Dylan Farrow Goes Public

Dylan Farrow, the daughter of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen, has penned an open letter on Nicholas Kristof's New York Times blog, marking the first time that Dylan herself has written publicly about the allegations that Allen sexually abused her as a child. She describes in vivid detail the alleged incident when Allen led her upstairs to an attic and molested her, and describes the traumas that afflicted her for years afterward, as Allen was celebrated by the world for his work. "What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett?" she writes. "Louis CK? Alec Baldwin? What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson? You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?"
