    In contrast, she introduced students to research on the egalitarian behavior of bonobo apes, who over the course of evolution have eliminated male sexual coercion in their communities. If a male does get aggressive toward a female bonobo, she lets out a special cry, Rosenfeld explained. The other females come to her aid, descending from the trees and fending off the attacker.

    That January, Connie Leyva, a state legislator, had considered sponsoring legislation, requested by those lawyers, that would transform settlements for sexual harassment in California by banning confidentiality clauses and ensuring that future victims could speak out and name the perpetrators. This was the push that Katie Benner had mentioned to her Times colleagues in the Page One conference room.

    victims of sexual harassment deserved financial compensation, but settlements shouldn’t be used to cover up—and thus perpetuate—predatory behavior. “If there’s a serial perpetrator out there, you can’t keep these secrets repeatedly because the actions will continue,”

    Allred made the same case for confidential settlements that the reporters had already heard: They were better for clients, many of whom wanted privacy and feared being shunned by employers; going to court was risky and could take years. “Nobody has forced anyone to sign an NDA,” she told Megan. “Nobody is holding a gun to their head.”

    Fearful of going up against Weinstein, and all his power, in public, Matthau had quickly agreed to accept $125,000 in exchange for a legally binding promise to never speak of the allegations again, she said. “I remember John not negotiating that much because he thought I was an emotional wreck and couldn’t handle it,” Matthau explained. “He suggested I just take the mon

    During a visit to the Dirty Dancing set in Puerto Rico, Weinstein had insisted Matthau come to his hotel room for a private meeting to discuss future projects. Once they were alone, she said, he had pushed her onto the bed, fondled her breasts and masturbated on top of her. “I kept telling him, ‘Stop, I’m engaged,’” Matthau later told Megan. “But he kept saying: ‘It’s just a little cuddling. It’s not a problem. It’s not like we’re having sex.’” The next day, Weinstein had kept promising her more work, as if they were doing a business deal. “I didn’t want him to get away with it. I wanted to stand up for myself.”

    negotiated a settlement with Bill O’Reilly—one of those so breathtakingly restrictive that it had alarmed Emily Steel. In late 2016, when the public was first starting to learn about abuse of elite gymnasts by former team doctor Larry Nassar, Allred was working on a settlement that muzzled Olympic-medal-winning gymnast McKayla Moroney, one of the top names in the sport.

    Megan didn’t realize, and would never have suspected, that Allred’s firm was sitting on separate records about Weinstein, ones that had never come to the attention of the government or the public.

    Megan took her very seriously. She knew that as a young, single parent, Allred had struggled to collect child support, been raped at gunpoint at age twenty-five, and gotten an illegal abortion, which almost killed her. Allred’s drive to help protect other women and give voice to victims appeared to be the product of her own suffering.

    October 2016 while reporting on Trump’s treatment of women. After the release of the Access Hollywood tape, Allred represented several women who had come forward with allegations against Trump. She had put on tightly controlled press conferences, comforting her clients when they teared up in front of the cameras. When Trump lashed out at his accusers, Allred fought back.

    She no longer worked in Hollywood. Even more important, she had neither received money to stay silent nor signed a nondisclosure agreement. She began to wonder if she had a responsibility to speak because others could not.
