Amid Lurid Headlines About Sexual Misconduct, Women Take Center Stage for a Very Different Reason

Oct 16, 2017  •  Post A Comment

Against the backdrop of the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct scandal’s barrage of lurid headlines and mounting allegations of widespread harassment in the entertainment industry, a gathering Thursday night at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel cast an entirely different light on the status of women in the television business.

Weinstein was clearly in the conversation at “The Paley Honors: Celebrating Women in Television,” as some of the participants — including 85-year-old Rita Moreno — recounted their own experiences with harassment. But if anything, the Weinstein scandal contributed to a sense of solidarity on a night that was all about celebrating women and their rich history in television.

TVWeek Open Mic writer Hillary Atkin filed a full report on the festivities, which you can read by clicking here.

  1. It is amazing that all of these women are speaking out, but not pointing any fingers. How many women will be harassed this year because these women continue to refuse to out these harassers. Has anything really changed? And this has all been about women, but young gay actors are getting the same harassment.
