Post-Weinstein: 71 Men, Sexual Violence & Their Fall From Power

Posted by

In early October, Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood producer, was fired from his namesake company after multiple women came forward reporting rape and sexual assault.

In what appears to be a seismic shift in what behavior is tolerated in the workplace, a cascade of high-profile men, many in the entertainment and news media industries, have since been fired or forced to resign after reports of sexual misconduct that ranged from inappropriate comments to rape.
