The Harvey Weinstein effect

The sexual harassment scandal surrounding the Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein (and other men in show business) continues to deepen. News, background and comment on the subject can be found here.

It all began with an article in The New York Times in early October, wherein several women alleged that they had been sexually harassed by movie producer Harvey Weinstein. Since then, a large number of other women have spoken out about the film mogul's sexual abuse — including Hollywood stars like Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie.

Weinstein himself has rejected all the accusations. What is meanwhile being called the "Harvey Weinstein effect" has sparked a global debate about sexual harassment by men, with further cases emerging almost daily.
