LOS ANGELES, California — Hundreds of people marched to the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Highland Ave. on Sunday in the “#MeToo Survivors’ March,” a protest against sexual harassment in Hollywood and beyond.
The gathering was held on the Walk of Fame, as crowds of tourists shuffled past. Homemade signs read: “Consent is sexy”; “Don’t Be a Dick: Support Survivors”; and “Actors Against Rape Culture.”
There were almost customary fulminations against “the patriarchy,” and denunciations of President Donald Trump as the “Predator-in-Chief.” Socialist groups distributed literature at the fringes of the crowd, and Code Pink stickers were widespread.
One speaker demanded the dismantling of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

But others were there simply to take a stand.
Ashley Woods, an actor from Long Beach, told Breitbart News that she had come to the rally “because I want to support anyone that’s experienced sexual assault, violence, and harassment.
She said that she was new to Hollywood, and was disappointed that there was so much abuse within the entertainment industry.
