Sexually Assaulted At Age Of 15
The CNN reporter, aged 50, is very vocal about her opinions and beliefs and never one to shy away from voicing her concern against what is wrong. In the wake of Brett Kavanaugh’s case of sexual assault, in support of the victim, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Powers shared her own story in the news column.
Describing what a sexual assault victim has to go through, she detailed of her own abuse story she suffered when she was 15 years of age. Powers' in her column wrote:
I passed out at a party after being fed all sorts of alcoholic concoctions by older boys and woke up with my shirt off and a popular senior basketball player on top of me. Dizzy and confused, I could barely remember anything about the night before. I asked what had happened and the boy told me we had just snuggled, but he couldn’t explain why my shirt was off.
The gravity of the situation only came to her mind after she was in the school a few days later where she found out through her friend that she was being ridiculed,
“A few days later, a male classmate I was close to exited the boys' locker room visibly shaken. He told me this boy had bragged in the locker room that he had molested me when I was passed out.
After the incident, she was the butt of jokes among students and suffered emotionally. And, through her story, she vocally opted for Kavanaugh to be removed from his post of Supreme Court Judge as it set a wrong example for teenage boys and girls.
