Of the many horrifying and shocking details in Tuesday's The New Yorker report that movie mogul Harvey Weinstein allegedly raped, sexually assaulted and sexually harassed more than a dozen women, one that sticks out is a quote from French actress Emma de Caunes, who said Weinstein exposed himself to her in a hotel room in 2010.

Coca-Cola Is Doing The Most Amazing Thing For Hurricane Harvey Victims

  Coca-Cola Is Doing The Most Amazing Thing For Hurricane Harvey Victims Harvey relief efforts are ongoing.Bill Zang, who owns Hovercraft Unlimited, drove down to Beaufort, Texas all the way from Illinois this weekend to help with relief efforts. Along the way, he used a hovercraft to rescue a man from a flooded highway.

Three women are alleging that Weinstein sexually assaulted them or forced oral sex , while the other reports range from verbal sexual "Women have been talking about Harvey amongst ourselves for a long time, and it's simply beyond time to have the conversation publicly," Judd told the Times.

Harvey Weinstein arrives at The Weinstein Company and Netflix Golden Globes afterparty in Beverly Hills, on Jan. And it goes well beyond Hollywood In California, some education is already required about " sexual harassment, sexual assault , adolescent relationship abuse , intimate partner violence

“I know that everybody — I mean everybody — in Hollywood knows that it’s happening,” de Caunes said. “He’s not even really hiding. I mean, the way he does it, so many people are involved and see what’s happening. But everyone’s too scared to say anything.”

The magazine's searing investigation into Weinstein's alleged sexual predation comes only five days after The New York Times published a meticulous account that detailed three decades of alleged sexual harassment and abuse. The Times published another report on Tuesday, in which Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie accused Weinstein of harassment. 

It's an indictment of Weinstein, who has since been fired from his own company and denounced by dozens of A-list stars and filmmakers who have worked with him. But it's also an indictment of the Hollywood culture that allowed Weinstein's abuses to continue for nearly 30 years, seemingly unabated. "Even in an industry in which sexual harassment has long persisted, Mr. Weinstein stands out," the Times noted.

  How to Cope If You're Feeling Triggered by the #MeToo Movement <p>Recognizing the widespread problem of sexual assault, and giving voice to the victims, is undoubtedly a good thing. But it can have this unintended consequence.</p>It’s nearly impossible to turn on the TV, read the news, or log onto Facebook right now without reading or hearing about a woman’s experience with sexual assault. What started with celebrity accusations of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has spread to women everywhere—including, probably, many women in your own social media feed.

after being sexually harassed or assaulted while working in Hollywood—proving issues of abusive and predatory behavior go far beyond Harvey Weinstein . This group, she told the audience, would be responsible for "developing new, industry-wide protections against sexual harassment and abuse ."

The issue isn't isolated to Weinstein or the film industry. This happens in every industry, in social circles, in public spaces. Keeping track of just the famous male figures at the center of these allegations is downright exhausting.

Sexual abuse is systemic, not singular. Stopping it requires men to speak up and stand up to other men. It requires acknowledging that there's no such thing as "locker room talk." It requires believing women so that it doesn't take 20 years for them to feel safe enough to share their experiences.  

Much has been said in the past few days of the “whisper networks” by which women communicate to protect themselves, including the one that made at least part of Weinstein's behavior common knowledge. Some have asked why no woman has spoken on the record about Weinstein's behavior before now. That's the wrong question. It's not the whispers we should be focusing on, but the deafening silence of bystanders and enablers. It's the culture — both within and beyond Hollywood — dominated by toxic masculinity that ignored Weinstein's problematic behavior, that let rumor remain rumor, and that endangers women everywhere if it's not curtailed. 

Here's How to Talk to Your Daughters About Sexual Harassment

  Here's How to Talk to Your Daughters About Sexual Harassment According to one study, more than 1 in 10 American girls has experienced catcalls or street harassment by age 11.&nbsp;You’ve probably seen the hashtag in your Twitter feed, read the stories on Facebook, or posted your own heart-wrenching stories about sexual harassment.

Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse allegations. Harvey Weinstein is a former American film producer and executive who achieved international fame as an independent film producer and co-founder of Miramax Films and The Weinstein Company.

The film industry is built on a system of sexism: Women comprised just 7% of the directors of the 250 top-grossing films domestically in 2016, a lack of parity that's being investigated by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. A 2016 study found that women make up only 27% of top film critics on Rotten Tomatoes. Hollywood has long ignored women as creative contributors or potential consumers for the movies it makes. 

Films are often created to titillate male audiences, exploiting women in the process, from lurid shots of the female stars of the Transformers franchise to films such as Jurassic World that reduce female characters to shrill stereotypes to still others like Taken that subject women to violence to motivate the male hero. This male-centric viewpoint filters down to film fans raised on media that depicts or even celebrates misogyny, some of whom gleefully harass women who dare voice opinions on films. 

The list of men in Hollywood who have been accused of sexual misconduct, harassment or assault gets longer all the time. Woody Allen. Bill Cosby. Roman PolanskiCasey Affleck and Louis C.K. have been accused of misconduct. The broader film community also has been rocked by allegations against prominent film bloggers Devin Faraci and Harry Knowles and “Honest Trailers” creator Andy Signore. The Los Angeles art house cinema Cinefamily suspended operations after accusations surfaced.

Man Dies From Flesh-Eating Bacteria After Repairing Hurricane Harvey-Damaged Homes

  Man Dies From Flesh-Eating Bacteria After Repairing Hurricane Harvey-Damaged Homes A Texas man has died after contracting a rare flesh-eating infection while fixing several homes damaged by Hurricane Harvey, health officials said.&nbsp;The 31-year-old Galveston man was hospitalized on Oct. 10 for a “seriously infected” wound on his upper left arm and died six days later, the Galveston County Health District said in a news release Monday. His official cause of death was necrotizing fasciitis, a deadly bacterial skin infection that rapidly eats away at the body’s soft tissue, according to the local health district and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Harvey Weinstein has issued an official statement in reaction to an article published by The New York Times on Thursday in which a handful of former employees and associates accused the media mogul of sexual abuse that spans decades.

A string of high-profile sexual harassment cases -- Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and former Fox News star Bill O'Reilly among them -- may raise hopes that such workplace abuses may eventually become a rarity, although research correlates male-dominated industries with sexual harassment.

We know Harvey Weinstein isn’t the only one, but how many predators are left that we don’t know about? Accusers risk their livelihoods and further harassment by speaking out. Some don't understand what has happened. Others are told to get used to it, to "be cool" or "take a joke." 

The Onion captured the problem best with its headline, ‘How Could Harvey Weinstein Get Away With This?’ Asks Man Currently Ignoring Sexual Misconduct Of 17 Separate Coworkers, Friends, Acquaintances.

It’s not enough to point at Weinstein as a problem. The bigger challenge is changing this climate, calling out everyday harassment and sexism in Hollywood and the culture at large. 

Ignorance is easy. Ignoring gossip, ignoring whispers, ignoring a troll yelling at a woman on Twitter for not liking Blade Runner 2049, that’s simple.

Looking inward is hard. Admitting the problem is bigger than you thought is hard. But if we don’t, we’ll just be in the same place when it's the next man.
