Dylan Farrow Asks: Why Has Woody Allen Been Spared By #MeToo?

Dylan Farrow has accused Woody Allen of sexually abusing her

Woody Allen attends aWonder Wheel screening on November 14, 2017 in New York City.

"We are in the midst of a revolution", Farrow wrote in the piece, titled "Why has the #MeToo revolution spared Woody Allen?"

Winslet praised the "incredibly brave" women for coming forward against Weinstein and said she was "deeply shocked" by their allegations, but said that with Allen, she was willing to separate the art from the artist in order to work with the "incredible" director. And then, she points to the heart of the problem that remains within this swift sea change, even as Weinstein and others fall down around Allen: "It is also our collective choice to see simple situations as complicated and obvious conclusions as a matter of "who can say"?" She also said that comments from her brother Moses that Mia Farrow manipulated her daughter into testifying about Allen's actions are "devastating, but like so numerous attacks on my story, irrelevant: Moses was not there for the alleged assault".

Kate Winslet has nothing but niceties for her director Woody Allen's portrayal of women - even as his daughter, Dylan Farrow, calls out stars like Winslet for their enduring support. She also included statements from Blake Lively, another actress in Wonder Wheel, and Greta Gerwig, who has called Allen her "idol". Blake Lively made similar statements a year ago after working with the director on Café Society. "I could [only] know my experience". It meant the world to me when Ellen Page said she regretted working with Allen, and when actresses Jessica Chastain and Susan Sarandon told the world why they never would. In a November interview with Terry Gross on NPR's Fresh Air, Gerwig said in response to a question about Allen: "I think I'm living in that space of fear of being anxious about how I talk about it and what I say". Having thought it all through, you put it to one side and just work with the person. Farrow went on to list several aspects of her claims: that uncomfortable "grooming" behavior by Allen was witness by family and friends; that Allen was in therapy "for his conduct towards [Farrow]" at the time the alleged assault took place; and that Allen refused to take a polygraph test. "I told the truth to the authorities then, and I have been telling it, unaltered, for more than 20 years", Farrow wrote Thursday. Allen has always denied all of the allegations.

"It is a testament to Allen's public relations team and his lawyers that few know these simple facts", Farrow wrote in the Times. She claimed that after her brother Ronan wrote about how the firm "jumps into action whenever allegations resurface" in the Hollywood Reporter, the publication was barred from covering Allen's feature at the Cannes Film Festival.

Ultimately, Dylan wants everyone to be aware that while the "system" worked for Harvey Weinstein and other men for decades but eventually crashed, it's still working for Allen today - he's even now shooting a new film with no disruptions, and has said in the past that he's "moved so far past" the allegations made against him.

"I have long maintained that when I was 7 years old, Woody Allen led me into an attic, away from the babysitters who had been instructed never to leave me alone with him".
