(My Fox New York) -- New York magazine released a provocative cover photo Sunday night of 35 women who accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault over several decades.

Each of the women was interviewed separately for the article, according to the magazine. The alleged victims range in age from their early 20s to 80.

The powerful cover image has sparked discussion about sexual assault across social media today, using the hashtag #TheEmptyChair to represent survivors of sexual violence unwilling or unable to come forward about their experiences.

Last week, the NY Times released a court deposition which revealed the comedian and actor gave Quaaludes to women in order to have sex with them.

Cosby said he paid women after having sex with them and went to great lengths to hide his behavior and the payments from his wife.

The 78-year-old comedian was testifying under oath in a lawsuit by a former Temple University employee, Andrea Constand, who says he molested her.

He says he offered to pay for Constand's education and had paid other women after they had sex with him.

He also admits he funneled money to some of the women through his agent so his wife wouldn't find out.

During the questioning, he says he was a good reader of women and called Constand a liar.

More than 40 women have accused Cosby of sexual assault.

He has denied the accusations.
