Several Hollywood actresses have come out in support of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford amid the confirmation battle of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Produced by the liberal group MoveOn, women from all walks of life came together and made a video in the format made famous during the 2016 election when several speakers read the same message. The one was a direct message for Dr. Ford.
“Dear Professor Ford, we know how difficult it is to stand up to powerful people. We want to thank you for publicly sharing your story of sexual violence. As members of the Senate determine whether Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should serve as a Supreme Court Justice, this context is critical. The behavior you described was wrong and runs directly counter to upholding the law and promoting justice. He should not be confirmed,” the women said to the camera. “We can also imagine how shocking and overwhelming it must have been to have your truths shared on a national stage without your permission. You should be the only decision maker about how your story is shared, if ever. We applaud your courage in coming forward for the public good and we will be with you as you face the inevitable backlash.”
“You are strong. And you are not alone,” they continued. “You are a survivor and millions of us have your back. You and your testimony are credible. We believe you. Signed, Your Sisters.”
Actresses who appear in the video include Julianne Moore, Eva Longoria, America Ferrera, Marisa Tomei, Gabrielle Union, and Amber Tamblyn.
