Why don’t they come forward? Why don’t they put their name and faces to their accusations? Those are the types of questions you always hear when it comes to women who say they’ve been raped. Well, here you go then, will these 35 women, all posing for the cover of New York, who say Bill Cosby raped them finally convince you?
As the piece notes:
The group of women Cosby allegedly assaulted functions almost as a longitudinal study—both for how an individual woman, on her own, deals with such trauma over the decades and for how the culture at large has grappled with rape over the same time period. […] The first assumption was that women who accused famous men were after money or attention. As Cosby allegedly told some of his victims: No one would believe you. So why speak up?
