High Profile Assaulters
Assault, abuse, and rape also is found with high-profile attackers. A recent example of this comes from the conviction of Harvey Weinstein. On February 24, 2020, a jury convicted Harvey Weinstein of two counts of criminal sexual assault in the first degree and one count of rape in the third degree, drawing a satisfying conclusion to one of the sparks that ignited the #MeToo movement. Dozens of women came forward with stories of sexual assault. And in doing so, they faced intense public scrutiny
Survivors of sexual assault, sexual abuse, and rape involving a high-profile attacker face additional pressures to stay silent and additional red tape in getting their complaints filed and heard. In each of these cases, survivors face heightened public scrutiny because the accused assaulters hold so much public favor simply by virtue of their attacker’s social status.
But they don’t have to bear it alone.
