Susan Sarandon just came out hard against Woody Allen.
During a Variety and Kering’s Women in Motion talk she did with Geena Davis, she said, “I think he sexually assaulted a child and I don’t think that’s right. I have nothing good to say about him. I don’t want to go there.”
Welp, ya kinda did, but I’m glad.
Ms. Sarandon, thank you for standing on the side of so many victims whose attackers go unpunished, as was so eloquently put in Ronan Farrow’s recent essay for the Hollywood Reporter, “My Father, Woody Allen, and the Danger of Questions Unasked.”
Allowing men in a position of power to get away with the behavior the likes of Allen (click here for a detailed account of his documented behaviors) and Bill Crosby have been able to get away with is preposterous, and needs to end.
Victims need to be encouraged to tell their stories, and heard when they do.
As Sarandon said, she thinks he sexually assaulted a child, and she doesn’t think that’s right.
