In her first TV interview, Harvey Weinstein's former assistant, Zelda Perkins, speaks out on why she wants gagging laws to be changed, and why she has broken her non-disclosure agreement two decades after signing it

A former assistant to Harvey Weinstein, who accused him of attempting to rape a colleague 19 years ago, has called for a change to UK law on gagging orders.
Zelda Perkins worked for Weinstein's Miramax Films in the UK in the 1990s. She left after a co-worker said he'd tried to rape her, which he denied.
Ms Perkins told BBC Newsnight she tried to expose his behaviour but was told by lawyers she "didn't have a chance".
She signed a non-disclosure agreement but said the process was "immoral".
Ms Perkins was 24 when she signed the confidentiality agreement in 1998, which prevented her from speaking to anyone about the alleged sexual assault.
She's now broken her 19 years of silence - and the terms of her non-disclosure agreement - by speaking publicly about the movie mogul's mistreatment of women.
