How much is a woman’s life worth? What kind of value does a woman’s life hold? When I first read the testimonies of Bill Cosby’s victims, I just knew they were telling the truth. And when the world went against them, I started to lose hope in humanity for doing so. My first question was - why would anyone want to blame the victim while praising the perpetrator?
That was, until today.
Today is a day I will remember for the rest of my life. Not only has this case changed many laws, including the statute of limitations on sex crimes it’s open the eyes of those who are blinded by the façade of a man we all grew to love and laugh at. Yes, I was a fan of Bill Cosby and loved him in the Ghost Dad, a movie I will never ever watch again.
Cosby was a man who hid his dark side from most of the world. From all of us. I just knew his victims were telling the truth and I was right. Which leads me to the question, how much is a woman’s life worth? What kind of value does a woman’s life hold?
If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything. The victims stand for something and will never be silenced. Their lives are worth something and so is their voice. Justice has been officially served.
