I, and so many of Harvey Weinstein’s survivors, had given up hope that our rapist would be held accountable by law. Twenty years ago, I swore that I would right this wrong. Today we are one step closer to justice. We were young women who were assaulted by Weinstein and later terrorized by his vast network of complicity. I stand with my fellow survivors. May his arrest give hope to all victims and survivors everywhere that are telling their truths.
The american journalist Lauren Sivan, who had been told that the magnate of the movie was masturbated in front of her at the beginning of his career, has expressed his “joy” on Twitter. “The road has been long, but today with other victims and myself we look forward. We pray that more people do not under-estimate the power of women who stand together and shout the truth.”
The actress Asia Argento, who had taken the floor to tell a rape suffered in 1997 in Antibes, france, for his part, expressed his satisfaction in four letters.
