Money often serves as a rationale for some of the industry’s noxiousness, including its sexism and racism: We can’t hire women, blacks, etc., because they don’t sell. Outsiders tend to see the industry as liberal, and while insiders do promote progressive causes, the business hews to a fundamental conservatism. This conservatism shapes its story recycling, its exploitation of women (and men) and its preservation of a male-dominated, racially homogeneous system. Despite pressure, including from the likes of Ava DuVernay and Lena Dunham, the industry resists change. Those in power don’t see an upside in ceding it.View all New York Times newsletters.From the women he allegedly abused, to the associates who allegedly knew about his behavior all along but stayed silent, to the A-list actors and actresses who depend on him for their career-making roles, many of the biggest Tinseltown titans are wondering what their lives — and show business itself — will look like in a post-Weinstein town.

And, as he rose, he supported women who supported him. In 2007, he presented a Crystal Award — given by Women in Film — to Renée Zellweger, a star of Miramax titles like “Chicago.”
Something has, since we never used to speak of these things at all. Yet much has not. After moving ever so briefly and slightly toward recognizing these realities, we’ve lately taken three steps back. Trump with his checkered history on these issues is in the White House. And his administration’s emphasis on due process for college students accused of sexual assault has unfortunately refueled old attitudes about false accusations and victim blaming. In a statement to the New York Times following the original report, Mr Weinstein said: “I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it. Though I’m trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go.” He also said he was working with therapists to “deal with this issue head on”. His wife of 10 years, British designer Georgina Chapman, said on Tuesday that she was leaving him.
