In this episode, I’m talking with actor, survivor, activist, Rosanna Arquette who speaks truth to power. With the courage of a lioness, Rosanna Arquette faces the behemoth Harvey Weinstein when she breaks her silence with reporter Ronan Farrow in the New Yorker and in the New York Times (with Jodi Cantor, 2017) about how Harvey Weinstein sexually abused her at the Beverly Hills Hotel. 

Ronan Farrow broke the Weinstein story and believed Arquette and the other women coming forward who told harrowing stories and allegations of being sexually assaulted, raped, violated by Weinstein. And how the Weinstein henchmen, secret operatives,  lawyers, and PR teams, came after these women, their lives, careers, families, and future, relentlessly. 

This is exciting, a no holds barred interview. Hang on to your seats, because this interview gets interesting, deep, and soulful.

Rosanna Arquette bravely breaks the Hollywood “code of silence”, risking everything to help other survivors have a voice, AND says, #MeToo.

Without Farrow and Arquette, Harvey Weinstein, may not be in prison today. Leaving other young girls and women at risk of forever bearing the tattoo of sexual assault by the rich, and powerful. 

We talk about other victims of Harvey Weinstein who also had the courage to speak out and tell their own stories of being sexually assaulted, abused, and violated by him. Victims who are now part of the movement to stop sexual assault and sexual predators. The brave women who spoke truth to power like Mira Sorvino, Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan, Kate Beckinsale, and Cate Blanchett. Arquette mentions Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow and the stories they told of nearly being abused by Harvey Weinstein. Brad Pitt’s outrage and defense of his then-girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow, and Ben Affleck’s statement about Weinstein’s sexual violence against women.

We openly discuss Hollywood and the environment that often enables sexual assault and violence.  About being a sexual assault survivor, justice warrior, SHEroe bout trauma, healing, and resilience. 

Rosanna Arquette is talented. She is beautiful. She is brave with courage and heart, to break the silence against kingmaker, Harvey Weinstein. Come join us, for an intimate conversation with this talented superwoman and justice warrior, Rosanna Arquette.
