In the week following International Women’s Day, Harvey Weinstein has today been sentenced to 23 years in prison for rape and sexual assault convictions.

The sentence came after over 100 women made public accusations against the former movie producer, including sexual harassment and rape.

From the journalists involved in breaking the original story to those who made allegations against him, we’ve summed up some of the most powerful reactions.

Jodie Kantor, a New York Times investigative reporter and author of She Said, was the first to break the story about Weinstein’s behaviour.

Mira Sorvino

Actress Mira Sorvino was one of the first women to publicly accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment in 2018 and that he caused damage to her professional reputation. She has since become a strong advocate for strengthening sexual assault laws in New York.
