She first publicly accused Allen of the assault in a 2014 open letter published by the New York Times, in which she adds he'd often "place his head in my naked lap and breathe in and breathe out".
Farrow has released a powerful statement to BuzzFeed, reiterating the fact that she supports this movement, but that real change is not as easy as wearing a pin or a certain color, or focusing on a handful of villains while ignoring others. The principles of the movement need to be applied consistently and without exemption'.

It has no leadership and members include Meryl Streep, Ashley Judd, Eva Longoria, America Ferrera, Natalie Portman, Rashida Jones, Emma Stone, Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon.
