“I’m sure I’m not the only woman in the world who’s been in a situation where they had to choose between a job or a relationship,” she said.
“If you’re in that situation, what are you going to do?”
“What’s the next step for me?
Do I want to stay home?”
“Do I want my family to have to be in the situation where I’m struggling to survive?” she added.
“I think that if we can make sure that we’re making sure that men are not having to choose to be raped by a woman, then we’re going to have a much better chance at making sure there’s no future for this.”
She called the sexual assault epidemic “a real crisis” that has “gone on for too long” and that “no one has done anything about it.”
“We have to do something to change the culture that’s allowing this to happen,” she added, “and I think that what we’re doing right now is taking a very firm stance that we need to address this crisis.”
