Women across the country from Hollywood to Capitol Hill have come forward in recent weeks to accuse prominent men of sexual misconduct.

Dingell's latest comments come after she shared her "Me Too" story on Friday, revealing that a "prominent" historical figure tried to put his hand up her skirt decades ago.

Comstock, Dingell, and various other members of Congress have since moved to take action against sexual assault.

"And we're going to get mandatory training, universal, uniform anti-harassment, zero-tolerance policies in place."
