  • Christine Blasey Ford

UNC English professor Jennifer Ho says in a nomination letter that Blasey Ford should be honored with the award bestowed by the campus board of trustees because she set an example speaking out against sexual assault during last month's nationally televised congressional hearing.

Hu shared the drafted nomination to invite the university faculty, staff, students and alumni to sign off on the nomination and sign their names in support.

The U.S. Senate confirmed Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court Saturday with a 50-48 vote and he was sworn in that night in a private ceremony. "Watching the White House ceremony last night and listening to the President again cast doubt on the veracity of Dr. Ford's claims, while not hearing a word of contrition from the newest justice, was hard for many Americans who have experienced sexual misconduct firsthand".

Ho said it's known that people "who are survivors of sexual assault do not experience justice for their trauma" and "many of them choose not to report to the police and choose not to reveal their assault out of fear that they will not be believed". They added, "When you stood there in front of us, Dr. Ford, we found a heroism we could not only believe in, we could become".

He believes religious schools should be able to discriminate against students and staff based on sexuality, saying it's not controversial.

Republican leaders and Fox News pundits acknowledged a quiet, polite Ford as a compelling and credible witness while Kavanaugh and Sen. "How did we get to the place where you have millions of people who identify as survivors of sexual violence in this country and around the world?"

Finally, we don't know whether Feinstein's handling of Ford's accusations will undermine what had seemed to be her all-but-certain re-election.

Though Wake did not provide specific details about the uptick in sexual assault reports, she said Ford's testimony showed how hard it can be to report sexual misconduct. As she told the committee, she is no one's pawn. "She was upset by it, yes, as any woman would be who's the victim of sexual assault and was mocked and belittled by anyone, never mind the president of the United States", Banks said.

"I believe Dr. Ford". Up to five awards may be presented annually.
