The Massachusetts chapter of the abortion-rights group NARAL appears to be the first interest group to request disclosures of sexual harassment, reports the Boston Globe's Stephanie Ebbert.

Why it matters: "The questionnaire shows how much the political discourse has changed since the 2016 presidential election, and how much further women’s rights groups hope to push it in the #MeToo era."

The question: “Have you ever been formally accused of sexual harassment? If so, please explain.”

“I think our biggest hope is to help elevate the conversation about sexual harassment and make clear that one of the values of reproductive freedom is being free from harassment in the workplace... As uncomfortable as it can be to have these conversations, I think they’re really critical to advancing women’s role in society and also in politics.”
— Rebecca Hart Holder, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts, to the Boston Globe
