You can add Meryl Streep, Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham to the long list of public figures unimpressed by Donald Trump’s “locker-room talk” excuse. The three actresses all appear in a new video directed by Liz Garbus called “It’s Not Okay,” which consists mainly of women (some of them teenagers) describing their experiences with rape and sexual assault.
“I think people like Donald Trump will never understand the correlation that women understand between words and actions,” one of them says. “Especially when you’re a man in a position of power and you talk that way publicly and say those things, you are telling everyone that it’s okay to behave that way.” Garbus’ prior work includes the documentaries “What Happened, Miss Simone?” and “Bobby Fischer Against the World.”
Rose McGowan, Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Martha Plimpton and Amber Tamblyn also appear in the three-minute video, which was produced by the independent group Humanity for Hillary.
