While attending the premier, Shields opened up about the event, saying that she felt it was necessary to include it in the documentary. She explained that she didn’t want her story to be forgotten or overlooked.

Shields said that coming forward with her story was difficult, but important. She wanted to put a spotlight on the issue of rape and encourage other survivors to come forward and tell their stories. She hopes that by doing so, others will not feel as alone or as scared as she did.

The actress shared her story of strength and courage, saying that she had to find the courage to tell her story and make sure that it doesn’t happen to other people.
