Another Mother's Open Response to Dylan Farrow's NY Times Op Ed on Surviving Woody Allen's serial abuse:
I believe you, Dylan. Thank you for your courage. I am glad that your mother overcame the trance of incest that so often prevails in predatory households and that she has become your supporter - I would expect no less of her. I am glad that you are calling out those who should have been your protectors but chose to remain silent - there is power and healing in that action. Please know that there is abundant love and support out there for all survivors-we are working hard at www.healingincest.org.
All survivors take heart when they witness your reclamation of your human rights. I intend to boycott all of the perpetrator's works from this day forward. I hope others will join me.
with love and hope,
