This week THE WEEK has an insightful article by Ryan Cooper on sexual abuse by powerful men — and what enables them. Here’s the first paragraph to tempt you:
Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein’s career is over — or at least, it should be. This past week, a series of stories in The New York Times and The New Yorker detailed a history of alleged sexual harassment, assault, and rape — including testimonials from A-list celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie. Weinstein, whose Gawker-killer lawyer Charles Harder is reportedly preparing to sue the Times, has denied some of the charges, but he has also fled to Europe for “sex addiction” treatment — thus putting him out of the relevant criminal jurisdiction, in an odd coincidence.
