Gloria Allred and her daughter are known to be strong advocates for women’s rights, but only Gloria is sticking to her values when it comes to Harvey Weinstein‘s alleged sexual harassment.

Allred’s daughter is one of the lawyers representing and advising Weinstein, whose history of alleged misconduct was chronicled in an article on Thursday in the New York Times.

In a statement to The Blast, Allred says, “Had I been asked by Mr. Weinstein to represent him, I would have declined, because I do not represent individuals accused of sexual harassment. I only represent those who allege that they are victims of sexual harassment.”

Allred added, “While I would not represent Mr. Weinstein, I would consider representing anyone who accused Mr. Weinstein of sexual harassment, even if it meant that my daughter was the opposing counsel. This should not be interpreted as a criticism of my daughter. She has the right to decide who she represents and I will never second guess her decisions.”

Weinstein has said he plans to sue the Times over the article.
