In bombshell investigations by the New York Times and the New Yorker, numerous women have come forward with accounts of being sexually harassed and, in some cases, assaulted by Hollywood mega-producer Harvey Weinstein. The stories reveal a repeated pattern of Weinstein allegedly luring and isolating women—often in their early twenties—into a private room and asking them for massages. According to the women, if they didn’t respond favorably to his advances, he would continue to press further, insisting others had done the same or even boasting of his sexual relationships with famous actresses and models. The allegations go back nearly three decades across his time heading Miramax and later The Weinstein Company.

Weinstein’s spokeswoman, Sallie Hofmeister, said in a statement on Tuesday that Mr. Weinstein “unequivocally denied” any allegations of non-consensual sex. “Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances,” Hofmeister said. “Mr. Weinstein obviously can’t speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual.” 

Both the Times and the New Yorker allege that Weinstein used his power to threaten women into submission or enforce silence, with the Times reporting that Weinstein paid multiple settlements between $80,000 to $150,000. His targets were actresses, models, employees, and others in the film and entertainment business. Women feared that speaking up would damage their careers. When Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, a Filipina-Italian model, tried to press charges against Weinstein, for instance, incriminating stories about her past began appearing in newspapers. Gutierrez later signed a nondisclosure agreement and told the New Yorker she was unable to talk about the incident.
