Weinstein, a Hollywood Producer, is one of the most powerful men in arts who have been accused of sexual misconducts lately. Other men who have passed through this include Roger Ailes, Fox News chairman and Bill Cosby who is a comedian. This has made them suffer reputation setbacks in their careers.
1. Weinstein’s case was the latest on the headlines having been accused of sexual misconduct by several women. Some of these women include the famous Angelina Jolie and Ashley Judd. This has caused a more impassionate downfall to him.
This scandal was the reason why #MeToo was promoted on Twitter which aimed at airing the grievances of all women who had been sexually harassed in their lifetime. Surprisingly, this went viral as more than half a million women admitted that they had suffered this in their lives.
It caught many peoples’ attention that Lady Gaga, one of the most popular female singers was among these women.
Concern about whether Mr. Weinstein was going to be allowed to get away with that crime as it was the case of many other executives was raised. “This behavior is devastating and pathetic, and the harassed women are therefore going to seek,” one of the victims said.
The grievances have however started bearing fruits as Fatima Graves who is the president of Women’s Law Center nationally addressed the issue recently. She said that more women have continued reporting their harassments and promised to work on that.
There were further positive results seen after Fatima Gross promised to fight for the women’s rights. Mr. Weinstein’s membership was eventually terminated a few weeks ago which served justice to many victims he had harassed. The company said that sexual harassment was highly unacceptable in the company and the community at large.
Hollywood made a wise decision firing this executive. This proved that they were kind and fair to those who had been harassed by their member. Therefore, they gave them what they wanted most: justice.
