Christine Pelosi was one of 300 women in California politics who signed a letter last month alleging sexual misconduct at the state capitol. The women said they had "endured, or witnessed, or worked with women who have experienced some form of dehumanizing behavior by men with power in our workplaces." 

Since that letter was first published, numerous lawmakers at both the state and federal level have been accused of sexual misconduct, including California Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra (who has since resigned) and U.S. Senator Al Franken -- both Democrats.

Now, leaders of the California Democratic Party have come up with a list of demands for how to respond to sexual misconduct allegations. Christine Pelosi chairs the California Democratic Party's Women's Caucus, and she joined Take Two to speak with A Martinez.
