So, my survival plan was to avoid Harvey and men like him at all costs, and I did not know that I had allies in this….I wish I had known that there were women in the business I could have talked to.You see, I was entering a community that Harvey Weinstein had been in, and even shaped, long before I got there.He was one of the first people I met in the industry, and he told me, ‘This is the way it is.’ And wherever I looked, everyone seemed to be bracing themselves and dealing with him, unchallenged. I did not know that anybody wanted things to change.In March 2015, Filipina-Italian model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez filed a complaint with the New York Police Department, accusing the film executive of groping her breasts and putting his hand up her skirt in a meeting.

This is the time we, women AND men, denounce it loud so that we create a profound change and those terrifying things never happen again. I was part of a growing community of women who were secretly dealing with harassment by Harvey Weinstein.
But I also did not know that there was a world in which anybody would care about my experience with him.
After declining alcohol and announcing that I had school in the morning I left, uneasy but unscathed....
I said no to him professionally many times over the years...
