Variety: Rosanna Arquette, Rose McGowan on Harvey Weinstein Rape Trial: ‘Time’s Up on Sexual Harassment’

Silencebreakers, Weinstein


“Time’s up on sexual harassment in all work places,” said Arquette. “Time’s up on empty apologies without consequences. And time’s up on the pervasive culture of silence that has enabled abusers like Weinstein. These abusers that make it unsafe for women to go to work every morning, to take a business meeting, or even to report a crime without retaliation. We are here to ensure that the focus of this criminal case is on the perpetrator — the perpetrator’s actions and not his victims. And that justice is served. The truth will prevail. And whether it is this trial or in the future, Harvey will be held accountable for his actions.”
