Rosanna Arquette and Rose McGowan are among activists showing support for women who accuse Russell Simmons of sexual abuse in the 'On The Record' doc.EqualityNow , dozens of people, celebrities and non-celebrities alike, shared words of encouragement. “It takes great courage for any survivors of sexual assault to come forward, especially publicly,” the statement said. “We admire the bravery of all of the Russell Simmons’ survivors and the #silencebreakers who stepped up to share their story in the @OnTheRecordDoc. We are unequivocally united in supporting the survivors in the film and all survivors of Russell Simmons. We want them to know: We believe you. We hear you. You deserve to be seen. #MeToo” Others on the list of"solidarity" include Alysia Reiner, Alyssa Milano, Evan Rachel Wood, Idina Menzel and Gloria Steinem. Earlier this month, Simmons' accusers spoke out ahead of the release of the documentary, which is scheduled to premiere Saturday at the Sundance Film Festival. Three women – Drew Dixon, Sil Lai Abrams and Alexia Norton Jones – sat down with CBS News' Michelle Miller Dixon says Simmons"violently tackled and raped" her in 1995 while she was working her dream job as an executive at Def Jam Recordings, which Simmons co-founded. "He was ordering me a car, and he told me to come upstairs and pick up a demo," Dixon said while sitting at a table with the other accusers and Miller."I thought I would be in his apartment for five total minutes. That's it. And he showed up naked, wearing a condom, and tackled me to his bed, while I screamed and fought and said, 'No,' and cried. That's rape." Abrams claims she briefly dated and"hung out" with Simmons before he raped her in 1994. She denies that the sexual contact was consensual. Norton Jones says she knew Simmons before he became a mogul in the hip-hop industry. She claims that he forced himself onto her during their first date in 1991.
