Christine Blasey Ford presents Sports Illustrated’s Inspiration of the Year Award to Rachael Denhollander

She’s back! Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, presented Sports Illustrated’s Inspiration of the Year award to Rachael Denhollander.


Denhollander was the first woman to speak out against gymnastics doctor Larry Nasser, who was sentenced to to 40 to 175 years in prison earlier this year after being charged with multiple sex crimes against more than 150 young women.

In the video, Blasey-Ford tells Denhollander, “Rachel Denhollander, I am in awe of you, and I will always be inspired by you,” Ford said. “In stepping forward, you took a huge risk and you galvanized future generations to come forward, even when the odds are seemingly stacked against them.”

This is Blasey-Ford’s first post hearing appearance and last we heard, she and her family were still receiving threats after the testimony.
