More and more Actresses and women of the film businessman claiming sexual harassment by one of the most influential people in Hollywood, and on the social network Twitter TOP hashtag behind #metoo which is a put of concerned users.
But why this story got such wide attention? After all cases when the female lead roles hit the screen through the bed of the bosses of the studios, is a seemingly worn out topic for the industry?

In 1920-1930-ies such “informal” relations among Actresses and elite studios was considered almost nothing for granted, says film historian Sergei Kapterev. For example, diva of the time Joan Crawford was only narrowly saved from the harassment of the head of the Studio “MGM” Louis Mayer, hinting that will tell all to his wife. In more recent times, the topic of sexual harassment was completely banned, since the “stars” had a divine status, and about such mundane things to say it was not accepted. The silence was destroyed Marilyn Monroe, but then there was no scandal, as the artist claimed that he was not against such “liberties”. As for today, it can be assumed that first, much has changed society itself. Women have a voice and they can claim about infringement of their rights. But the question arises: why were they silent before? This is the “second”. Harvey Weinstein at number — very influential and wealthy man, almost a monopoly in the film industry. Why now he was accused, and whether they correspond to the truth? I’m not a supporter of conspiracy theories, and he pleaded guilty. But somehow suspicious that this scandal immediately associated with his political preferences. The producer vehemently supported the democratic party, and in the last election he donated huge money to the campaign of Hillary Clinton. Opponents of the Democrats now are trying to take advantage of this fact.
