Dylan Farrow Makes First TV Appearance in the Wake of #MeToo

Discussing her experience with her father, Woody Allen.
Reading time 2 minutes

In 2014 for the New York Times, Dylan Farrow, daughter of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen, wrote out, in detail, her experience of alleged childhood sexual assault at the hands of her father. Today, she made her first television appearance about the allegations. Farrow's first public airing of her story came 20 years ago, but she has led an understandably private life. In the wake of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, Allen's alleged abuse has been brought back into the spotlight, and she has made a brave choice to raise her voice for those who may have had trouble with Allen or any other sexual predator since.

The interview with Gayle King, which took place on CBS's This Morning, saw the now 32-year-old Farrow detail a harrowing experience in which Woody Allen took advantage of her as a child, one which won't be repeated here—although you can view the video for yourself below—out of respect for victims of childhood sexual assault due to its incredibly graphic nature.

What can be said, however, is that the state prosecutor to whom Mia Farrow took young Dylan years ago, Frank Maco, stated to CBS that he still believes Dylan Farrow's story. When a clip was played for Dylan Farrow of Allen's response to her allegations, she cried and said "He's lying and he's been lying for so long. And it is difficult for me to see him and to hear his voice."

"I want to show my face and tell my story," she said, "I want to speak out, literally."
