Kevin Smith, whose career in Hollywood was made by Harvey Weinstein after the producer picked up his film Clerks, has announced that he will donate all future dividends from his Weinstein-related movies to the non-profit Women In Film. His Weinstein-related films are ClerksChasing Amy, DogmaJay and Silent Bob Strike BackJersey GirlClerks II, and Zack and Miri Made a Porno.

On one of his podcasts Hollywood Babylon, Smith said:

"No fucking movie is worth all this. Like, my entire career, fuck it, take it. It's wrapped up in something really fucking horrible," said Smith, adding: "I'm not looking for sympathy. I know it's not my fault, but I didn't fucking help. I sat out there talking about this man like he was a hero, like he was my friend, like he was my father and shit like that."

Women In Film advocates for and advances the careers of women working in the screen industries to achieve parity and transform culture. The organization monitors motion picture industry statistics in regards to the low number of women employed as directors, writers, producers and other below-the-line roles.

As of this writing, more than 40 women have accused Harvey Weinsten of charges ranging from sexual assault to rape including Ashley JuddAsia ArgentoGwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Rosanna Arquette, Kate Beckinsale, and Cara Delevingne.
