Meg worked on getting this interview for MONTHS. She emailed no less than four times, and in the internet world, that’s a lot of unanswered emails. Finally, a response came through: “Please check with me closer to the date.” We both just about died. Gloria Allred is one of our heroes. When we arrived at her offices in Los Angeles, Meg thanked her for taking the time to talk to us and Gloria said “I have to reward a woman with persistence.”
Gloria Allred is the famed and extremely successful attorney most known for women’s rights cases, including the recent sexual harassment allegations leveled against President Trump, Bill Cosby, and Harvey Weinstein. Her work towards equal rights for women and minorities has changed laws, and lives. We invite you to watch the fantastic Netflix documentary about her, Seeing Allred.
