When Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor pressed publish on their explosive expose into sexual harassment and assault allegations levelled at Harvey Weinstein, they pulled on a thread that unravelled Hollywood’s most tightly bound secret.
Sexual misconduct was – and still is – rife in the entertainment industry, we now know. Young women are preyed upon by older men, who gleefully use their power and connections to assert dominance.
The growing list of men accused of sexual misconduct is horrifyingly long. The depths of the problem is glaring.
These are the names of the men who have been accused – so far, the deafening accusations are all we have – of sexual misconduct since the Weinstein scandal broke on October 5.
Five weeks. 32 men.
Beside their names, we have put the women – and men – who claim they sexually demeaned them.
