Rose McGowan, one of the many women to have accused Weinstein of rape, said in a statement on her Instagram, “I, and so many of Harvey Weinstein’s survivors, had given up hope that our rapist would be held accountable by law.

Harvey Weinstein turned himself into police in New York and was arrested and charged on criminal sex charges, seven months after over 100 women in Hollywood came forward accusing the disgraced producer of sexual misconduct.

Twenty years ago, I swore that I would right this wrong. Today we are one step closer to justice. We were young women who were assaulted by Weinstein and later terrorized by his vast network of complicity.

I stand with my fellow survivors. May his arrest give hope to all victims and survivors everywhere that are telling their truths.”

On Megyn Kelly Today, when asked what she would like to say to Weinstein if he might be listening, McGowan said, “We got you.”

She added that seeing him in handcuffs, despite the fact he could be seen smiling, is “a very good feeling.”

“I feel shocked,” she added. “I would say it’s just so big. I have to admit I didn’t think I would see the day that he would have handcuffs on him. I have a visceral need for him to have handcuffs on. … Predators eat people, and he ate a lot of my life and I want my life back. Since the news broke, even though his face is everywhere, I haven’t had a single nightmare for the first time.”

In an earlier interview with ABC, McGowan said, in reference to the justice she and his other victims feel, ”we were sentenced to a prison, we were sentenced to years of it before anybody believed us. … We had our lives stolen, we had our careers stolen.”

Weinstein was arrested ahead of Memorial Day weekend in the U.S., meaning he’ll have the benefit of receiving considerably less media coverage than he would otherwise, to which McGowan said, “It’s on a Friday of a holiday weekend, so, slow media, right? So they did something nice for him. It means he still has friends in high-up places.”

Asia Argento, one of the first actresses to come forward and accuse the producer of rape in an explosive New Yorker feature penned by Ronan Farrow last fall, tweeted, “What took you so long, Harvey? … Today, Harvey Weinstein will take his first step on his inevitable descent to hell. We, the women, finally have real hope for justice.”

That exposé and several ensuing reports ultimately led to a joint investigation by the Manhattan district attorney and the NYPD, while prosecutors continue to investigate his history of assault allegations in Los Angeles and London.

Weinstein was arrested on charges of rape, criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct in regards to two separate incidents involving two separate women, according to Deadline.

These incidents likely concern Boardwalk Empire actress Paz de la Huerta’s claims that Weinstein raped her twice in 2010, and a 2004 incident in which a college student named Lucia Evans said he forced her to perform oral sex on him. Despite so many women having accused Weinstein, all three of these cases are some of the few still within New York’s statute of limitations.
