Evan Rachel Wood: This Is Why I Haven't Named My Rapists

She posted a video on YouTube saying that she has not named her abusers, "not because I don't plan on saying these names eventually, but because to start that process is emotionally draining and financially draining, really an everything draining thing to do and to go through". It is a terrifying thing to have to go through, mainly because you are at risk of not being believed, your career being hurt, being drained of your finances - because it costs a lot of money to file a lawsuit and go to court with somebody.

The actress revealed previous year that she had been sexually assaulted on at least two occasions, once by an ex-boyfriend and once by a man she identified as a bar owner.

"She's a survivor; she's been abused for about 30 years. she's been knocked down so many times and she comes back even stronger", Wood told Forbes. "One. I'm one person against some very powerful people. Two".

"'Especially if all you have is your word against theirs and especially if these are very powerful people. Once again you're at the mercy of your abusers and you've kicked a hornet's nest and you have a target on your back". I'm still working through that'.

Advisors Asset Management Inc. increased its position in shares of Physicians Realty Trust by 33.4% in the third quarter. Sit Investment Associates Inc. increased its position in shares of Physicians Realty Trust by 7.2% in the third quarter.

The "Wrestler" actress admitted it is hard to leave her abusers unnamed, but her fear of them and facing people, who wouldn't believe her is too much. "I'm not ashamed to say that I'm not ready to come forth with the names, because I'm here to identify a problem".

She revealed then that she had 'left awards shows cause I've watched them walk up on stage and accept a statue'. 'If the victim is not ready you can not fight that battle for them'.

Evan went on to encourage victims to name their attackers, and for these people to be ostracised.

"It was so normalised and it was talked about in such a way that you are warned about Weinstein - because most actresses are, this is just the truth", she said.
