New York Magazine, July 26, 2015
"Cosby: The Women, An Unwelcome Sisterhood," the cover of New York Magazine's latest issue reads. In a striking black-and-white cover image, 35 women who say they were raped by comedian Bill Cosby are photographed together. The dates of their respective attacks are written below each woman. Among the alleged victims who have spoken out (there have been 46 in total) are actress Beverly Johnson, supermodel Janice Dickinson and one of the stars of The Cosby Show TV series, Lily Bernard.
The magazine cover story comes after the 77-year-old Cosby denied all sexual assault allegations last Wednesday and asserted that one of his accusers, Andrea Constand, was slandering him by leaking evidence he gave to a court 10 years ago.
While Cosby has always declared his innocense, the allegations that first became public in October 2014 have ended his acting career and destroyed his reputation.
