The #MeToo movement has provided a space for women from all walks of life to talk about harassment and abuse — and now that extends to Catholic nuns.

For years, it’s been public knowledge that priests in the Catholic Church have sexually abused children, and now the Associated Press has published an investigation in which they spoke with a number of nuns who have also been abused, many of whom have been silent for decades.

One of the authors of the investigation, Nicole Winfield, joined The Show to talk about it.
