Right To Be’s (formerly Hollaback!) Statement on Harvey Weinstein Conviction

At Right To Be (formerly Hollaback!), we stand with everyone who has ever faced harassment or assault. We are grateful to the many silence breakers who have come forward and so boldly shared their stories so that others can be safer, and less alone.

 

Today, a jury convicted Mr. Weinstein of felony sex crime and rape, but acquitted him of the most serious charges against him, predatory sexual assault.

 

This verdict reminds us of what we already know: Weinstein is only one man, and we won’t end sexual violence and harassment playing whack-a-mole with the criminal justice system. But this verdict echoes the strong message that many people, especially women, have been demanding for decades: WE DESERVE BETTER.

 

To everyone out there who most valiantly demands to be seen as human: we see you and we’ve got your back.
