The school’s Hutchins Center for African and African American Research decided to revoke the W.E.B. Du Bois Medal on Tuesday in light of allegations of sexual abuse against the movie mogul.

Weinstein was given the award in 2014 along with seven others, including Oprah Winfrey and Maya Angelou. It’s considered Harvard’s highest honor in the field of African and African American Studies.

The center’s leaders said they stand with “the women who have courageously come forward” to fight for themselves and “all of those who have experienced similar abuse.” So Harvard University Rescinds 2014 Medal Awarded to Harvey Weinstein

Weinstein was fired from the film company he started following allegations of sexual harassment and rape from more than three dozen women.

The allegations made against Weinstein date back decades. Actresses such as Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd and Gwyneth Paltrow have spoken out.

Since the allegations have come to light, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has revoked Weinstein’s membership.
