NWLC Reacts to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s Decision to Not Testify Before the Senate Judiciary Committee

The following is a statement by Fatima Goss Graves, President and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC):

“We fully support Dr. Blasey Ford’s decision to not testify on Monday. Why would anyone choose to go before the Senate Judiciary Committee and submit to partisan and hostile questions prior to an independent investigation? Dr. Blasey Ford has courageously shared her story, but she rightly objects to the rushed and arbitrary deadlines that have defined this hearing and a process that dismisses the gravity of sexual assault. We have all watched the devastating video from Anita Hill’s testimony in 1991. The Senate must do the right thing this time.”
