Harvey Weinstein is an American film producer and has recently been accused of sexual harassment of at least 30 women. He denies engaging in non-consensual sex and never punished women for rejecting him. He has since been fired by the Weinstein Company, which he co-founded.

Many of his accusers have come out with their stories: some big names include Angelina Jolie, Gwenyth Paltrow, Cara Delevingne, and Kate Beckinsale. All of the stories have a similar trend, with Mr. Weinstein inviting the women up to his hotel room and insisting a massage or just make inappropriate contact. He would insist that it would “help their career,” and if they did not comply with his behavior, they “would not make it big.” He usually targeted females who were in the beginning of their career and who wanted a role in a movie. Weinstein would collaborate with other officials and have the actresses/models condemned from being hired again.
