On October 5, the New York Times published an exposé alleging that Harvey Weinstein, one of Hollywood’s most revered moguls and influential kingpins, has been sexually harassing and abusing women for nearly 30 years. On October 10, the New Yorker followed with another extensive report, including several graphic, on-the-record accounts from more of Weinstein’s alleged victims. Just a couple of hours later, the Times followed up its own report with yet more public accounts, including from industry stalwarts Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie.
Together, the allegations indicate that Weinstein may have abused his power on a variety of fronts over decades, and identify a pattern of behavior in which Weinstein often invited women to hotels for “business meetings,” only to make sexual advances against their will. Most of the women Weinstein allegedly targeted were young and had little institutional power, and they say they were afraid to speak out afterward for fear that he would ruin their careers.
Comprising both specific incidents of assault and ongoing harassment and suggestive behavior, the list of women accusing Weinstein is long — and as more women speak up, it’s likely to get longer. Here are all the women who have so far gone on record alleging that Weinstein sexually harassed and abused them, presented alphabetically. Please be advised that the details below include explicit and disturbing accounts of sexual assault.
This list will be updated as necessary.
