#MeToo movement says it’s still standing strong after landmark conviction against Harvey Weinstein overturned

Fatima Goss Graves, president of the National Women’s Law Center and co-founder of the legal defense fund Time’s Up, said the decision was a “step in the wrong direction, devastating news for the Silence Breakers, the brave women who at great personal risk told their stories of sexual abuse in 2019. We want them to know they are not alone.” “The decision,” added Goss Graves, “does not erase the truth of what happened. It does not alter the reality that Weinstein is a serial sex offender who exploited his power for decades. It does not alter the reality that he was also sentenced in 2022 in Los Angeles to 16 years in prison.”
