Asia Argento, who like McGowan was among the first to share her story with journalists last fall said in a statement to CNN: "After decades of abusing women with impunity, finally, the beginning of the end of Harvey Weinstein's reign of terror".
The Weinstein allegations "demonstrated that men who prey on women have handlers and enablers that allow them to assault and harass with impunity - silencing victims and ruining lives", said Debra Katz, a sex-harassment lawyer based in Washington, D.C.
The Manhattan district attorney´s office and police have been investigating Weinstein for months, coming under growing pressure from the Time´s Up movement and Hollywood actresses to bring the disgraced producer to justice.
Fallen Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein turned himself in to NY police on Friday to face sex crime charges, almost eight months after his career imploded in a blaze of assault accusations and triggered the global #MeToo movement.
Not too hard, though, because Mr. Weinstein is reportedly planning on pleading not guilty to the charges. "I didn't want to kick him or fight him".
McGowan said she has been talking with another one of Weinstein's accusers about possibly attending some of the courtroom proceedings. "This is the first time since written history that women are being believed - begrudgingly, but still".
"It was always my fault for not stopping him", she said. She has said he forced her to perform oral sex.
Godbold, 55, who runs a trauma-training NGO in Los Angeles, recalled two confrontations in 1991 with Weinstein, in NY and Los Angeles, where he allegedly exposed himself to her.
"This defendant used his position, money and power to lure young women into situations where he was able to violate them sexually", Manhattan Assistant Attorney Joan Illuzzi-Orbon said later, in words that brought raised eyebrows from the otherwise stony-faced Weinstein.
As he surrendered, the 66-year-old Weinstein found himself surrounded by lights and cameras in a spectacle he couldn't control. She tells the magazine that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex.
Harvey Weinstein has arrived at a police precinct in NY amid reports he is to be charged by authorities in the United States.
Weinsteins' decision to turn himself in was preceded by extensive discussions between his lawyers and prosecutors, Mueller says.
An official says the charges are likely to include one other victim who has not spoken publicly.
Two law enforcement officials say the charges are related to a former actress, Lucia (LOO'-sha) Evans, who says Weinstein assaulted her in 2004.
Women around the world came forward with similar cases of sexual mistreatment by men.
More than 75 women have accused Weinstein of wrongdoing around the globe.
"That was the culture then", said Weinstein.
