Alaina Hampton

Age: 30

Occupation: Political consultant

When Hampton told leaders of the state’s Democratic Party in 2017 that Michael Madigan aide Kevin Quinn had sexually harassed her, they ignored and then shunned her. She sued on the grounds of workplace retaliation, teamed up with the crisis-management strategist and #MeToo champion Joanna Klonsky, and won a $275,000 settlement. Her case inspired two pieces of antiharassment legislation — and spurred others to speak out, too.
