Two of the key leaders and initiators in the #MeToo movement, Rosanna Arquette and Academy Award-winner Marisa Tomei talk about what people can do to promote the empowerment of women.
These women have paid tribute to all of the women who have spoken out during the #MeToo movement. Rosanna was one of the first to accuse disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein at the 2018 SAG awards.
“We are inspired that so many powerful voices are no longer silenced by the fear of retaliation,” Rosanna told the audience.
“We are honored to be a part of this supportive and creative community, and we are inspired that so many powerful voices are no longer silenced by the fear of retaliation. We can control our own destiny.” Marisa said. She then said to Rosanna, “You are one of those voices. You are one of those silence breakers, and we all owe you a debt of gratitude.”
“I’m here supporting many women: Asia Argento, Annabella Sciorra, Ashley Judd, Daryl Hannah, Mira Sorvino. So many,” Rosanna added. “Anthony Rapp, Olivia Munn. All of you, thank you.” (Quotes from JustJared)
