In October 2017, the New York Times and the New Yorker each published an investigation into producer Harvey Weinstein. Twelve women, unknown and famous, accuse him of sexual harassment… before another sixty names emerge.
If Weinstein falls, he’s not the only one. The worlds of the media, entertainment and politics are shaking — even the British Defence Secretary is forced to resign. #MeToo, #TimesUp : testimonies are multiplying, social networks are burning. An unprecedented movement is triggered.
For the first time, we cannot ignore the daily harassment suffered by women, nor its systemic — even systematic — dimension. Facing such a magnitude, our society questions the place and treatment reserved for those it has for too long considered as “the weaker sex”.
After the Cannes Film Festival and its traditional ballet of couture dresses, how does the fashion world behave? While Weinstein has just surrendered to American justice, what happens to the heroines who continue to make this revolution possible?
It’s high time the shame changed sides…•
