Stand with @AshleyJudd or give your legs to someone else. What she and others have just done is painful and difficult and triumphant.

Yesterday the New York Times published a story about the decades long pattern of sexual harassment exhibited by Weinstein.

Today it was announced that Weinstein had been forced to take a leave of absence from the company he founded, the Weinstein Company, while they investigate the allegations.

This abuse of power must be called out, however powerful the abuser, and we must publicly stand with those brave enough to come forward. https://t.co/9jAAZtfjJe

The woman who chose to speak about their experience of harassment by Harvey Weinstein deserve our awe. It's not fun or easy. It's brave.
