New Jersey's first lady talks about sexual assault as a UVA student

South Orange-Maplewood Represents at Women's March in Morristown

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — People who took part in the women's marches staged in New Jersey are being asked to donate their signs, posters and memorabilia to Rutgers University.

Gov. Phil Murphy and wife Tammy both addressed the enthusiastic crowd; the first lady talked about being sexually assaulted while in college. Tammy Murphy says the assault happened while she was a sophomore at the University of Virginia. "Now you all know", Murphy said.

"Moving between two groups of friends I had a choice of taking a longer path that was well-lit or a shorter brick walkway that was slightly in the shadows".

She said the man tried to take her clothes off and put a crab apple in her mouth to silence her but she bit his hand and fled half-dressed to a nearby fraternity house, where students called police. However, she said he was later convicted for another crime.

"Until today, only a few have heard my story", Murphy told the crowd at the rally.

Iran urges end to Turkey Syria operation
The offensive has already caused tens of thousands to flee and has threatened to undermine Erdogan's clout in the region. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has promised to expand the operation to other Kurdish regions.

Murphy, who graduated from the Charlottesville school in 1987, said her attacker never faced justice for assaulting her. I tell this today not for me, but really for all of you.

On Saturday, U.Va. referred questions about the incident to New Jersey's Office of the Governor, which did not respond to requests for comment.

The Morritown rally was among dozens across America, where-as they did in 2017-women and their allies showed up by the thousands a year after President Trump's inauguration and in support of the growing #metoo movement.

Chicago's march saw about 300,000 attendees while the third largest rally was in Trump's hometown of NY, where city officials believe about 200,000 marched. Afterward, a wave of women made a decision to run for elected office, and the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct became a cultural phenomenon.
