Rachel Evan Wood has explained since she’s had to sojourn wordless about her passionate attack, which she spoke publicly about for the first time last year.
The Westworld actress, 30, posted a extensive clip online explaining since she hasn’t named the ‘very powerful, very rich, very entitled, very narcissistic white men’ who abused her, and put it in partial down to fear.
Rachel suggested last year she had been assaulted by two apart attackers, one an ex boyfriend and one she has called a ‘bar owner’, and explained it took her 7 years to come to terms with what happened.
Although she didn’t name the men, she did contend she had walked out of ceremonies when they’ve won awards.
In the video, she pronounced she had remained wordless since of the ‘power’ the men have, and pronounced she didn’t pronounce out since she wasn’t prepared to relive the mishap of what had happened to her.
She said: ‘I haven’t named my abusers for a series of reasons. One, I’m one person against some very absolute people.
‘Two: income and time and retraumatising yourself, go after the person who assaulted you takes utterly a toll.’
She went on to say: ‘It’s a terrifying thing to go through, generally since you are at the risk of not being believed, your career being hurt, you being emptied of your finances since it costs a lot of income to file a lawsuit and go to justice with someone, generally if all you have is your word against theirs.’
She added: ‘And generally if these are very absolute people.’
The singer pronounced speaking out would have been ‘kicking the hornet’s nest’, but suggested that she had identified her enemy to friends and family.
‘The fact that women are not means to name their abusers is not their fault,’ she said. ‘If the victim is not prepared you can't fight that battle for them.’
Rachel went on to inspire victims to name their attackers, and for these people to be ostracised.
‘I’m here to tell you I’m afraid, and we don’t consider that’s my fault,’ she said.
