RAINN Statement on Weinstein Sentence

“We are pleased that the court today recognized the seriousness of Harvey Weinstein’s crimes and sentenced him to significant prison time. We are grateful for all of the brave women who spoke out about Weinstein’s abuse. This case—and the national reckoning about the pervasiveness of sexual violence it sparked—will have a lasting legacy. We hope that survivors will feel encouraged to come forward, knowing that it can truly make a difference in bringing perpetrators to justice.” — Scott Berkowitz, president, RAINN
