RAINN Statement on Weinstein Verdict

“We are grateful that Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty and will be punished for at least some of his crimes. We thank the survivors for their strength and resilience in the face of appalling treatment by the defense, which attempted to shift blame to anyone but Weinstein, the perpetrator. We hope that survivors everywhere will feel encouraged to come forward knowing that juries — and society — will believe them.” 

- Scott Berkowitz, RAINN president and founder
