In the context of the mounting allegations of sexual harassment and assault against Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey in Hollywood, Charlotte was interviewed on Good Morning Britain on 31st October 2017 at 8.10am.  The presenters also spoke to a defence criminal lawyer, who advocated for a 3-year limitation period for sexual offences.  However, Charlotte disagreed and said an abuse claim time limit would discourage women from coming forward and reporting instances of sexual abuse.
