Rutgers University: We Won’t Return Donations from Harvey Weinstein

, Accuracy in Academia, 1 Comment

The sexual assault allegations against Hollywood movie executive Harvey Weinstein is putting campaigns and universities into the spotlight, as they’ve received donations from Weinstein and there are demands to return them or donate it to a worthy cause.

Rutgers University said it won’t return the donation to their gender studies program:

In the wake of numerous allegations of sexual assault against movie producer Harvey Weinstein, Rutgers University will not return a $100,000 donation made last April from the H. Weinstein Family Foundation

The Daily Targum reports the donation is “part of a campaign to raise $3 million for the Gloria Steinem Chair in Media, Culture and Feminist Studies,” which — ironically — benefits the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies and “addresses the intersection of feminist studies and media culture.”
