If in a movie, Harvey Weinstein would probably cut the scenes of sexual harassment that have been described against him.Weinstein's ouster may have been a long time coming, with allegations going back to 1990 .Such a male-dominated culture could have contributed to the conditions that allowed the alleged incidents involving Weinstein to occur, and to remain quiet.On Thursday, The New York Times reported that Weinstein reached settlements with at least eight women over sexual harassment allegations.On Monday, some of the actresses who have frequently starred in and won awards in Weinstein's movies spoke up, including Meryl Streep and Judi Dench.Patricia Arquette, Lena Dunham, Mark Ruffalo, Brie Larson, Kevin Smith, Judd Apatow, Julianne Moore and many others have voiced their support for the women involved.If this is to be a turning point for Hollywood, more must be done, Rose McGowan told The Hollywood Reporter. The Times reported that McGowan settled with Weinstein in 1997 after an incident in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival.
