1. Yes

It gives them a sense that they can be powerful in the world -
they feel somewhat safer. It gives them courage.

3. And I guess the reverse would be true if Kavanaugh made it onto the Supreme Court.

 



This moment is important for so many reasons.

5. I think for most, yes

there was a recent article in the Atlantic Monthly written by a woman who wrote to her abuser and he telephoned her back to apologize...

6. I would think someone seeing this now

Would be glad someone is held accountable for their sexual abuse of women even though they have a powerful position in our government, and it prevents their getting more power to use against women in their position. trump has told every women to go F themselves , because he could care less about them having rights. He and the kgop are against women having any rights. Just like minorities too.
