Lara Logan: a brave voice for victims of Sexual Assault. {Warning: heartrending}

Lara Logan on 60 Minutes, tells her sexual assault in Tahrir Square. Click here for background.

This is graphic. Not for children.

I’m crying, having just read the transcript. Not sure I can watch the video. I’m pretty “emotionally repressed,” as I like to joke, and reading this was worse than watching a horror movie, physically, because of course it’s true, and she’s so open and strong and a mother and a human being.

She’s telling this story just once.

She’s speaking out, she tells us, to add her voice to those who confront sexual violence; to break what she calls the “code of silence.”
