Meryl Streep has been targeted with 'She Knew' posters

Harvey Weinstein

This assumption is unfair and damages the #MeToo movement by pitting women against women.

Amber Tamblyn and Rose McGowan have been two of Hollywood's most outspoken voices in the sexual harassment scandals that have rocked the industry. The actress and activist, one of Weinstein's survivors and one of the women who helped bring him down, took exception to the announcement about next year's award ceremony. "YOUR SILENCE is THE problem", she wrote. "Maybe you should all wear Marchesa", the fashion line of Weinstein's ex-wife, Georgina Chapman.

Supporters of Streep-including her onetime co-star Cher-argue that McGowan is focusing on the wrong villain.

Streep said she "wasn't deliberately silent" in Weinstein's treatment of women in Hollywood because she didn't know it was happening.

She goes on to defend herself against the charge of complicity-"I wasn't deliberately silent". "I don't tacitly approve of rape".

Ms. Streep denied she knew anything. HW needed us not to know this, because our association with him bought him credibility, an ability to lure young, aspiring women into circumstances where they would be hurt. "It's very hard to stand up and say this is what happened and have an administration saying I'm lying". "Apparently he hired ex Mossad operators to protect this information from becoming public". The placement of the accusatory messages indicated that their creator hoped to target Streep's awards campaign for her upcoming starring role in "The Post", a Steven Spielberg film distributed by 20th Century Fox.

So the question now is whether, at some point, McGowan will place a call to Streep and this battle will resolve into a love fest.

Meryl Streep defended herself after Rose McGowan criticized her in a tweet Saturday.

Speaking to The Daily Beast website about their relationship at George Washington University in 2001, she said he punched her in the mouth while they were having sex on one occasion.

It's not up to anyone else, and certainly not this writer, to suggest how Rose McGowan should or should not feel. "She's swiping at us so we're swiping back".

There are even more who hold a different view, saying it doesn't matter if Meryl Streep knew or not: blaming her or directing the focus of the #MeToo campaign against her is wrong.

She got £125,000 (S$225,000) as part of the settlement, but does not know whether the conditions regarding therapy were upheld. Streep has not commented on the posters, which also contain a QR code that leads you to a Bitcoin address.

Meinzer mentioned that it's hard for women to speak up, when "so much of how we're taught to live in this world as women is to keep the peace, to smile, to try to giggle it off, to try and say 'that's fine, ' when it doesn't feel fine".
