Almost a year ago a huge number of women accused Morgan Marquis-Boire of sexual assault. Their courage in coming forward is incredible, especially considering the horrible record that society has in addressing these wrongs, and I would like to state my opinion on the matter for public record.
I want it to be stated that I personally believe all of these women on a number of grounds: the vividness of their descriptions, the widespread geographical locations of the victims, the toxic culture I observed in the workplace, and some of the attitudes that I observed my ex-colleagues have toward women.
I think the lack of prosecution on Marquis-Boire despite the overwhelming amount of testimony reflects poorly on society’s view of women’s right to be free of violence. I hope one day justice will be served and Morgan Marquis-Boire will be sentenced to a lengthy prision term.
