Woody Allen's Daughter Calls Out Hollywood Hypocrites By Name

Woody Allen's Daughter Calls Out Hollywood Hypocrites By Name

Before the Golden Globes, Dylan wrote about how she had chose to write an open letter restating allegations that first surfaced in 1993, during a custody battle between Woody and her mother, Mia Farrow, after seeing him honoured at the 2014 Golden Globes.

Allen has continually denied Farrow's allegations. This is because of his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow's claim of sexual abuse against him in 1992, when she was seven.

Pompeo shared her story involving director James Toback, who was has at least 38 women accusing him of sexual assault, saying he was upset when she brought a male friend to a public event and then waited until she was alone until asking if she would appear naked in his film.

The Golden Globes are a time for celebrating those in the entertainment industry, but for Dylan Farrow, it's just a sad reminder that her calls for change have been ignored for years. That is an admirable and worthwhile objective, I hope these women change the world.

"The people who join this movement without taking any kind of personal accountability for the ways in which their own words and decisions have helped to perpetuate the culture they are fighting against, that's hard for me to reconcile", Farrow said.

Yesterday, the New York Times published a piece on Blanchett, who will headline the jury at this year's Cannes Film Festival, calling her a "vocal campaigner against harassment" and her appointment on the panel "an about-face for a festival with a poor record on gender equality". As part of the initiative, celebrities wore all black to the Golden Globes on Sunday as a quiet sign of protest against sexual violence.

The photo faced backlash from many social media users who saw the caption and the gesture as hypocritical behavior from the singer and actor who recently starred in Allen's latest film, Wonder Wheel.

"I struggle to understand how a woman who believes Woody Allen is "empowering to women" can claim the role as an advocate for women suffering from sexual harassment", Farrow said.

"I deeply regret working with Woody Allen on Wonder Wheel". I could [only] know my experience.
