Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison Wednesday for sexual assault and rape, over two years after horrific stories of the disgraced movie mogul's sexual misconduct began to surface. One of the victims--actor and activist--Rose McGowan, broke her silence and reacted to the news of Weinstein being sentenced to prison.

The actor took to her social media on March 11, the same day as Harvey Weinstein's sentencing and tweeted, "Let us be free". She once again added another tweet saying, "Today we exhale". The actor accused the producer of raping her after a screening of her film at the Sundance Film Festival over two decades ago. She also shared a picture of herself from when she was 23 years old and added the caption, "I was a 23-year-old girl when I was stolen by Harvey Weinstein. Today he was sentenced to 23 years. I thank the women who testified to put those 23 nails in his power coffin. Here’s to freedom, yours and mine."
After Rose McGowan, a lot of other celebrities also took to their social media to react to the producer's sentencing. Another accuser, Asia Argento also took to her social media as the judge laid down the verdict. She breathed a sigh of relief as justice was finally served and thanked the brave women who are helping to change the world.
