Ashley Judd Recalls Incest and Being Raped Twice in Powerful Essay About Violence Towards Women

21 19.03.2015 Инфо

Ashley Judd has penned a powerful essay about violence against women. After tweeting something negative about a specific March Madness basketball play, the actress says she was on the receiving end of a "tsunami of gender-based violence and misogyny." Judd went on to recount her own multiple experiences with rape and assault. "I am a survivor of sexual assault, rape and incest. I am greatly blessed that in 2006, other thriving survivors introduced me to recovery. I seized it. My own willingness, partnered with a simple kit of tools, has empowered me to take the essential odyssey from undefended and vulnerable victim to empowered survivor."
