Harvey Weinstein was 'furious' after I rejected his advances — Lena Headey

Harvey Weinstein was 'furious' after I rejected his advances — Lena Headey

It made me feel ashamed and dirty.

Through his spokeswoman, Weinstein has "unequivocally denied" any allegations of non-consensual sex after three actresses said he had raped them in an article in The New Yorker. It shouldn't. They were and are enablers. We urge you to be strong, we want you to be very, very angry about the leering, jeering, threats, verbal and physical abuses, we are asking you to be not afraid and to report to the police every time. What began online spilled on to the streets - and how!

Maybe it's time that Hollywood caught up to the rest of the country.

Remember the schoolyard chant, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me?" And I saw you. Apparently not. Some got financial settlements, but others who stood up saw their complaints swept away. "It's so beautiful, Harvey Weinstein has already asked tonight up to his hotel to give him a massage", Corden quipped.

If we can't joke about Weinstein now, then when can we? Years ago, when I started working in a man's world, it happened and it's happened since.

For me, it has been extremely disturbing, alarming and shocking to see many people I know sharing their stories at #MeToo. It is likely that you are not their first victim, and you likely won't be their last, either.

Weinstein deserves to be shamed, mocked, and ridiculed. A veteran assistant is counseling newcomers on how to handle sexual harassment.

Barry Crimmins, a comedian and political satirist, added: "As a male childhood rape survivor who has gone public and had so many disclose to me, I promise: any rape stat you see is low". "My hope is that 'no' is enough from now on". "And do you know I am sure this is true?"

But I was a victim of repeated sexual assault as a 4-year-old. How on earth can he not be mentioned?

Stirred by the status, men too haven't been far behind in expressing solidarity.

Conflating harassment and assault insults those who have actually been sexually assaulted.

"I think a lot of us are finding that the strength in numbers feels positive", she said.

After the advent of technology in our everyday personal and work lives, parents have tried to embrace the brand-new ways to work and communicate with a bit of help from us, the digital natives.

A number of Weinstein's accusers have raised uncomfortable questions about the role played by his assistants. The hashtag was tweeted nearly a million times in just 48 hours. So, they were reluctant to report him to law enforcement.

Lena Headey is the latest actress to come forward accusing producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment. Let's teach our sons to value, respect, honour and cherish women. "Remind each other, and stop abusing".

The New Yorker's exposé on Weinstein came just days later and the accusations were even more damning. He also pointed out that people in India are clueless about the where flirting ends and harassment begins. They groom you with compliments and a false sense of friendship, and then they take advantage. Catcalls and lewd language directed at women are the simplest forms of harassment. That sort of morality boggles the brain with its mal-intent.
