APB's Mira Sorvino Appears on "The Today Show" to Discuss Her Role in the #MeToo Movement
11 Jun 2018
An Oscar winner, star of the new TV show Condor and a mother of four, Mira Sorvino appeared on The Today Show to share her thoughts on the arrest of Harvey Weinstein, his impact on her career and her part in the #MeToo movement. Sorvino spoke out about her experiences with Weinstein and the sexual harassment she was a victim of while promoting the 1995 film Mighty Aphrodite. After dodging Weinstein’s unwanted advances on two occasions, Sorvino experienced a lull in her career due to being blacklisted by Weinstein.
A proud mother of four, Sorvino is making huge strides for the #MeToo and “Time’s Up” movements in the hopes of making the future a brighter one for her children and future generations. In addition, she is currently working with California lawmakers on some of the strongest anti-sexual harassment legislation in the nation. It will outline the statute of limitations and training that must take place within companies to prevent such issues.
A lifelong champion of victims of social injustice, Sorvino—known as a "silence breaker"—was inspired by her mother’s participation in the march on Washington with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Bright, articulate and knowledgeable about the complex topics she speaks on, she continues to be a powerful voice for important global causes.
