Last year Ashley Judd contemplated running for public office, but during a speech at George Washington University, instead of talking about politics, Judd spoke out about being a three-time rape survivor. In her memoir, the Kiss the Girls actress wrote about a painful time in her childhood when she was lured to an empty building by an old man who promised her a quarter for the pinball machine and instead raped her and during her speech Judd urged other survivors of rape and assault to not be silent. “We all have the courage to talk about it, because we’re as sick as our secrets and the shame keeps us in isolation.”
