On Oct. 17, 2017, on the heels of the national #MeToo movement, more than 140 women working in California politics signed onto a letter published in the Los Angeles Times describing a “pervasive” culture of harassment and belittlement by men in power at the state Capitol.

In the days and months following its publication, stories of harassment and abuse emerged, resulting in investigations, resignations and changes to how the Legislature handles sexual harassment claims.

As the effects of the “We Said Enough” letter continue to reverberate in Sacramento and beyond, you can check back here for the latest developments.
