LOS ANGELES (AP) - As thousands of girls gather to learn about leadership from Hillary Clinton, California Sen. Kamala Harris and female CEOs, many are thinking about how the recent wave of sexual misconduct allegations against powerful men will impact their own lives and ambitions.

About 10,000 middle and high school girls flooded the Los Angeles Convention Center on Friday for the Girls Build Leadership Summit, described by organizers as the largest event of its kind in the nation.

The gathering comes as sexual misconduct allegations continue to rock Hollywood, politics and beyond. Although the event was billed as focusing on activism and leadership, harassment and assault against women in the workplace loomed large.

Clinton told the girls her ideas have been brushed aside and she's been denied opportunities because of her gender.
