“This is me at 14. The age I was raped. It’s taken me 25 years to say those words,” Philipps wrote on Instagram. “I wrote about it in my book. I finally told my parents and sister about it 4 months ago. Today is the day we are silent no more.”
Philipps said she had stayed silent about being raped for 25 years. The actress wrote that she couldn’t imagine what Blasey was feeling during her public testimony.
Philipps did not go into detail about her assault, but said that she wrote about it in her upcoming book, This Will Only Hurt A Little, slated to be published in October.
