No show has ever portrayed the feeling of the victim of sexual assault, rather other shows used to depict the psychology of the abuser or the legal acts of crime for the matter.
There were funny and enjoyable moments, some dramatic ones, and importantly relatable and strong female characters that showcased their strength in the show in a different way. The best show ever watched to empower and encourage anyone who got assaulted ever.
