Anne Pasternak, the director of the Brooklyn Museum, has contributed to the #MeToo debate in light of the allegations of sexual misconduct made against the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford, a professor at Palo Alto University in California. Pasternak posted earlier this week on Instagram: “I have been sexually assaulted numerous times from my teenage years to adulthood. Watching this week’s travesty against decency has been painful [referring to Kavanaugh’s recent confirmation proceedings in the US Senate].” Pasternak tells The Art Newspaper that “it is time culture leaders in the US take a stand” and that she "speaks to the need for change".
