The Harvey Weinstein case is heading for media coverage this week and we have heard that at least three bisexual women are involved.

This scandal of sexual harassment in Hollywood by a producer against famous or not famous actresses is constantly developing. Every day, actresses speak and reveal that they have been victims of this pervert.

Among these actresses are three bisexual actresses namely Angelina Jolie, Cara Delevingne and the French actress Emma de Caunes.

Delevingne has published a statement in which she tells what happened when she met Weinstein.

"A year or two later, I went to a meeting with him in the lobby of a hotel with a director about an upcoming film. The director left the meeting and Harvey asked me to stay and chat with him. As soon as we were alone he began to brag about all the actresses he had slept with and how he had made their careers and spoke about other inappropriate things of a sexual nature. He then invited me to his room. I quickly declined and asked his assistant if my car was outside. She said it wasn't and wouldn't be for a bit and I should go to his room. At that moment I felt very powerless and scared but didn't want to act that way hoping that I was wrong about the situation. When I arrived I was relieved to find another woman in his room and thought immediately I was safe. He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction," she wrote.

"I swiftly got up and asked him if he knew that I could sing. And I began to sing....i thought it would make the situation better....more professional....like an audition....I was so nervous. After singing, I said again that I had to leave. He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips. I stopped him and managed to get out of the room. I still got the part for the film and always thought that he gave it to me because of what happened. Since then, I felt awful that I did the movie. I felt like I didn't deserve the part. I was so hesitant about speaking out....I didn't want to hurt his family. I felt guilty as if I did something wrong. I was also terrified that this sort of thing had happened to so many women I know but no one had said anything because of fear."

She also encourages women victims of sexual harassment to speak, although it is not always easy.

She added on Instagram: "I want women and girls to know that being harassed or abused or raped is NEVER their fault and not talking about it will always cause more damage than speaking the truth," she wrote.

"I am relieved to be able to share this....I actually feel better and I'm proud of the women who are brave enough to speak. This isn't easy but there is strength in our numbers.

"The more we talk about it, the less power we give them. I urge you all to talk and to the people who defend these men, you are part of the problem."
