Time magazine is putting the Harvey Weinstein controversy front and center, featuring the Hollywood producer — who was recently hit with accusations of sexual harassment and assault from more than a dozen women — on their latest cover.

For the Oct. 23 edition, Time featured a black and white photograph of Weinstein’s face with the words “Producer. Predator. Pariah.” to the left.

The cover story, “Harvey Weinstein and What Happens Next,” examines the powerful producer’s career along with the many sexual harassment and assault claims from women who’ve come forward to tell their stories so far — including well-known actresses Ashley Judd, Asia Argento, Mira Sorvino, Roseanna Arquette, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Angelina Jolie, to name a few.

Time’s Jill Filipovic discussed the public reaction to the Weinstein fallout and touched upon other high-profile men, like actor Bill Cosby, former president of Fox News Roger Ailes, and President Donald Trump,  who’ve found themselves in the center of sexual harassment accusations in the past.

She examined why women are so hesitant to speak up in cases like these, and how crucial it is that men speak up to defend women, ending the article by admitting, “The men who are supposed to be on our side, though — these men are the ones who break our hearts.”

After the New York Times released its original report featuring eight women who spoke out against Weinstein, The New Yorker dropped a scathing exposé that revealed accusations of rape against the producer. 

Since then, four members of Weinstein’s (all-male) board have resigned, Weinstein was fired from his company, and other women and men in Hollywood have continued to come forward to discuss experiences with sexual harassment in the industry.
