100 women accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual abuse.
Today, their voices were heard.

Mia Brett | February 24, 2020 (less than fiddy)

In October of 2017, Alyssa Milano used the #MeToo hashtag, coined by Tarana Burke in 2006,
to respond to sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein.
Two years after the hashtag went viral and 30 years after the first allegation
of sexual assault against him, Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty
of criminal sexual act in the first degree and rape in the third degree.

After 30 years and 100 women coming forward to accuse Weinstein of sexual
assault or harassment, he was found guilty; the voices of 100 women were heard.
And while Weinstein hasn’t been sentenced yet, the verdict comes
with a mandatory jail sentence of 5-25 years.

After decades of accusations without any consequences,
just the fact that Weinstein was on trial was a huge victory.
The work of Tarana Burke and all the women who accused Weinstein
and made the hashtag go viral went a long way towards
getting him indicted and ultimately convicted.
But the uphill climb to get that guilty verdict on just
two counts shows how much work is left to be done.
No matter what happens next, today Harvey Weinstein was
found guilty of rape and a criminal sexual act.
He will have to spend time in jail.
