Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed as supreme court justice despite being accused of sexually attacking at least three women. Despite being a political operative. Despite his rash and biased behavior during the hearing. Despite all the loud objections. But it’s these objections, the breaking of silence, that matters most. All year, women and men have stood up and said, “This happened to me” and “I believe her.” We shattered silence in elevators and on the senate floor. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford didn’t stay quiet. Neither did Deborah Ramirez. None of us stayed in our places like we were supposed to, so don’t think we’re about to start. Get ready. We are rising.
