For the #Hollywood #elite, #rape is the norm, women are simply prey

Until very recently, women who came forward with their accounts of sexual harassment at the hands of powerful men who held sway over their careers were viewed as traitors, whiners or pitifully naive to the ways of industries where a barter system — sex for fame — was all but implicit.

They sold their sexuality on screen and on stage, after all, the thinking went, so what did they expect when the cameras stopped rolling or the arena lights dimmed?

The few who were brave enough to come forward with accounts of being groped, coerced, threatened and even raped were sidelined, careers destroyed.
