Thirty-five women who have accused Bill Cosby of rape or sexual assault have appeared on the front cover of New York magazine.

The image, in black and white, shows the women sitting on wooden chairs with their hands clasped on their laps.

The publication interviewed 35 of the 46 women who have publically come forward to accuse the veteran entertainer for its cover story.

Cosby, 78, has denied all of the allegations and has not been charged.

Barbara Bowman, one of them woman who features on the cover, said her agent introduced her to Cosby when she was a 17-year-old in 1985.

She said over the next few years she met with Cosby and was repeatedly drugged and raped by him.

“I felt like a prisoner; I felt I was kidnapped and hiding in plain sight,” she told the magazine.

“I could have walked down any street of Manhattan at any time and said, ‘I’m being raped and drugged by Bill Cosby’, but who the hell would have believed me? Nobody, Nobody.”

The cover story comes just weeks after it was revealed Cosby admitted in a 2005 deposition to giving young women he wanted to have sex with Quaaludes, a drug that can induce sedative and hypnotic states.

“I’m a pretty decent reader of people and their emotions in these romantic sexual things, whatever you want to call them,” he testified in the deposition.

Since the allegations surfaced last November, Cosby has seen his career and reputation as America’s gently chiding father figure crumble, as his performances and productions have been cancelled across the country, along with reruns of his hit 1980s TV series, The Cosby Show.
