Ellen DeGeneres Says #MeToo

While interviewing Busy Phillips yesterday, Ellen DeGeneres opened up about surviving sexual assault (she first came forward about being molested by her stepfather in 2005). The two discussed the #MeToo movement, including how Phillips decided to come forward about the rape she survived when she was 14. DeGeneres then shared her story.

They also both recounted how moved they were by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, where Ford accused Kavanaugh of attempting to rape her when they were in high school.

“I was 15 and I had something happen to me,” DeGeneres said. “When I watched Dr. Ford — anyone who has had something happen to them, you just get so angry when someone doesn’t believe you or says, ‘Why did you wait so long?’”

She also said: “It’s because we’re girls and we’re taught not to say anything and go along with it.”

She closed the interview with this statement:

“People, first of all, need to teach your children to speak up and don’t ever keep something in. Don’t ever be ashamed and think that it’s your problem and your fault,” DeGeneres concluded. “Because it’s never your fault. You’re a child.”
