On this day, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was called and voluntary appeared to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee to detail her experience of an incident of sexual assault allegedly committed against her by then Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. According to Dr. Ford, the assault allegedly occurred at a casual gathering at a home in the summer of 1982, more than 36 years ago. She agreed to testify, despite the many threats she received to her person, her family, and her humanity. Her testimony would be a momentous day for the #MeToo Movement and a tremendous test for how she would be treated and perceived. Would she be believed?
