Uber is facing a class-action lawsuit over sexual assaults by drivers.

The lawsuit, filed in the Northern District of California on Tuesday, is on behalf of women passengers who experienced "rape, sexual assault, or gender-motivated harassment" by Uber drivers. 

Two anonymous plaintiffs who were assaulted by Uber drivers filed the lawsuit. 

The lawsuit hits Uber months after the company faced a reckoning over the treatment of women in its corporate offices. One executive who was ousted was found to have stolen medical records about a woman who was raped during an Uber ride in India.
