Abstract for “Lupita Nyong’o: Speaking Out About Harvey Weinstein”

The article is about the Harvey Weinstein scandal which has a number of female celebrity victims who came out to say that they had been effected. One of these celebrities was Lupita Nyong’o. Lupita recants meeting Harvey, the first time that he sexually harassed her, feeling as though she had formed boundaries with him and another encounter in which he made unwanted advances. She speaks of turning down a future offer from him and his company. She ends with a rallying call of sorts, asking not only women to support victims but men as well. She encourages people to speak up in order to reclaim their power.
