One day sometime in late Autumn 1978 I took a few pics mostly from around the Central Library. It was one of those wet days and for some reason everybody I met that day was in a good mood. It summed up something about Manchester - quite what I am not sure….but if nothing else its a memory of a very particular Manchester late afternoon.

Decided to go to Oxford today with no more specific purpose than to wander around. The weather is gorgeous, and after a lovely train journey and two hours of wandering I’m doing homework and having a pint at the pub where C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien used to hang out. I’ve also got a ticket to go see some random production of King Lear in a bookstore basement tonight, because why not? I’m blissed out on life today. That’s all.
Well, every survivor except for the ones that were abused by your husband and you refuse to acknowledge, right?
Eileen Wellstone-19 year old woman who says that Bill abused her at a pub near Oxford University. Clinton admitted to having sex with her, but claimed it was consensual. Her family refused to press charges.
1972-A 22 year old woman told campus police at Yale University that she was sexually assaulted by Bill. She did not press charges, but a retired police officer from the campus confirmed the incident. She would like to remain anonymous.
1974-A female student at the University of Arkansas claimed that Bill tried to prevent her from leaving his office during a conference and forced his hand inside of her shirt. She told the faculty advisor, who then contacted clinton. He claimed that she came onto him. She was recently reached at her home in Texas and confirmed the incident, but did not want to go further with the case. Many other students at the university also reported sexual assault from him
Juanita Broaddrick-A volunteer in one of Clinton’s campaigns claimed that he raped her in 1978. She suffered from bruises and a torn lip because Clinton bit her during the rape.
1978-80-During his first term as governor of arkansas, there were several complaints of women being sexually abused by him. The state troopers were aware of this.
Carolyn Moffett-a secretary in Little Rock in 1979 says that she met Clinton at a fundraising event and later was invited over to his hotel room. She says, “I was escorted there by a state trooper. When I went in, he was sitting on a couch, wearing only an undershirt. He pointed at his penis and told me to suck it. I told him I didn’t even do that for my boyfriend and he got mad, grabbed my head and shoved it into his lap. I pulled away from him and ran out of the room.”
Elizabeth Ward-Miss. Arkansas who won Miss. America in 1982, told friends that she was forced to have sex with him after her state won. Clinton claims that it was consensual, but her very close friends told interviewers that she said that it was rape.
Paula Corbin-An Arkansas state worker filed a lawsuit against Clinton when he exposed himself in his hotel room in Little Rock and forced her to have oral sex with him.
Sandra Allen James-A volunteer during Bill’s presidential campaign in 1991, claimed that he pinned her up against the wall and forced his hand up her dress. She screamed loud enough for an Arkansas state trooper stationed outside of the room to ask if everything was alright, and then Clinton released her and she fleed. She reported this to her boss and told her to keep her mouth shut if she wanted to keep working. She later learned that several other women were abused by him during his campaign.
Christy Zercher-A flight attendant one of Clinton’s campaign flights claims that she was grabbed by the breasts by clinton as he made several comments about oral sex. A video shot on board shows Clinton putting his hands up another girl’s pants.
Kathleen Wiley-A White House volunteer claimed that Clinton grabbed her, fondled her breasts and pressed her hand to his genitals during a White House meeting in 1993. She told her story in an episode of the show 60 minutes and became a target of hatred afterwards.
Let this be a reminder to you that Hillary Clinton does not care about survivors of sexual assault. She would’ve stood by the victims and defended them if she really cared about them by now. The only thing that she cares about is her image, and she knows that she will lose supporters if she owns up to this now.
