Harvey Weinstein’s List of Accusers Now Totals 56 Women

Harvey Weinstein has now been accused of sexual harassment or assault by 56 women, almost as many as Bill Cosby.

Two new women have come forward over the past 24 hours, bringing the number of accusers up to 56. The most recent accusation came from Mimi Haleyi, who said in a press conference on Tuesday that while she was hoping to pursue a career in the entertainment business, Weinstein set up a meeting with her in a hotel room, during which he asked for a massage. On another occasion, she says that Weinstein forced himself upon her at his apartment.

The other woman who came forward recently is Zelda Perkins, who worked as Harvey Weinstein’s personal assistant in the 1990s. She told The Financial Times that Weinstein sexually harassed her for years and that she finally quit after a female colleague of hers told her that Weinstein had sexually assaulted her. She also says that she received a settlement of £125,000 and signed a non-disclosure agreement.

The stories of Haleyi and Perkins bring the total number of women who have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and/or harassment to 56. For comparison, Bill Cosby has been accused of rape by 60 women.

It was only a few weeks ago that The New York Times published its bombshell report that Harvey Weinstein had paid off dozens of women over the years after being accused of sexual harassment and assault. A few women went on the record in that report, and more went on the record in a separate report published by The New Yorker. In the subsequent weeks, many others began to come forward with their stories, including famous actresses like Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow. Some of the allegations are of inappropriate sexual advances, while others are of rape.

Most of the stories from Harvey Weinstein’s accusers are quite similar. Weinstein generally invites them to a work meeting at a hotel, having them sent up to his private room. He then begins to behave inappropriately, sometimes appearing at the door wearing only a bathrobe and usually asking for a massage. In some cases, the women say that they declined Weinstein’s advances and were able to escape the room, even as he tried to stop them. In other cases, the women say that Weinstein forced himself upon them. In virtually all of the stories, the women say that Weinstein used his power in Hollywood as leverage, promising them he could make them big stars if they slept with him and could ruin their careers if they didn’t.

Here are the 56 women who have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment or assault, with this list being up to date as of the afternoon of Oct. 24 and being presented in alphabetical order.

This list only includes women who have gone on the record with their story. The list of alleged victims of Weinstein would be longer if it factored in those women who have not chosen to reveal their identities, such as the female colleague who Zelda Perkins says was raped by Weinstein but who likely has not come forward due to her non-disclosure agreement. Weinstein also allegedly paid many women to be silent, spending hundreds of thousands of dollars doing so over the years.

Harvey Weinstein has denied all of these allegations of sexual assault and harassment. But in the weeks since the initial New York Times expose, he has been driven out of the entertainment industry, and he is currently in rehab in Arizona. Weinstein has been expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and the studio he co-founded, The Weinstein Company, plans to change its name and may not even be able to survive, with many of its projects dying as actors do not want to be associated with this scandal.

It remains to be seen Weinstein will be prosecuted for any of his alleged criminality, but New York’s attorney general is currently investigating The Weinstein Company, and The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating Weinstein for a sexual assault that is alleged to have taken place in 2013.
