Women across the country are coming forward and standing up to sexual harassment. The accusations have also hit the Illinois capital as well, with 8th District State Senator Ira Silverstein being accused of harassment by a legislative activist.
95th District State Representative Avery Bourne is one of the youngest women to represent the people of Illinois in Springfield. She says the position that would investigate harassment and other claims has been vacant for three years.
Bourne says she has heard many stories from other she works with, and she wants to make working in Springfield the best it can be for the next generation.
Bourne appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
