Women’s rights lawyer
“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.”
