I believe Christine Ford. I understand completely why she would have waited so long to come forward.

I was eighteen when I was sexually assaulted. [Warning: rape/suicide triggers.] Although I told a few others, I did not tell anyone in my family until after my Mom died. I was fifty-five.

When I told my eldest sister, after expressing sorrow that this had happened to me, said that it was a good thing I hadn’t told anyone, especially my father.

This is why I now tell my story. I want to help bring things like this to light.  Maybe if enough women do, it will be harder for men to claim they’re lying.
