Caitlin Dulany: It was a life change because I couldn't understand it. I just left everything behind: friends, my dreams, everything. I felt like I had missed something – like promise, or intelligence, or moodiness. I got lost.
Melissa Thompson: Before, I was confident and optimistic. Then I got scared of everyone.
Jasmine Lobe: He said, "Promise you'll never write about me." For years, it devoured me. That's what started my writing career, strangely: this rodent that I needed to write this story. I showed it to a friend, and she gave me a column in a publication. It was this traumatic experience that led, in a way, to find my voice.
Larissa Gomes: Despite Harvey Weinstein's efforts, I'm still standing. We are all still standing.
Paula Williams: Like any fire you have to go through, it has strengthened me. I became a producer because I thought being an actress made me vulnerable to people like him. I wanted more control over my career.
Louise Godbold: People ask me if I was traumatized by the incident with Harvey. Yes and no. I didn't develop PTSD because I ran away – I was able to assert control. What I had no control over was having to see his face on the news for two and a half decades after that.
Ally Canosa: Whenever the press writes about Harvey Weinstein, they put a nice picture of his face in the article, and just looking at his face is traumatizing. The work I do in therapy includes desensitizing myself to these things so that I can move around the world normally.
Sarah Ann Masse: If I heard his name or saw him on television, I would be sick and anxious. It was clearly under the surface, ready to emerge at any moment.
Zoë Brock: I stopped trusting the powers that exist. I see what money and power can buy and I find myself doubting everyone's motivations. I don't trust judges, lawyers or the guy next to me at the cafe who smiles at me, or a woman on the bus, because they can be Mossad agents. Any last bits of ingenuity have been snatched from me.
Tomi-Ann Roberts: I kept doing theater, but got my doctorate. in psychology. For the rest of my life, I studied sexual objectification and the sexualization of girls and women.
Ally Canosa: Having my name in the press has been terrifying. I was trolled. I received messages from men on social media saying that I am a prostitute, a slut, a gold digger. Sometimes it has been almost unbearable.
Melissa Sagemiller Nesic: I didn't work for a year later. There were some casting directors who were my fans and, suddenly, they were no longer fans.
Rosanna Arquette: My heart is broken for not being able to do the work I would like to do. I want to be able to continue in the sector I chose.
Sarah Ann Masse: I was blacklisted for talking. I haven't auditioned in a year and a half. Friends are in rooms where the name of one of those who break the silence appears. And the casting director says, "Oh, no, we can't hire them. They are too political.” It's frustrating because Time & # 39; s Up and #MeToo were created on the back of all the men and women who were brave enough to perform. And we are paying the price with our careers, our health, our livelihood.
Ally Canosa: I got to a place where I knew that if I didn't speak, I would actually be telling him that what he did to me was fine. Choosing to speak was an incredibly difficult decision. I got very well into this knowledge that Harvey Weinstein would do everything possible to discredit my claims, hiding behind his facilitators, his money, his lawyers and now his insurance company.
