DENVER -- On Friday, Representative Matt Gray, D-Broomfield, made a stunning confession: He has been wearing a bulletproof vest because he feared the potential backlash against lawmakers like him who supported the effort to kick Lebsock out of office.

State Representative Alec Garnett, D-Denver, also took similar action.

"It takes less bravery to be an ally than it does to come forward yourself as a victim. And that we need to do our part as well," said Gray.         

"Men are the cause of almost all the problems. Not all of them, but almost all of them. And so I don't think men have the option of not being part of the solution," he said.

Winter has praised the many men standing by her side, yet from Wall Street to Silicon Valley to Hollywood, finding an ally can be a struggle.

"The real answer is, it's going to be a lot easier for you to be able to rest at night and to feel like you're doing the right thing by stepping forward and trying to make your workplace better than by looking the other way."
