The news has been pretty overwhelming lately. With Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh taking over every channel and publication, there’s been a lot of talk about sexual assault.
Critics of Dr. Ford have accused her of lying about her assault because she never reported it to the police. But as most sensible people know, there are so many reasons why victims of sexual assault choose not to go to the police. Shame, trauma, skepticism and the unlikelihood of their perpetrator getting any real punishment are just a few of the reasons why survivors don’t involve law enforcement — and that’s totally understandable! But after seeing Dr. Ford get attacked for it, people on Twitter started the hashtag #WhyIDidntReport to show support for the psychologist.
