Harvey Weinstein is certainly not the first powerful man publicly and credibly accused of sexually harassing or abusing women in recent years.

But the outcry accompanying Weinstein’s downfall seems louder and more impassioned.

A WATERSHED MOMENT

That became clear on Sunday, when Facebook, Instagram and Twitter were flooded with messages from women who used the hashtag #MeToo to acknowledge that they had dealt with sexual harassment or assault.

Twitter promoted the #MeToo campaign on Moments, its platform of highlighted stories, and the hashtag went on to be used more than 500,000 times in its first 24 hours by people from all lines of work. 

Those taking part included the singer Lady Gaga; the actresses Rosario Dawson, Anna Paquin and Evan Rachel Wood; and the poet Najwa Zebian.

COMING SOON: THE WEINSTEIN FALL

“Do not let me be fired,” Mr. Weinstein wrote in an email sent Sunday to Hollywood agents and studio executives.

Announcing the next painting of my Preserved Present philosophy, this artwork about sexual harassment at the high levels of Hollywood will be completed in the coming months.

More information will be released as I get closer to the completion of this original painting.

However, as a brief teaser read bellow to discover some of the subjects that I'ld be exploring as I start to construct my composition.

  • Actress Alyssa Milano started the #MeToo Movement by urging people to acknowledge on social media if they had experienced sexual harassment or assault..
  • High profile accusers of Mr. Weinstein includes Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Patrow and Ashley Judd.
  • A viral clip from 2005 shows Courtney Love accusing Creative Artists Agency for punishing her after she raised questions about Mr. Weinstein’s behaviour.
  • James Corden appeared shocked by global anger over his jokes about his friend “Harvey”, at an award ceremony this weekend. 
  • Rose McGowan's public voice was suspended by Twitter after a series of posts about Harvey Weinstein’s misconduct. 
  • Mayim Bialik had to clarify her comments after an opinion piece she wrote drew accusations of victim blaming.

If you are interested in how this painting will progress you might want to add your first name and best email address bellow. I'll keep you in the loop about when we plan to launch.

(People on this list will get the chance to buy The Weinstein Fall Original Painting before anyone else.)
