MANILA, Philippines – It is the 21st century, and women have come far. From the days when they were forced to keep silent and stay in the kitchen, women can now wear trousers, hold public office, excercise the right to suffrage, and enter the military.
But have they come far enough?
The White House releases a minute-long video, with seven of the most powerful men in Washington D.C. and Hollywood condemning the gruesome fact that women continue to deal with: sexual assault.
Called the 1 is 2 Many campaign, US President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, along with actors Benicio del Toro, Daniel Craig, Steve Carell, Dulé Hill, and Seth Meyers speak up against sexual assault and encourage other men to do the same.
