#MeToo Founder Tarana Burke: Harvey Weinsteins of the World Can’t Exist Without “Systems of Power”

Disgraced former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein was convicted of first-degree commission of a criminal sexual act and third-degree rape, but acquitted of two more serious charges.

The #MeToo movement was heavily credited with being a movement that took down Weinstein. Tarana Burke is the founder.

“If we turn a blind eye to the systems that they operate in, then we’ll just have another Harvey Weinstein. … That’s why we have to upend the systems,” says Tarana Burke, founder of the #MeToo movement and #MeToo International.

Democracy Now! also speaks with award-winning actress Rosanna Arquette, who was one of the first women to share details of Weinstein’s sexual misconduct.
