The Center for Judicial Excellence is proud to be an official Resource for the 7 Emmy-nominated HBO Series, Allen v. Farrow. This important presentation of the first-hand, brave account of Dylan Farrow’s childhood trauma serves to help other survivors and to educate the public about the societal scourge of child sexual abuse. Thanks to Jane Doe Films for hosting this panel series in partnership with Center for Judicial Excellence, RAINN, and The National Family Violence Law Center at GW.
“People were outraged, felt like they were finally hearing a story they’d never heard before, astonished by how much the narrative they had absorbed turned out to have been really untrue… Woody Allen’s legacy was to have written a blueprint for getting fathers off for abusing their children. That whole bait and switch of the second you’re accused–the best defense is a good offense, you immediately accuse your accuser, and thanks to rampant misogyny, everyone’s eager to jump on the bandwagon of any narrative that says ‘the woman did it.’ That actually has held a lot of weight ever since in family courts. That was sort of lightbulb moment for defense attorneys.”
