1. I don’t know who needs to hear this, but many of the women who were harassed, assaulted, & raped by Harvey Weinstein still can’t find consistent work. One of the main reasons women don’t report is that they don’t want to be driven out of a biz they’ve worked hard to get into
2. Despite what men accused of sexual misconduct (and their lawyers/pr people) may tell you, women don’t want attention for surviving sexual violence. They don’t want to be on mag covers or sit down with news anchors to retell a traumatizing, humiliating encounter(s) they had
3. As my pal @tamaraholder says all the time, “we just want to work.” Yet two years after the survivors of Harvey Weinstein’s predation bravely stepped forward to share their stories, many of them find themselves shut out of a business that claims that “Times Up.”
4. The question is, can you say that a problem has been solved or is being solved if the people that were victims of that problem are still being treated as outcasts? These women were used to ignite an important movement but they’ve been left behind.
