Mariska Hargitay is opening up about how her role on Law & Order: SVU

Hargitay writes that playing Detective Olivia Benson for 18 years has opened her eyes to the injustices faced by survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse. One specific issue that Hargitay says hasn’t changed enough in her time on the show has to do with public opinion about sexual assault cases.

“Survivors still largely face the same cultural attitudes that contribute to silencing them and preventing them from coming forward as when I started on the show,” Hargitay writes. “And despite the prevalence of these crimes — to which statistics attest — these issues remain the most underfunded, under-researched, under-regarded social ills of our day.”
