This weekend, women across the country marched. In separate locations, but with one goal in mind – registering one million voters this year. The marches marked the anniversaries of last year’s Women’s March in Washington and President Trump’s inauguration, and an infusion of energy since the first events courtesy of the #MeToo movement. Women like Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Viola Davis, shared their stories – including those of sexual harassment.

Davis spoke out Saturday in Los Angeles, calling out names of black women that have been victims of sexual assault – Fannie Lou Hamer, Recy Taylor and Tarana Burkes – applauding them as among women to speak out.   “Nothing and no one can be great without a cost. I am always introduced as an award-winning actor, but my testimony is one of poverty, of one being assaulted, seeing a childhood that was robbed from me. I know that every single day when I think of that, I know the trauma of those events are still with me today,” said Davis.
