President's Message

Amy T. Brantly
WLALA President 2017-2018

The holidays are in full swing and our calendars are filling up fast with parties and celebrations. WLALA’s own Holiday Reception, where we celebrate our new Life Members and the new members of the Los Angeles Judiciary, is tonight at the beautiful City Club. And, our Annual Giving campaign, where WLALA Foundation raises money for scholarships, grants and fellowships, among other things, has also commenced. The next month will surely be a time for giving, celebrating and looking forward to a new year and the positive changes that it will bring.

One recent area of positive change that I think deserves special attention is the apparent sexual harassment revolution. Starting with the allegations against Harvey Weinstein in October which detailed decades of allegations of sexual harassment against actresses and others and resulting in several other women coming forward against alleged harassers including Ben Affleck, John Besh, George H.W. Bush, Louis C.K., Kevin Spacey, Roy Moore, Al Franken, John Conyers, Mark Halperin, John Lasseter, Charlie Rose and Matt Lauer. In total, some 35 men from various industries have been accused of misconduct from lewd texts to rape. The allegations against sexual predators also gave birth to the #metoo movement on social media demonstrating how widespread and common sexual harassment is. Twitter alone reported that more than 1.7 million women and men have used the hashtag in 85 countries.
