'Seeing Allred' Documentary Shows Feminist Lawyer Gloria Allred Even More Fierce Than You Knew Her

Gloria Allred must be the second most-hated woman in America among right-wingers. No, maybe third. First Hillary Clinton, then Nancy Pelosi, then famed feminist attorney Gloria Allred. Indeed the Netflix documentary that premiered at Sundance was a detailed trip into America's second wave of feminism. But directors Roberta Grossman and Sophie Sartain did a first rate job of bringing Allred to life as a living, breathing woman -- although not one very different from the tough cookie we see in press conferences about an accuser of Donald Trump, Roy Moore, Bill Cosby and more.

The film does an excellent job of telling Allred's story as a young Philadelphia mother and teacher. We think of Allred as a prominent feminist but her activists roots sprouted in Watts, when she moved to LA at age 25 with her 5-year-old daughter Lisa Bloom and took a job teaching here.

Gloria Allred Will Present A New Accuser Of Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore Monday At 2:30 PM

The New York Post reports that at 2:30 pm Monday, Gloria Allred has scheduled a news conference at the New York Palace Hotel, where another woman will accuse Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was a minor. 

"The New accuser wishes to state what she alleges Roy Moore did to her without her consent," Allred said in a statement.

The Washington Post broke the heavily detailed story late last week, in which now grown women alleged that Moore pursued them as teenagers when he was in his 30s. The most explosive accusation came from Leigh Corfman, who was 14 years old when she alleges Roy Moore took her to his house in the woods and molested her. 

On a second visit, she says, he took off her shirt and pants and removed his clothes. He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear.
