The casual and systematic dismissal of the traumatic experiences of girls and young women (Boss Betty)

The casual and systematic dismissal of the traumatic experiences of girls and young women – Boss Betty
Two of the bigger stories that caught our eye this week dealt with how casually and systematically the traumatic experiences of girls and young women are disregarded.


The endless examples of institutions, and the people that populate them, failing to protect young women and girls are heartbreaking, and their ill effects can last a lifetime. “Survivors can spend years losing out on work and family time, jeopardizing their mental health and career, trying to get justice, and too often are left with nothing,” women’s rights attorney Dr. Ann Olivarius told Boss Betty via email. “The inexcusable mishandling of the Larry Nassar case shows just how deeply young women are distrusted and ignored, to protect a powerful man and a money-making institution.”

I will always be grateful for your unwavering support of me. Equally, I will always be grateful for showing me how to find my voice and strength.

Compared with other law firms I’ve worked with, no one matches the combination that McO has of experience, brilliance, ferocious fighting and deep empathy for their clients.

Dr Holly Atkinson, Atkinson et al v. Mount Sinai Health System, Inc. et al

Because my case could not bear public scrutiny, a very powerful institution used massive financial resources to try to crush me for asking for my disability rights. This was a huge mistake, as they didn’t know that I would obtain McO representation. I couldn’t ask for better representation.
