Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce addressed the issue of “gender stereotypes” on Friday while responding to the story of a woman who claims that Ghislaine Maxwell raped her 20 to 30 times, starting when the alleged victim was only 14 years old in 1991.
“Jane Doe”, who wishes to protect her identity, told Fox News that the abuse continued until the age of 16, and added that she was ready to speak and testify against Maxwell, a former girlfriend of Jeffrey Epstein and alleged madam.
“Having my own experience, I think that women in general may have something to do with the issue of domestic violence, with abusive people, etc. “Said Bruce on” Hannity “. “And I think it’s a dynamic where a lot of people, at the same time, can’t imagine some of the things that this young woman is describing. But I think we have to realize and for me, this is important on the issue of gender stereotypes, especially as we enter the election season.

And one very important thing to remember is that women are powerful and amazing and that we are also capable ” [of being] as well as men are as well as bad. ”
Maxwell was arrested on Thursday in New Hampshire on federal charges of facilitating and participating in acts of sexual abuse with minors. She faces up to 35 years in prison if convicted of all charges.
