I took note of this story because I have become an avid fan of HBO's Westworld Series. I have even seen the thread here on RU under movies and TV that discuss how enjoyable the series has been to watch for some RU members.
Ms. Wood is being praised for speaking out and continuing to lift the stigma surrounding the victims of rape most notable is "they brought it on themselves" or "it's no big deal". She wrote a letter regarding her story that was partially published in Rolling Stone Magazine. She then posted a link to the full letter on her Twitter account. She indicated that coming forth with her story was partially due to the results of the presidential election and the potentially catastrophic fallout that could come from the President-Elect's comments and views regarding women and the Vice President-Elect's fanatical vow to reverse reproductive rights and options for women.https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/arts-and-entertainment/wp/2016/11/30/westworld-actress-evan-rachel-wood-says-she-was-raped-i-am-strong-but-i-am-still-not-ok/?utm_term=.16b30d9d510a
I applaud her. As a fan of the Westworld series, I wonder how she deals with the scenes in the cable series that depict and allude to the idea of the character she plays being repeatedly raped.
