evan rachel wood testifies before congress about her sexual assault experiences




she's there to encourage congress to pass the sexual assault survivors' bill of rights

was threatened, abused, raped, tied up and tortured by one person she was in a relationship with
she said she just went numb and believed she deserved the abuse and was too scared to leave
even after she left she was raped by someone else and was so indoctrinated by her previous abuse that she couldn't bring herself to fight back
suffered from ptsd for years without knowing what was wrong with her
struggled with addiction, depression, agoraphobia; attempted suicide twice and was hospitalized
still wakes up screaming in the middle of the night sometimes; other times takes a baseball bat to bed with her when she hears loud noises outside
wants to ensure her son doesn't buy into the pressure society puts on men to be violent
