On Monday night, the 30-year-old actress appeared at Glamour‘s Women of the Year Awards in Los Angeles to help Emily Doe, the sexual assault victim of Brock Turner, accept her award by reading part of the woman’s powerful essay.
As part of the presentation, Johnny’s ex read part of the victim’s court statement and essay that was published in the magazine’s December issue. The Zombieland star was also joined on stage by Lena Dunham, Gabourey Sidibe, and Freida Pinto who all read excerpts as well.
After getting through the powerful essay, Amber thanked Emily by saying:
“Emily, wherever you are, thank you for your words. Thank you for your courage. We carry it with us every day.”
Shortly thereafter, Stanford Law School professor Michelle Dauber joined the women onstage to accept the award on Doe’s behalf.
As you might recall, the magazine had previously had the cast of Girls perform the essay which detailed what happened after the woman’s letter about Brock went viral.
We can’t begin to imagine what Emily’s been through, but we’re so proud that she’s battling back. We’re definitely wishing Doe the best of luck as she continues to spread awareness about sexual assault!
