In an article in The New Yorker, Michelle Manning Barish, a political activist, alleged instances of abuse and physical violence against Schneiderman during a romantic relationship. Just hours after the report came out Monday night, Schneiderman resigned as the state’s top law enforcement official but said he strongly contested the allegations.
On Twitter, McGowan thanked Manning Barish for “your service and sacrifice.” But the latter said it was the actress who inspired her to speak out. eric schneiderman michelle barish, michelle manning barish age, michelle manning barish salman rushdie
“Because you you, my sister, @RoseMcGowan because of your bravery to speak truth to power and face your perpetrator, you have given so many women the strength to use their own voices,” Manning Barish wrote. “Bravery is contagious; but truth is unstoppable.”
McGowan was one of the first women to accuse movie mogul Harvey Weinstein publicly of rape. Her forceful criticisms of Weinstein and of Hollywood’s broader culture have made her a powerful voice in the #MeToo movement. eric schneiderman michelle barish

“All of a sudden, he just slapped me, open-handed and with great force, across the face, landing the blow directly onto my ear,” Manning Barish told the magazine. “It was horrendous. It just came out of nowhere. My ear was ringing.
“I sprang up, but at this point there was very little room between the bed and him. The choking was very hard. It was really bad. I kicked. In every fibre, I felt I was being beaten by a man.” eric schneiderman michelle barish, michelle manning barish age, michelle manning barish salman rushdie
On Monday night, Manning Barish tweeted a link to The New Yorker article and explained why she decided to talk.
“After the most difficult month of my life-I spoke up. For my daughter and for all women.
