Tracee Ellis Ross filled in for Jimmy Kimmel on his ABC late night show Tuesday night, as Kimmel stayed home with his infant son after his latest heart surgery.

As a woman who has been given a big platform like this show “there is something I want to talk about tonight and that is the Hollywood harassment scandal,” she said.

“Let’s start with the fact it isn’t a sex scandal. It isn’t a Hollywood scandal. It isn’t even a scandal. It is a systemic problem about the abuse of power that takes place across all industries, and had enabled a culture of inequity to persist for far too long,” Ross said.

Tracee shows that she is not surprised by the stories numerous brave women have been coming forward and telling, because in the midst of it all, it seems like quite a few men are starting to come forth also.

For them, she has written a book: “The Handsy Man.” She shared it with viewers.
