Woody Allen and a spotlight on shadows

I don’t usually reblog anything, but for this post I’ll make an exception. Definitely a subject that needs support.

Working on Creative Chaos

Before I begin, I want to say that if you or someone you know has been or is being sexually assaulted or abused, please call the confidential crisis line at 1800656HOPE. this is a national crisis number. The website for the program, RAINN can be found by clicking here.

* I will primarily be using the word survivor, as opposed to victim in reference to sexual trauma. There is a stigma with the word victim, and to me, the word Survivor has connotations of strength and empowerment that are much needed in regards to the situations I am discussing and fit, to my mind, more appropriately. It happens at any age. To any gender.*

In a recent article in the New York Times, Woody Allen’s adopted daughter said a great deal about her experiences with Woody Allen. Her letter appears to be sincere and heartfelt…as well as heart wrenching.

  1. A good service re-blogging this. The terrible part is that often the situation is a he said-she said. And we are already hearing doubts about the Woody Allen situation on this side of the pond. After all, he is a BIG Hollywood producer and star, he couldn’t have possibly done that, he’s a great man, blah, blah. It’s about power, and he has all the power. I feel sorry for his victim.

    An important reblog, Pete. I feel so terrible for Dylan. She came forward which is probably the hardest thing to do and people doubted her.
