Group Makes Headway in Holding Harvey Weinstein's Accomplices/Former Board Members Accountable

PR Newswire

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Women United today announced that they have garnered 5,000 signatures in just the first week of the petition drive to remove the Paul Tudor Jones family name from all University of Virginia buildings. The petition drive, led by Women United Founder Catrena Carter, kicked off during the UVA versus Louisville basketball game on January 31st. The purpose of the grass roots effort is to hold Harvey Weinstein's accomplices/former board members like Paul Tudor Jones accountable.

"We are thankful that the people of Charlottesville are hearing us and responding," said Carter. The petition drive will continue for another week before petitions are delivered to University of Virginia President, Teresa Sullivan.

A similar effort to remove accused predator Steve Wynn was successful at the University of Pennsylvania.

"We applaud the leadership at the University of Pennsylvania and thank them for doing the right thing," continued Carter.

Catrena Carter is a 30-year veteran of both the civil rights and women's movements and has led successful, grassroots efforts around the country by getting women involved in the political process.

Women United is the next phase of the #MeToo movement. As their message states, now it's time to #DemandRespect. The group's grassroots effort will focus on shining a light on the structure of powerful and successful men that allow abuse to go unchecked and unreported, beginning with Paul Tudor Jones.
