It’s been nearly a year since the #MeToo movement launched, and its impact can be seen throughout the entertainment industry.

Over 550 prominent players within the entertainment industry have been accused of sexual misconduct. They include directors, writers, producers, actors, and as the latest news on Les Moonves has shown, even the CEO of a massive media corporation.

But what has happened to the men and women who came forward with their stories ? That’s just  the question TheWrap is planning to answer. In an exclusive 13-part series on the impact of the movement, TheWrap spoke with a dozen men and women who came forward with their own stories of alleged abuse and intimidation, and how coming forward has taken a toll on their lives. Many survivors  have experienced what experts call “secondary traumatization” as they faced losing their jobs, strained relationships, and attacks from trolls online.

Today on FilmWeek, TheWrap founder and editor Sharon Waxman joins host Larry Mantle and film critics Amy Nicholson and Justin Chang to discuss the impact of #MeToo on the entertainment industry as well as what has happened to the survivors of sexual assault and harassment #AfterMeToo.

The Wrap will be hosting the Power Women's Summit on November 1 & 2 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. For more information and to apply for a ticket, click here.
