Violence Against Women is a Horrific Topic. Patrick Stewart Explains its Impact on His Life.
As a rule I try to stay away from certain charged topics on All That Nerdy Stuff for a simple reason: I can rant on some of these topics just a little too well, and it can be painful and exhausting. The topic of violence against women is one of those topics which is near and dear to my heart for many reasons I won’t go into here. Suffice it to say, Mr. Stewart’s explanation of his connection to the topic mirrors my own in some very striking ways, and so his passionate response to a fan’s question really grabbed my attention. I hope it’ll grab yours, too; it’s a topic worth taking seriously. If you’d like to read more about it from the fan herself, Heather, check out her Tumblr.
