassment. According to CNN, the accusers created a Facebook group and held meetings to discuss how to use their experiences to combat harassment in the industry.

The group has also reportedly reached out to some of the women who accused anchor Charlie Rose of sexual harassment. Halperin’s NBC contract was terminated on Oct. 30, while Rose was fired by CBS and PBS on Nov. 21.
