Asking women why they didn’t report their sexual assault right away is akin to asking someone why they didn’t report their own kidnapping – Aparna Nancherla
Today, my thoughts are with Dr. Christine Basley Ford as she testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee and while I had hoped to never see a repeat of what happened to Dr. Anita Hill – I fear that is just what will be in store for her today and it makes me so very sad.
I am also thinking about Deborah Rodriguez and Julie Swetnick, too. Their bravery at speaking out is powerful!
I believe them all – entirely, completely, and without any reservation or hesitation.
And, while it seems the tide is turning – that the moral arc of the universe is bending towards justice – we still have a very, very long way to go.
