Superhero actresses are using their power to take on Hollywood sexual harassment

The post comes days after Warner Bros. suspended Kreisberg amid accusations of sexual harassment by multiple women, The Hollywood Reporter noted.

"The Flash" star Grant Gustin is the latest CW actor to speak out regarding the sexual harassment scandal surrounding executive producer Andrew Kreisberg.

"Supergirl" castmate Chyler Leigh followed up by posting Sunday to Instagram, beginning with a Maya Angelou quote to urge women to support each other: "Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women". "These women are the real superheroes and they should be treated as such".

Berlanti Productions, the studio behind those superhero series, said Friday in a statement: "We were recently made aware of some deeply troubling allegations regarding one of our showrunners".

"Arrow" star Emily Bett Rickards addressed the topic in a broader manner, calling all the men who have committed harassment or turned a blind eye to it "weak and complicit".

Roy Halladay remembered: Memorial today in Florida
Halladay pitched for the Toronto Blue Jays from 1998 to 2009 before being traded to Philadelphia before the 2010 season. He threw a ideal game in 2010, and that fall pitched only the second postseason no-hitter in big league history.

Warner Bros. has yet to reveal whether their investigation has concluded, so no result has been released yet. "I think we can do this because we promote and champion a safe and progressive work environment".

Kreisberg has vehemently denied the allegations, but as the in-house investigation continues, Amell, who portrays the titular Green Arrow vigilante on TV, has spoken out to lend his support to any victims of sexual harassment or assault, offering to help them report any bad behavior to their superiors. X-Men co-star Paquin corroborated her account on Twitter.

And Page Six reported last week, citing only an unnamed industry source, that "Wonder Woman" actress Gal Gadot had issued an ultimatum to try to force Ratner off any "Wonder Woman" sequel.

Momoa apologized last month after video resurfaced of a "Game of Thrones" rape joke he made during a Comic-Con presentation in 2011. I'm in awe of not just all the women who have spoken out these last few weeks, but any woman who has ever done so.

"I'll head back to work on "Supergirl" even more committed to being part of changing the norm by listening when people speak up, and refusing to accept an environment that is anything less than a safe, respectful and collaborative space", Benoist wrote.
