The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Board of Governors has been wrestling with something they promised to do at that fateful October 14th meeting when they stripped accused sexual predator Harvey Weinstein of his Academy membership.

Following Tuesday night’s Board meeting, Academy CEO Dawn Hudson sent out an email to Academy members, below.
