After Time Magazine revealed the Time Person of the Year as the silence breakers– who came forward and inspired the #metoo movement– and one of them revealed new details about Harvey Weinstein to the New York Times. Weinstein had bibles, not THE Bible, but his own personal bible, like the world according to Harvey.
It included hints on facilitating encounters with women, and that staffers were required to procure his penile injections for erectile dysfunction. When the woman who talked about this complained, she was told if he gets physical (as in, he hits you) let them know.
Alyssa Milano was one of the people who came forward, and earlier this year she was on the Today show with Megyn Kelly about the #MeToo movement. Kelly asked her whether Donald Trump played a role in the whole movement.
Had Trump never been elected, would the #MeToo movement ever have come about?

Her mother would ignore her and abuse her, mentally and physically.
Harding is 47 years old, and she saw her career come to an end after her assault against Nancy Kerrigan.
