Dr. Christine Blasey Ford: Face of 2018's #MeToo Movement
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford caused a furore in the country's political circle when she publicly accused President Donald Trump's Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers. The psychology professor became the face of the #MeToo movement as she stood in front of a group of senators in a public testimony and withstood excruciating questioning about her sexual assault experience. Dr. Ford's public testimony reportedly resulted in a 147 percent increase in calls to the National Sexual Assault Hotline.
