Oprah Winfrey & Ava DuVernay Talk Turning 'Pain to Beauty' in Light of Hollywood Harassment Cases (Exclusive)

Meanwhile, DuVernay wants to turn the conversation around and help the victims instead of focusing on the culprits.

“I think we need to take the spotlight and turn it away from what these very foul, misguided, sexist, misogynistic, rapist, pedophiles have done and turn it to the people who have been harmed. And turn that pain to beauty,” DuVernay tells ET. “I think art is a way to do that, and so many of the women who have been affected by it are artists. I encourage, and bolster, and support women to find ways to turn that pain into beauty. I believe we will. We’ve always done that, so it’ll happen again.”
