The Guardian Weekly - - The big story -

“Truth has been the great­est ca­su­alty. There has not been fair process for Dr Ford, nor for Judge Ka­vanaugh, nor for the Amer­i­can pub­lic. It was po­lit­i­cal theatre. It’s ab­surd that there was a hear­ing prior to there be­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Dr Ford’s ac­cu­sa­tions. And when an in­ves­ti­ga­tion was per­mit­ted, it was lim­ited in time and scope. They did not ap­pear to want the truth, it was an ex­er­cise of brute power. It is a dark day for Amer­i­can jus­tice.

We will re­mem­ber in Novem­ber [midterm elec­tions]. I have never seen so much out­rage boil­ing over from so many women, es­pe­cially vic­tims of sex­ual as­sault. This is the age of the em­pow­er­ment of women. We are tired of be­ing ig­nored and hav­ing our voices treated as though they don’t mat­ter.”
