“The Sopranos” star,Annabella Sciorra told The New Yorker that she was raped by HarveyWeinstein in the early 1990s and was sexually harassed by him for several years after that.
Sciorra alleges that one night after a dinner event in New York, Weinstein offered to drop her off at her apartment and then a while later, when she was in her nightgown, he barged into her place and violently raped her. For months afterward, Sciorra said she told no one and never went to police. “Like most of these women, I was so ashamed of what happened,” she said. The actress said she felt she was retaliated against after the alleged assault. “I just kept getting this pushback of ‘We heard you were difficult; we heard this or that.’ I think that that was the Harvey machine,” she said.
Weinstein was terminated by the board of the Weinstein Company in light of the allegations and later resigned from the board of directors. He was also expelled by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
