More than 130 signatories including the writer Gloria Steinem and notable women’s rights organizations have published an open letter in support of the actor Amber Heard, who lost a defamation suit against Johnny Depp, her former husband, in June this year.

In the letter, first shared with NBC News, feminist groups including the National Organization for Women and Women’s March expressed support for Heard and condemned harassment the Aquaman star has faced since the trial. Groups that address sexual assault awareness and domestic violence also signed the letter.
