While we are inspired by the bravery of all sexual abuse survivors who are speaking out, we continue to be shocked by the full extent of the scale of the epidemic of sexual violence against women. As the #MeToo movement continues to empower survivors to break their silence, the latest celebrity to share their story of resilience in the face of sexual violence is Tiffany Haddish.
In an interview with GLAMOUR US, the comedian and actress has spoken out her own experience of sexual violence, revealing that she was raped by a police cadet when she was 17. Speaking out about the experience, she described the long-term effects of the attack and how it has shaped her life.
“That whole experience put me in such a messed-up place for a long time, and I ended up going to counselling,” she revealed.
