Women on Twitter have things to say about Harvey Weinstein assault revelations.

Ask what's wrong with our society — and us — that they didn't feel they could.

@sallykohn, reacting Tuesday after The New Yorker and The New York Times came out with stories of more women accusing Harvey Weinstein of rape or sexual harassment. “Women felt they either had to endure Weinstein or get out of the business.

She wrote that, as a Nigerian woman, she felt proud to be the face of a beauty campaign.
