“It took me years after my assault to voice the experience to my closest friends,” Milano wrote in a first-person piece for Vox, expanding on her story, “It took me three decades to tell my parents that the assault had even happened. I never filed a police report. I never told officials. I never tried to find justice for my pain because justice was never an option.”
“For me, speaking up meant reliving one of the worst moments of my life. It meant recognizing my attacker’s existence when I wanted nothing more than to forget that he was allowed to walk on this Earth at all,” she wrote.
