FBI investigation fails Women, our democracy

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford

In my adult life, I’ve not seen women as transfixed and consumed by anything as we are by the fight to stop the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

The public hearings of Christine Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh have set off an explosive chain reaction of women all over the country reliving their own trauma, sharing stories with new audiences, and vowing to turn this moment into a watershed for change.

President Donald Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley had an opportunity to demonstrate true leadership. They had a chance to not only gain the trust of a nation, but also send a message to women about how we can expect to be treated against the backdrop of a promise of equality and justice. They rejected that opportunity.
