The latest issue of New York Magazine published on Sunday night features on its front page 35 of the 46 women who had accused the sitcom actor Bill Cosby of sexual assault.

 

The black-and-white photo shows 35 women sitting side-by-side on chairs, one chair remained empty. Hashtag #TheEmptyChair was used to represent the women who keep silence about suffering assault.

The story written by Noreen Malone includes 35 interviews of the women from the New York Magazine’s front page. Under every woman is printed a date, when they were sexually assaulted by Cosby. All Cosby’s victims are diverse, starting from age to race, but they have something similar and that is their assaulter.

The hashtag #TheEmptyChair almost immediately started spreading online. A lot of people used it to share their own stories about how it is to be the person in the empty chair.

The whole incident encouraged people to start talking and make those who are guilty face the consequences of their crime.

The Monday issue of New York daily News also chose as its cover story incident with Cosby, calling him ‘America’s rapist’. That entitlement was so powerful that left many Americans shocked.

Around 40 women have accused Cosby of assaulting them sexually but due to the fact that those allegations date back decades ago, he has never been prosecuted.
