Big fat placmark.

Worriedrose Tue 17-Oct-17 21:43:42

I'm glad we are keeping this going. If 100% of women have experienced sexual harassment. (Someone correct me, if they know a woman that has never experienced it) what the fuck does that say about our society

molly ringwald just did an article in the NYorker. A married director put his tongue in her mouth when she was 14.

RapunzelsSplitEnds Tue 17-Oct-17 21:47:27

Why has he not been arrested?

place marking (sorry)

Datun Tue 17-Oct-17 22:13:06

Place marking, too.

InigoTaran Tue 17-Oct-17 22:27:29

Thanks for new thread. I think this has in a very short space of time, unleashed an absolute tsunami of accounts of sexual abuse, rape and harassment. The floodgates have been opened and, sorry to mix metaphors, but Pandora’s box has been opened and I don’t think there’s any going back from this now.

Women are angry and we won’t be silenced any more...

I'm glad more are speaking out too. Reese Witherspoon's speech on this was heartbreaking & powerful too. I hope there is a huge seismic shift from all this, I really do.

derxa Tue 17-Oct-17 22:41:14

I hope there is a huge seismic shift from all this, I really do. I do as well but I'm old and very cynical.

GorgeousLadyOfWrangling Tue 17-Oct-17 23:23:58

Thanks for the new thread cave
I began collating when I kept hearing of 'dozens' of complainants but only saw the bigger names repeated. The journalist Lisa Ryan at The Cut/Vulture is continuing to update an exhaustive list as is now the Guardian. Whether all this information will lead to an arrest remains to be seen. In the UK Lysette Anthony reported him to the police recently as did four other women anonymously. He is also under investigation in the States.

Datun Tue 17-Oct-17 23:28:43

Telling a woman you won’t give her a part in a film if she doesn’t give you a blow job is not a crime, as far as I know. It remains to be seen whether or not the rape accusations are investigated properly.

But surely he can be got on indecent exposure? At least 55 times?

GorgeousLadyOfWrangling Tue 17-Oct-17 23:28:58

Sorry, Natalie Mendoza is 38 so 54 allegations (59)

Despicable scum.

Datun Wed 18-Oct-17 00:48:10

Oh good lord. Bob was the one who shopped Harvey in the first place. Surely he would have to have made sure he was absolutely squeaky clean!

They’re saying it’s not true, and even if it is he didn’t actually touch her.

Ugh.

GorgeousLadyOfWrangling Wed 18-Oct-17 02:23:36

Alexi Melvin tweeted that BW once tried to lure her to one of Wankstain's meetings. Amazed that a #whataboutBob hasn't done the rounds yet. He can feign ignorance but enabling is part of the problem and Wankstain's contract would infer the company knew.

MeRichard Wed 18-Oct-17 06:08:34

As these are all famous names (I think - I know nothing about celebrity) and because we know that he also at least molested women who were not famous then the list must be longer.

While he has been a disgusting sexual predator by these accounts, much, maybe all, of what is reported is illegal. The law is there but not working. The sexual side takes all our attention for obvious reasons but the solution is in preventing anyone being able to exercise unrestrained power.

I'm not suggesting that all men, or women for that matter, abuse unchecked power but that if it is available then some will. Why does a producer ever need to meet with an actor or actress alone? Why would they ever need to conduct business in a hotel room or suite when a lobby or conference room could be used?

I have no doubt that Mr Weinstein is a powerful person who can make magic happen in business. Why pretend otherwise? The few producers I have met are like that. You can't expect the companies to police the restraint required as they are owned or run by people like him. It has to be the industry as a whole that says these are the rules. I would look to the guilds, the unions and the other professional bodies to take the lead on practices. To say, for example, how meetings should take place and how they should not. You will not stop it but you can at least stop it being seen as normal and at that point it gets just a little bit easier for victims to call it out when it does happen.

Alittlepotofrosie Wed 18-Oct-17 07:27:41

Interesting that bob is now being accused too.

Telling a woman you won't give her a part unless she gives you a blow job is sexual harassment.

Datun Wed 18-Oct-17 08:28:59

Yes, of course it is. I was getting swayed by his constant refrain of it being consensual.

Am I right in that it comes under sex discrimination? It seems such a paltry response.

BulletFox Wed 18-Oct-17 09:27:16

Actually I was wondering what would happen now? I don't think I've read anything suggesting there might be a case. I was a bit confused about some signing a non-disclosure form for a payment as well

InigoTaran Wed 18-Oct-17 09:51:04

Police in the UK and the US are currently investigating so he may end up getting prosecuted?
