On this weeks episode of Private Practice, Charlotte, played by KaDee Strickland is sexually assaulted. In the video clip below from FOXNY, Stickland thanks the hosts for talking about the episode and sexual assault. We here at One Student would like to thank Shonda Rhimes for bringing this important issue into our living rooms and for working with RAINN throughout the process to depict the raw truth of a survivor of sexual assault. Speaking out through TV shows is just one way we can bring this topic to the forefront and encourage people to talk about an issue that has been silent for far too long.
I have been a fan of the show from the start and one of the things I like most about it, aside from an incredibly attractive and drama filled cast is that the writers tackle controversial issues and push the envelope on subjects like abortion, sexuality, mental health, teen pregnancy and now sexual assault, topics that people are often uncomfortable talking about. I don’t know about you, but I am certainly going to tune in this week and encourage others to do the same.
Please comment here after the episode airs this Thursday night. We would love to hear your thoughts.
Forever a fan of RAINN and Shonda Rhimes,
One Student Founder
