A group of women called the Silence Breakers, who have accused disgraced media mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct or assault, are speaking at a press conference Tuesday following the disgraced media mogul's conviction. 

"The era of impunity for powerful men who rape people is over," actress Mira Sorvino said Monday, according to Reuters. She was speaking on a conference call with over a dozen Silence Breakers after Weinstein was found guilty of rape in the third degree and criminal sexual assault.
