Women tell Trump that his comments were 'Not OK'

That's because it touched on an issue that nearly all women (unfortunately) are close to, and brushed away the problem of sexual assault in an extremely risky way. Among those backing the effort are the groups Humanity for Progress - led by English and tech entrepreneur Chuck Parrish - and Creatives for Humanity, which includes Geraldine Laybourne, the Nickelodeon creator and former Oxygen CEO; producer and journalist Adaora Udoji; and TED executive Juliet Blake.

Oscar nominated director Liz Garbus created a politically charged PSA video featuring stars like Meryl Streep, Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Whoopi Goldberg, and Maggie Gyllenhaal as well as survivors of sexual assault. "I think people like Donald Trump will never understand the correlation that women understand between words and actions", says actress Amber Tamblyn.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is still navigating the anger prompted by his leaked hot mic comments made in 2005 in a conversation with then-"Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush. "After the release of the Trump Access Hollywood tapes, I felt it was important to share the other side of the story - stories of women being objectified, kissed, groped, and humiliated by the words and actions of others". The women go on to explain the moments of sexual harassment and assault that have stuck with them, and reject the notion that there's such a thing as "locker room talk", which was Donald Trump's defense for his statements.

"These claims are all fabricated", Trump can be heard saying.
