Talk about a united front.

35 of the 46 women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault are gracing the cover of New York Magazine and are speaking out about the alleged incidents that have taken place over the past 30 years.

The women, in all black, pose while sitting in chairs, with their hands on their legs, feet perfectly flat on the ground and the date of the alleged abuse printed underneath. Of the women, world renowned model, Janice Dickinson can be seen on the far left, second row up and in the same row, famed model, Beverly Johnson, who claims she was drugged by Cosby in the 80’s.

And in the first row on the far right, you’ll find an empty chair which according to NY magazine is “to represent those women unable to tell their story.”

Last month, in a deposition by Cosby, the comedian admitted to getting prescriptions for Quaaludes back in the 70s with the intent to give them to women he wanted to have sex with.

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
