Not at all “just words”: Two women describe Donald Trump assaulting them. Jessica Leeds, now 74, tells the New York Times, “He was like an octopus. His hands were everywhere.”

In December 2005, People writer Natasha Stoynoff went to Donald and Melania Trump’s Florida estate to interview the couple. Trump told her he wanted to show her a particular room in the house. When she walked into the room, he shut the door behind them. Stoynoff writes:

“I turned around, and within seconds he was pushing me against the wall and forcing his tongue down my throat.”

The woman who accused Donald Trump of raping her in 1994, when she was 13-years-old, is taking her case back to court for a third time.

Survivor of sex trafficking, Rebecca Bender, says it’s time to stop glamorizing prostitution.

Exited prostituted women in Australia say they have been harassed and targeted by pro-prostitution groups, labelled “traitors,” since speaking out against the sex trade.
