Ashley Judd Reacts to Harvey Weinstein's Arrest

Ashley Judd, one of the first women to come forward with allegations against Harvey Weinstein, is speaking out after the disgraced producer was arrested following a long investigation.

Weinstein was charged with rape, sex abuse, and sexual misconduct for encounters with two women, the NYPD confirmed.

“That Harvey Weinstein, a powerful man who thrived and flourished as he shattered and abused women in a culture of impunity was arrested and charged is resoundingly significant. It is a watershed event, an irreversible pivot away from tacit and explicit license to exploit to clarity about unacceptable behavior no longer being tolerated,” Ashley wrote on Twitter.

“Today, these images of Harvey in handcuffs are possible because of the voices, backbone, & determination, in spite of the unknown & retaliation, demonstrated by survivors & the journalists who reported our stories,” she added.
