Еще о феминизме

Сейчас бушует скандал с голливудским продюсером, Harvey Weinstein. Вот последняя статья на эту тему -- "Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Others Say Weinstein Harassed Them".

Я не все эпизоды прочитал, но и та часть статьи, которую я прочел, дает достаточно информации.

Paltrow, Jolie -- конечно, очень большие знаменитости. Но, насколько я понял, с харассментом Вайнштайна они столкнулись в самом начале своих карьер, когда они были куда более зависимы от подобных людей.

Другие же женщины, о которых рассказывается в этой статье, знаменитостями не стали. Я процитирую одну из них.
“Welcome to the Miramax family,” Mr. Weinstein told Katherine Kendall in 1993, she said. She was 23, and about that time he was selling his small movie company to Disney, which supplied the cash that would turn it into a cultural force.

After a meeting set up by her agent, he gave her scripts, including for the film “Beautiful Girls,” and invited her to a screening, which turned out to be a solo trip with Mr. Weinstein to a cinema near Lincoln Center in Manhattan. Afterward, he asked if they could swing by his apartment to pick something up.

Ms. Kendall said she was nervous, but it was daytime, and she relaxed when she saw pictures of his wife on the wall. “He’s keeping it professional, he makes me a drink, we talk about movies and art and books for about an hour,” she recalled. “I thought: He’s taking me seriously.”

He went to the bathroom, came back in a robe and asked her to give him a massage, she said. “Everybody does it,” he said, according to Ms. Kendall, and mentioned a famous model’s name. She refused; he left the room, and returned nude, she said.

“He literally chased me,” she said. “He wouldn’t let me pass him to get to the door.”

Ms. Kendall said his advances had a bargaining quality: He asked if she would at least show her breasts, if nothing else.

She said no to all of it, she recounted. “I just thought to myself: I can’t believe you’re doing this to me. I’m so offended — we just had a meeting,” she said. (Her mother, Kay Kendall, said in a brief interview that her daughter told her the story at the time.)

Ms. Kendall appeared in the film “Swingers,” distributed (but not produced) by Miramax, and has worked on and off as an actor since then. But she said the episode had dampened her enthusiasm for the business.

“If this is what it takes, I can’t do it,” she said.
Удивительно -- вернее, неудивительно, насколько эти истории похожи на истории, которые многие женщины тоже недавно рассказали о ныне покойном Роджере Эйлзе, бывшем CEO Fox News. Я о них писал в записи "О феминизме". Например, вот почти в точности тот же сценарий.
A former model on an incident on The Mike Douglas Show in 1967, when she was 16 years old:


"Ailes took me into this big office and locked the door with a key. ... He proceeded to pull down his pants and very gingerly pull out his genitals and said, ‘Kiss them.’ And they were red, like raw hamburger. ... I was a kid — I’d never seen a man’s privates before. I jumped up, but the door was locked and nobody was out there. He chased me around the office ... He said to me, ‘Don’t tell anybody about this. I’ve got it all on tape.’ I think he knew I was 16."
Повторю, пожалуй, то, что я написал в той записи.

Я думаю тем, кто считает, что женщины уже добились равного положения с мужчинами, интересно будет почитать, что говорят женщины, обвиняющие Эйлза Вайнштейна.
