More and more survivors of sexual assault are speaking out amid one of Hollywood's greatest sex scandals, with at least 29 women accusing Harvey Weinstein of harassment.

Weinstein was rocked by stories in The New York Times and New Yorker magazine earlier this month, detailing years of alleged sexual harassment and abuse claims.

Eight such women shared their stories in the exposé, with Ashley Judd as one of the participants, Entertainment Weekly noted.

Shortly after the reports emerged, Weinstein was voted out of the independent film company he co-founded by the board of directors.

The crises only worsened after The New York Times brought forth new allegations in a follow-up article on Oct. 10.

Among those included in the repot were A-listers Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie.

Paltrow said Weinstein attempted to make advances on her after summoning her to his Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for a work meeting during production of the Jane Austen film adaptation "Emma."

"I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified," she said in the interview.

Jolie shared her experience with the Times in an email, saying "I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did."

The feature prompted a fresh wave of allegations against Weinstein to emerge, with each story sharing a similar narrative.

Rose McGowan, who was a participant in the initial expose, whipped up a media storm after speaking out against Weinstein and those who defended the Hollywood mogul and having her Twitter account temporarily suspended.

According to The Daily Mail, the actress reached a $100,000 settlement with Weinstein after she claimed he raped her in a hotel room in 1997.

Meanwhile, actress Kate Beckinsale joined the rapidly growing list of women accusing Weinstein of harassment, detailing how he had made advances on her when she was 17.

Beckinsale posted her account on Instagram, with similar undertones to the other women who have recounted stories of unwanted advances from the film executive.

The debacle resulted in Weinstein's wife, fashion designer Georgina Chapman, announcing publicly that she was leaving him, and it has left his professional life in ruins.

Most recently, reports that Harvey Weinstein was heading to a European rehab center for sex addiction evolved after a source told People magazine that the embattled Hollywood producer checked into a luxury resort in Arizona, causing another media frenzy.

Here is a list of 29 of the women who have spoken out against Weinstein, per Entertainment Weekly.
