Other celebrities, including other women who’ve spoken publicly about having been sexually assaulted, such as Ashley Judd, Mira Sorvino, and Padma Lakshmi, and Mariska Hargitay, who regularly advocates for victims of sexual assault, weighed in on the subject, too.
I do NOT know how I got home after I was raped at 15. No memory of it. Neither does she. #ChristinaBlaseyFord

I stand with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford today & always. Thank you for your incredible courage. You are a hero.

I find Dr. Blasey Ford extremely credible and sympathetic. I find her responses echo many of the feelings and reactions I have had over the years connected to my own sexual violence trauma and the aftermath of speaking out. I applaud her courage. https://t.co/K7HmLJL22l

Dr. Ford, I am in awe of your bravery.

Out of the blue, a hero steps up and I’m in awe. I know the pain of these kinds of memories, Dr. Ford. Memories that are indelibly imprinted on your brain no matter how many years go by. I, like millions of women across America, are behind you and thank you profoundly.

I’m no psychology professor but it does seem weird to me that someone could have a selective fear of flying.
Can’t do it to testify but for vacation, well it’s not a problem at all.

I wish Judge Judy was asking the questions. #KavanaughHearings

As a mother of boys myself—one turning 21 today, I’m thinking of Professor Ford’s sons watching their mom with their dad. This is a moment for boys and men as well.

Boy Dr. Ford sure does fly a lot for someone who had to delay the hearings because she was afraid to fly. #KavanaughHearings

Sickened that our current political environment is so toxic and partisan, that #DrChristineBlaseyFord received death threats for doing, what she believes, is her civic duty.

Just walked by two construction workers:
“Dr. Ford is doing really well.”
“Good! She’s great.”
“Yeah. And Chuck Grassley is just…”
“Yup. Turn that livestream up.”
