“People who want the world to go back to what it was where women were bullied into silence should just forget it. There is a before and an after. There is no going back. We need to keep amplifying women's voices. We need to keep believing women, and we all need to let women feel and rage because that rage has been pent up for decades if not centuries. The struggle is to find a new vocabulary for how we move forward. No one has the answer right now. And that is scary. But this is our new reality. No more silence.”
