There was a new landscape for survivors of sexual assault in the United States. It was a new day because Harvey Weinstein had finally been held responsible for the crimes he had committed. Weinstein was a vicious sexual predator, and in series he had used his power to threaten, assault, rape, cheat, humiliate and silence their victims.
