When Brook was 16 years old, she was raped by an acquaintance who had been harassing her for several months.
Brook spent her mid-20s dealing with the long term effects of the assault and she had made huge strides in healing from the trauma. But then in September 2018, one woman’s accusations of sexual assault against a powerful man turned social media into a debate over the believability of people who come forward decades later. And this debate triggered Brook’s past trauma, and she decided now to deal with it in a way she has never done before.
