“Open secret” is one term that has been used over and over again to describe disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein’s behaviors.
As more women speak up about how they were harassed – and in some cases, assaulted – by Weinstein, the fact that what he did was widely known and unexposed has become as unfathomable as the revelations themselves.

As revelations of sexual harassment in different industries – from Fox News, to Hollywood, to Silicon Valley – come to the fore, do you feel more empowered to speak out about exploitative behaviors in your workplace?
In a Time magazine essay, actor Mira Sorvino has detailed why she decided to speak out in a New Yorker article about her experiences with Weinstein and has issued a call to action for other women to follow suit, whatever industry they are in. How have the Weinstein revelations impacted you?
