All 71 Men Accused of Sexual Harassment After Weinstein

00 The Weinstein Effect

Since The New York Times published its investigative report exposing Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein as a serial predator on October 5, the dam has broken and countless  powerful men across industries have been accused of sexual harassment and/or abuse. The report from Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey peeled back the veneer of normalcy around sexual harassment and the old “boys will be boys” adage to help spur the #MeToo movement in which survivors of harassment and abuse have added their voices to the ever-growing numbers of people speaking out about their own experiences.   

It’s been nearly two months since the Weinstein story broke, and the “Weinstein Effect” has since taken down dozens of other men, including Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, and James Toback, who’ve allegedly used sexual harassment and power to terrorize hundreds of victims. The insidiousness of the crimes has varied from sexually explicit or inappropriate comments to rape, but the abuse of power and, often, collusion of other powerful people to keep the crimes under wraps have been common denominators. 
 
Here are the 71 men who’ve lost their jobs or resigned, or who face multiple allegations of sexual harassment or assault since the  Times story was first published.
