Women gathered in Philadelphia City Hall in the Mayor’s Reception Room to read the letter written by a young woman raped on the campus of Stanford University. Many eyes teared as her story was retold. It was read mostly by women, aided by several men. DC47 VP Vanessa Fields was one of the readers and Councilwoman Helen Gym was one of the sponsors of the event, showing solidarity with their sister. The 23-year-old woman, sexually assaulted by a former Stanford University swimmer, read the powerful victim impact letter in court about how the rape affected her life.
