If nothing else, this cover is very powerful. It says to rape victims, do not be afraid to speak out against those that hurt and assaulted you. It says that you are not being blamed for what happened. It’s a sign of support – and I applaud these women for sharing their stories. Thirty-five of Bill Cosby’s forty-six alleged rape victims appear on the cover of New York Magazine’s latest issue.
The cover comes just a few weeks after documents obtained by the Associated Press reveal that Cosby admitted in 2005 to acquiring quaaludes to give to women he intended to have sex with. The cover also comes shortly after a report surfaced online claiming that Cosby wants his “hush money” back from one of his accusers Andrea Constand.
New York Magazine has also begun sharing audio accounts from some of Cosby’s accusers on its Instagram page. For all thirty-five women and their stories, click here.
Actress Louisa Moritz’ account is also being shared on the New York Magazine Instagram page.
