It is a mark of a tremendous shift in the mentality and the functioning of the system that finally is bending a bit to give women what they deserve. It is a celebratory moment for those who have been Weinstein’s unfortunate victims and a ray of hope for those who never voice against their predators out of fear of shame or social stigma.
