Published on 16 October, 2018 at 4:44 pm By

It was 2017 when the New York Times and The New Yorker first carried a series of articles describing how Rose Mcgowan had accused  Harvey Weinstein of rape and sexual assault. As more and more women started talking to the press and more articles were published, the tide changed. Harvey Weinstein was soon expelled from the Academy and this gave a strength to other women survivors, to speak against their offenders. In the months that followed, some of the most high profile names including Kevin Spacey, Woody Allen, Roman Polanski, Morgan Freeman were accused. Since then at-least a four hundred powerful men have been accused.
