Hollywood Actress Alyssa Milano Expresses Support for Victims and Survivors of Sexual Assault
Alyssa Milano will raise her voice in Washington DC and she is proving it!
Just a day ago Dr Christine Balsey Ford and the supreme Supreme Court nominee Bret Kavanaugh testified before a senate judiciary committee, and now the Hollywood actress Alyssa Milano is showing some support for victims and survivors of sexual assault.
The actress told the crowd during a recent rally on Capitol Hill that “My name is Alyssa Milano and I am a survivor of sexual assault and silent no more. The courage of survivors will always be stronger than misogyny.”
During the speech by the ex charmed star, she mentioned that she neither made a police report nor tell the officials about her sexual assault experience because she assumed “justice was never an option.”
However, after she listened to Dr Ford tell her story, the actress us hopeful that many survivors and victims of sexual assaults will draw strength and become bold enough to co.e out and also share their experiences.
“I want to thank Dr. Ford for being so strong for our country as a patriot,” the movie star shared. “We are not alone and this is the sad fact. One in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18 years old.”
During her talk with activists and sexual assault survivors, the actress urged voters to exercise their voting rights in November and also emphasised that she believed Dr Hill and Anita Hill.
“You are valuable. You are important and no one—not a president, not a Supreme Court nominee—can take that away from you,” Alyssa said. “November is coming. I believe that we will win.”
The movie star was in court as a guest of the California senator Dianne Feinstein for Thursday’s hearing. Alyssa pointed out during an interview with the Hollywood reporter that she didn’t attend the hearing on Thursday with a political agenda. The #MeToo activist pointed that she is glad she was in attendance as she only wanted to “support a survivor of sexual assault.”
“I wouldn’t be able to speak intelligently about the experience or about what happened had I not been in the room. I would have been asked questions regardless,” The movie star told the magazine”Today, I would have been doing interviews about this, if I had stayed home or if I had gone in the room. But I feel that being in the room enables me to answer those questions better.”
