ASHLEY JUDD & ANTHONY EDWARDS SHARE PERSONAL MESSAGES OF ENCOURAGEMENT
Ashley Judd was sexually abused by a man for the first time in the second grade and shared, “I had the onset of childhood depression at that time, with the attendant symptoms and grief."
"We need the general public to see the signs and act for children who are often too traumatized and manipulated to self-report sexual abuse—especially when that abuse is often in or close to the family,”
Anthony Edwards shares that he was sexually abused when he was 14 by someone he trusted and viewed as a father figure.
“The shame of feeling responsible for something that was done to you can feel like a good reason to keep quiet and stay silent. Find the words. It’s hard, it can be uncomfortable, but it’s okay to talk about it.”
Edwards is also Board Chair of 1in6, a non-profit organization that helps men who have had unwanted or abusive sexual experiences to live healthier, happier lives.
