Sharon and Madeline respond to the recent rape story in the news described by E. Jean Carroll, about her encounter with President Trump in a department store dressing room, over 20 years ago. This leads them to consider the burden we place on victims to be the right kind of victim or to inhabit a victim persona. They respond to some of the attacks on Ms. Carroll and reinforce the idea of the #metoo movement, that these experiences are commonplace, but also that responses to these kinds of experiences vary among victims.
