young people being put into situations dealing with people who have huge amounts of power, little evidence of what has happened, breaking into an industry that turns a blind eye and no-one wants to know, getting called a liar and a slut, being told you probably just mis-read the situation, being called weak because you didnt report it…

on Harvey Weinstein…
It is disheartening to see so many comments already blaming women for not "speaking up." Please count yourself lucky that you've never had your career on the line based on whether or not you sleep with your boss. It has nothing to do with fame and riches; this happens to women making minimum wage in retail as well as women who fought through it to become CEOs.

The psychology behind this kind of thing is not that complex, so please spare a moment to consider: Not only are these women made to feel humiliated and embarrassed, but in some cases if they had come forward, they not only would never work again, they also would be seen as whiners and "too sensitive." Both Jolie and Paltrow fended him off. Imagine if they made a big stink about it. They would have been ripped apart in the media! "Oh for goodness' sake, a dirty old man came on to you. You rejected him and moved on, why the fuss?"

But, of course, now we insist on blaming them for "perpetuating" Weinstein's behavior. Please. The amount of cognitive dissonance it must take to blame women for their own persecution is astounding. Note that the comments have not centered around Brad Pitt's not saying anything, though he knew about it with not one but two romantic partners.

It is not the women's job to monitor men's behavior. Women are doing the best they can with what they have to survive in a world that depends on their subjugation.

Good on women for wanting equal rights in the real world but any that work in Hollywood or for the BBC can get arse raped a million times over.

You mock the bible, but I don't think it's a thing to mess with especially if you're in the Aksum area.

I think you have to question the apparent flood of "victims" suddenly feeling it necessary to pipe up.
Take Emma Thompson for example - she knew about him, had done for years - as did all of the other strong female leads in the business.
Yes he was Uber powerful but you Cant tell me the number of alleged victims were all so in fear for their career/lives/reputation that they all kept pretty much schtum.
She compared it to Saville on NN last night (in such a condescending matter). sick bairns that didn't have a chance compared to fully grown functioning adults!?! He wasn't a Gulag Commandant!
Myleene Class admitting to a sex contract years ago with him - All a bit of a laugh!??
I think people have a duty to shop the bastards First time. All seems very self indulgent/selfish. Wonder how many people took up Harvey's offer of "benefits" ?

I'm not mocking religion, just the hypocrisy of Mr X.
