New Accuser Says Harvey Weinstein ‘Preyed’ on Her in the ’90s

Another woman has spoken out about Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct after the studio mogul was fired from his own company on Sunday following the revelation of a slew of sexual assault allegations.

Louise Godbold, co-executive director of the non-profit Echo Parenting & Education in Los Angeles, wrote a blog post in which she described an encounter with Weinstein in the ’90s, when she was taken on an “office tour that became an occasion to trap me in an empty meeting room, the begging for a massage, his hands on my shoulders as I attempted to beat a retreat … all while not wanting to alienate the most powerful man in Hollywood.”

Godbold said Weinstein later contacted the friend who introduced Godbold to him to make sure that she would not “make a complaint about his behavior.” Her blog post also applauded the women who came forward to share their stories about Weinstein and detailed the effects that sexual trauma could have on women.

Weinstein is widely considered one of the most powerful producers in Hollywood and co-founded the Weinstein Company with his brother Bob in 2005. Weinstein has been accused of sexually harassing women, with his actions allegedly ranging from asking for sexual favors to trapping a woman in a restaurant hallway and masturbating in front of her.
