Thirty-five women who have accused Bill Cosby of sex assault appear on the current cover of New York Magazine in a stunning statement of unity against the legendary comic.
Cosby, who has not been charged with any crime, has repeatedly denied the accusations.
But they gained traction in recent weeks when a deposition from 2005 surfaced in which he admitted to obtaining Quaaludes in the 1970s with the intention of drugging women so he could have sex with them. He never admitted actually giving the drug to the women, however.
The issue has interviews with accusers, who described the alleged incidents in harrowing detail, including their difficulties in getting people to support them.
