So much is different in our lives after the Kavanaugh confirmation. As a woman, and a healthcare provider for women, it becomes increasingly important to continue my work as an advocate and support for traumatized females.


One of the most difficult and infuriating things to me about the Kavanaugh proceedings was the idea that someone who has experienced trauma, and survived a sexual assault, cannot be believed simply because she may not be able to remember certain details of an event. This makes ZERO sense, and is in fact, medically incorrect and unscientific.
