STATEMENT ON HARVEY WEINSTEIN BY ANNA WILDING

****
DIRTY HARVEY
****


Anna Wilding





Actress Anna Wilding released the following statement about allegations on Harvey Weinstein today.



Dirty Harvey Weinstein
Everyone knew about Harvey. I myself had several occasions dealing with Miramax.One year at Cannes Film Festival 2 male colleagues stepped in and physically shielded me from Harvey when we were about to go up on an elevator together. I was one of the women who stood up and said No to men for this kind of behavior. I walked away from it, from major contracts. It disgusts me to read the lengths Harvey went to. Assault is reprehensible. Harvey is not alone in his behavior. There were and are others. And everyone knew and knows. Sadly some girls Were complicit, or worse assaulted. If you are one of those who said No like me You suffered. Saying No cost me my acting career, income  and denied me opportunities.I have been assaulted before. It's not pleasant.

LEMON MERINGUE is a compelling success story that should not be missed. It will leave your heart soaring.

LEMON MERINGUE is an Equity Approved Showcase


Rich Ryan (Writer) is a devoted father of three who lives on Long Island and works in New York City. Rich is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. Since breaking his silence in 2003, Rich has been dedicated to raising awareness about childhood sexual abuse and helping others heal from the effects. He has attended many male survivor conferences and his artwork has been displayed at several survivor art shows. In 2010, Rich made an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show to share his story with a group of 200 male sexual abuse survivors and a national television audience of 15-20 million people.

Rich is a fervent believer in the notion that victims of abuse have the power to live full, rewarding lives. Recognizing the profound impact that sharing one’s story can have on the healing process of others, Rich felt inspired to write Lemon Meringue – a one-act play that chronicles the story of a man struggling with and overcoming the effects of childhood sexual abuse. This is his story. For Rich, the process of writing a play for the first time – particularly a play addressing this subject – has been both challenging and rewarding.

Rich has dedicated Lemon Meringue to all of the men and women who have perished from the effects of childhood sexual abuse as well as those who continue to struggle.
