  • Christine Blasey Ford testimony

A group of faculty, students and alums at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill are nominating Christine Blasey Ford for a Distinguished Alumna Award after she testified before a Senate panel about her sexual assault allegations against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The professor, Jennifer Ho, teaches in the university's Department of English and Comparative Literature.

Ford earned an undergraduate degree in Experimental Psychology in 1988 at UNC.

"We witnessed you show up for duty not as a superhero, but as a fully human woman". "Watching the White House ceremony last night and listening to the President again cast doubt on the veracity of Dr. Ford's claims, while not hearing a word of contrition from the newest justice, was hard for many Americans who have experienced sexual misconduct firsthand".

"I have been called the most vile and hateful names imaginable", Ford said in her opening statement to the Senate on September 26. She said she escape and never mentioned the alleged assault to anyone until her therapist in 2012.

"History shows us that when high-profile allegations such as these are in the news it often causes others to reach out too", said RAINN President Scott Berkowitz, adding that Ford's allegations "clearly resonated with survivors, and has led thousands to reach out for help for the first time".

Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center in hard-hit Panama City, 32 km northwest of Mexico Beach, was treating some of the injured. Nearly 1.2 million homes and businesses were without power from Florida to Virginia on Thursday because of the storm.


Ho said she wants to send the message that "UNC Chapel Hill believes survivors of sexual assault".

Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation hearing put a national spotlight on issues of sexual assault.

Kavanaugh was sworn in Saturday evening after the Senate narrowly confirmed him, 50-48, with only one Democrat voting yes. "When you stood there in front of us, Dr. Ford, we found a heroism we could not only believe in, but become".

Instead, you'll find a website that links to resources for sexual assault survivors.

Dr. Blasey Ford giving her testimony, speaking truth to power, was an inspiration for so many of us.
