#MeToo is a movement that was started where victims of rape or sexual assault/misconduct could come forward to share their experiences and stories. It started with the intention of warning others against known predators in various industries, but soon gained momentum and became a powerful feminist movement seeking justice against powerful predators.

How long will Weinstein's case go on?

NewsBytes

Answered by

It is not possible to say how long the case will go on. The prosecution will try for a quick indictment to save the victims the trauma of attending the court proceedings for a long time. The defense will try to keep Weinstein out of jail and free him of all charges. We expect the case to be drawn out.
