On Saturday Uma Thurman, the actor who starred in multiple films associated with the Weinstein company, made a powerful comment on the allegations of sexual assault made against Hollywood stars and studio executives.

Speaking to Access Hollywood, Thurman was asked, 'as such a powerful woman in film, what are your thoughts about women speaking out about inappropriate behaviour in the workplace?'.

I don't have a tidy sound bite for you because I have learned I am not a child and I have learned that when I have spoken in anger I usually regret the way I express myself.

So I have been waiting to feel less angry and when I'm ready I will say what I have to say.
