The list keeps getting longer.
Since April 2017, more than 250 powerful people — celebrities, politicians, CEOs, and others — have been the subject of sexual harassment, assault, or other misconduct allegations. More survivors are coming forward nearly every day, many of them inspired and emboldened by those who have gone before.
Vox has compiled — and continues to update — a running list of influential people from a variety of industries who have faced new public accusations of sexual misconduct since Fox News host Bill O’Reilly was forced to resign in April 2017.
We decided to start our list with O’Reilly because his departure from Fox helped set the stage for reports against Harvey Weinstein — which, in turn, helped raise awareness around the #MeToo movement and kick off the reckoning around sexual misconduct that continues to this day, in Hollywood, Washington, and around the country.
So far, 147 people have been added to the list since it was first published in December 2017. We have also removed two people because we determined they did not fit the criteria for inclusion on the list. One was accused of inappropriate behavior toward women but was not publicly accused of sexual misconduct. The other was in an entry-level position and so was neither powerful nor influential.
