“I saw a member yesterday with her cleavage so deep it was down to the floor,” Kaptur said, according to the sources present. “And what I’ve seen … it’s really an invitation.” The comments left many others in the room stunned, the sources said. From Politico.
Kaptur said women on Capitol Hill should have to abide by a stricter dress code, like those adopted by the military or corporations.
“Maybe I’ll get booed for saying this, but many companies and the military [have] a dress code,” she said. “I have been appalled at some of the dress of … members and staff. Men have to wear ties and suits.”
Aptos Psychologist: More decorum coming soon? Not likely. Women students wear P.J.s to night law classes. In Aptos, women wear bathing suits with minor cover up to get groceries. The image you present does affect how people interact with you.

Hollywood, California-based non-profit organization called Women in Film (WIF) announced this week that it is launching a “sexual harassment help line” on December 1.
The group, which “advocates for and advances the careers of women working in the screen industries – to achieve parity and transform culture,” says the helpline will help by providing legal aid, counseling, and advice to men, women, and youth who have experienced or are experiencing sexual harassment.
The William Morris/Endeavor (WME) talent agency provided seed funding for the sexual harassment help line. However, WIF says it still needs to raise $25,000 to help launch the helpline.
“Since early October, the world’s attention has been focused on the unfolding story of countless allegations of sexual harassment against many powerful men in the entertainment industry,” a statement from WIF read. “In response, Women In Film is launching a Sexual Harassment Help Line — an integrated program to refer victims of harassment to designated mental health counselors, law enforcement professionals, and civil and criminal lawyers and litigators.”
Southern California Public Radio reported that WIF stated: “Anyone, regardless of gender, can access the Sexual Harassment Help Line at 323.545.0333. The Help Line will go live beginning FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1 at 10 am PST. It will be open M-F from 10am-5pm.”
The helpline is being launched in response to a multitude of sexual harassment allegations and revelations against mostly men in the film, news, and entertainment industries. In addition to that, years of sexual misconduct have started to surface against politicians, both in Washington and in various state capitals.
Comment: Who is paying for this? How is privacy protected? Is there followup to see how callers like the service? There are plenty of mental health professionals that might be interested in helping out. written by licensed CA psychologist Cameron Jackson, Ph.D. PSY14762
Late-night TV blackout — about Harvey Weinstein, Hollywood producer & Democrat Party mega-donor.
The parade of liberal late-night TV hosts — including Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, and James Corden — flat-out ignored Thursday the blistering New York Times report alleging that Hollywood super-producer and Democratic Party mega-donor Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed multiple women over a period of decades.
In public, Mr. Weinstein presents himself as a liberal lion, a champion of women and a winner of not just artistic but humanitarian awards.
In 2015, the year Ms. O’Connor wrote her memo, his company distributed “The Hunting Ground,” a documentary about campus sexual assault.
A longtime Democratic donor, Mr. Weinstein hosted a fund-raiser for Hillary Clinton in his Manhattan home last year. He employed Malia Obama, the oldest daughter of former President Barack Obama, as an intern this year, and recently helped endow a faculty chair at Rutgers University in Gloria Steinem’s name. During the Sundance Film Festival in January, when Park City, Utah, held its version of nationwide women’s marches, Mr. Weinstein joined the parade.
Weinstein’s most current attorney, a woman, just resigned.
