“He’s given us all a purpose; a sisterhood purpose. We’re going to make a change in the world. We’ve already started,” Lise-Lotte Lublin tells viewers in Cosby: The Women Speak, which premiered last night. She is one of over a dozen women featured in the A&E special, all of whom have accused comedian Bill Cosby of sexual assault, drugging or rape in decades past. (More than 50 women total claim Cosby violated them in some way.) The women featured say they refuse to remain silent, despite statutes of limitations that disallow criminal charges or lawsuits against Cosby, and hope their stories will encourage laws to change and invite other victims of assault to find peace. “I have gone from victim to victim’s advocate,” Barbara Bowman said. Lawyers for Cosby deny all claims.
