As a fellow survivor, I believe, hear, and stand with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. I applaud her courage and strength in speaking out in a society that consistently blames, does not believe, and fails to support survivors and women. In a society that values men and their power over the lives, safety, and mental health of women and other survivors.
All of the attacks on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford are yet another example of our #rapeculture where men, and even some women, believe that it is okay to verbally attack, threaten, and attempt to discredit a brave woman speaking her truth. This lack of compassion, empathy, and humanity needs to stop. #BelieveSurvivors
Via @huffpostwomen I am here today not because I want to be. I am terrified. I am here because I believe it is my civic duty to tell you what happened to me while Brett Kavanaugh and I were in high school. Christine Blasey Ford gives her testimony regarding her allegation that the Supreme Court nominee sexually assaulted her when they were in high school. Like Anita Hill before her, Blasey chose to wear a blue suit to the hearing today. (photo credit Getty)
