Another 3 women came forward to say they had uncomfortable encounters with former Vice President Biden, The Washington Post first reported Wednesday night, bringing the total number of accusers to 7.

Details: Vail Kohnert-Yount, Sofie Karasek and Ally Coll told WashPost Biden had touched them in ways that made them feel uncomfortable. Four other women have made similar allegations against him. Biden said in a video post on Twitter post earlier Wednesday he understands "social norms are changing." "The boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset," he said.

The latest: Kohnert-Yount said Biden pressed his forehead to hers while introducing himself to her when she was a White House intern in 2013. "I was so shocked that it was hard to focus on what he was saying," she told Wash Post I remember he told me I was a 'pretty girl.'" She didn't believe Biden was harassing her but "it was the kind of inappropriate behavior that makes many women feel uncomfortable and unequal in the workplace."

  • Karasek told WashPost she met Biden after appearing on stage with Lady Gaga and a group of sexual assault survivors at the 2016 Oscars. She told him a friend had died by suicide and he pressed his forehead to hers.
  • Former Democratic aide Coll told WashPost Biden leaned in, squeezed her shoulders, held her "for a beat too long" and complimented her smile when she met him in 2008.
  • Writer DJ Hill, who had earlier alleged Biden slid his hand down her shoulder at a 2012 fundraiser, told "Fox News @ Night" Wednesday night his behavior made her feel "very uncomfortable."
