Dear Dylan Farrow


Dear Dylan Farrow,

I think you are brave and beautiful!

I can absolutely relate to adults knowing your childhood truth and telling you to just get over it.  It breaks you.  It was so wrong that so many adults treated you that way, instead of helping you!

It must be so painful to have your abuser fawned over by the public, media and Hollywood elite when so many know {but ignore} the truth.  Abuse is not an art form!

But it seems like you were able to find love and support in a few loved ones over the years to help you rise and heal, as much as possible.  I have no doubt you worked hard to get to the place you are at right now.  I'm so impressed with your candid letter.  You were graceful and honest.

Thank you for sharing your story.  While you might never know it, I have no doubt it will help others in a variety of ways.


Below is what I feel is the most powerful quote from Dylan Farrow's letter as published in the NY Times.  Dylan is the daughter of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen.

"Woody Allen is a living testament to the way our society fails the survivors of sexual assault and abuse."
