From Aggressive Overtures to Sexual Assault: Harvey Weinstein’s Accusers Tell Their Stories. ⇒

   10 October 2017, early morning

A follow-up (or sorts) to the NYT article that broke the story of Weinstein’s decades of sexually harassing women who worked for him or in the entertainment industry. This article was apparently 10 months in the works.

The story, however, is more complex, and there is more to know and to understand. In the course of a ten-month investigation, I was told by thirteen women that, between the nineteen-nineties and 2015, Weinstein sexually harassed or assaulted them, allegations that corroborate and overlap with the Times’s revelations, and also include far more serious claims.

I wonder if the NYT article was the push for them to publish things. This New Yorker article is far more serious. They spoke with women who accuse Weinstein of raping them.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
