Harvey Weinstein has been handed out a 23-year prison sentence on Wednesday. The movie mogul was convicted of rape and sexual assault charges in New York. Not only are the women in Hollywood breathing a sigh of relief, but B-Town actresses are also celebrating the decision of the court.

Speaking about the same, here are some actresses who spoke to a leading website about their reaction to this historic conviction in the United States Of America.

Finally! Better late than never. I hope it’s the beginning of many others who are held accountable. As for the MeToo offenders in Bollywood, I am the wrong person to answer that. Only the ones in authority can. But I can only hope and wish it happens asap.

I’d say it’s a victory for the victims and kudos to the judicial system that did a thorough investigation and brought Harvey Weinstein to justice. The stories of so many victims who are often questioned and shamed stand vindicated. Also kudos to the journalists who meticulously verified the accounts and built a strong verified story before publishing it.

Great move on part of the United States judiciary to bring a Harvey Weinstein, notorious perpetrator to justice in a landmark verdict. Just proves that when it comes to law and order and safety of women India needs to catch up with the US on speedy justice. While the Nirbhaya case of 2012 still awaits justice from her grave, Harvey Weinstein has got his comeuppance in the most powerful way. I applaud the US department of justice for this victory against sexual misconduct. A new era is dawning where karma will come and bite you sooner than expected. Heaven and hell are right here on earth!! Choose your actions wisely, folks.

Chalo at least one devil got his due, in India #MeToo seems to have been long forgotten.

Some women from B-Town also took to their social media accounts to talk about the historic judgment of Harvey Weinstein having been convicted for 23 years in prison. Have a look:
