“It took six women on the stand painfully recounting their rapes, 100 other women with the same story, thousands of pages of news coverage, books written, and Pulitzers won, to get [Harvey Weinstein] convicted on two lesser counts of the least bad rapes within a system that says there are degrees of rape. 

And we rejoiced.” 

EMILY ALFORD, “We Have Been Taught to Expect Nothing,” Jezebel, February 2020.
