In the days since Dr. Christine Blasey Ford came forward with her sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, more and more women have felt empowered to tell their story of sexual abuse.

Over the weekend Palo Alto Mayor Liz Kniss revealed she had been sexually assaulted twice as a young woman, and RAINN, the national sexual assault hotline, has reported a large increase in calls.

To discuss why that's the case, KCBS Radio's Stan Bunger and Susan Leigh Taylor spoke with Dr. Sarah Cook, a Psychology professor at Georgia State University who studies gender-based violence.
