Women are clapping back against people who continue to question why they keep silent in the face of sexual harassment.
It comes in the wake of numerous allegations against Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein.
A growing list of women – mostly actors – have accused Weinstein of pestering them for sexual favours in exchange for career support, as first reported by the New York Times. Three women have also accused him of rape, according to an extensive investigation by the New Yorker. Weinstein denies all the allegations.
Police in London and New York have both confirmed to BuzzFeed News that units are investigating sexual assault complaints against Weinstein.
The Academy Awards will consider "any actions warranted" against Weinstein following the accusations. He has also been suspended by BAFTA, the British Academy of Film. Finally, The Weinstein Company (which he cofounded with his brother) has fired him, the board announced Sunday.
