Grey’s Anatomy’s Groundbreaking Episode Shows Detailed Look At Rape Kit Exam

Published

on

Grey’s anatomy latest episode “Silent All These Years” that was aired Thursday night, had received tons of praise from fans after showing an extensive detailed look at the procedure that is done to rape victims during the rape kit exam.

The episode focused on a rape victim survivor called Abby, who comes to the hospital with a scar on her face. She is taken care of by Jo who later on, discovers signs of abuse all over the patient’s body. Giving the history of Jo’s abusive relationship with her husband, she jumps to the conclusion that the woman is being physically abused by her husband.

However, the patient shortly reveals that she was attacked and raped after a night out in which drinking occurred, and for that reason, she doesn’t want to report it. Fearing the usual blaming and judgments that are usually set against rape victims.

“We all know if I do that kit, it ends up in the back of some police station, ignored for years, while I sit there wondering when the bomb will go off, waiting to see if a jury of my peers will believe a woman who wore a skirt a few inches too short, who had a few cocktails too many at a bar last night after having a fight about laundry with her husband,” Abby emotionally declared when the doctors asked her to do the kit exam.

“And you know the tequila I drank will make it my fault, and whoever did this to me, whatever he drank, that’ll be his excuse,” she added.

The revelation, her words, the pain in her eyes, all portrayed what women actually go through everyday.

fortunately, Jo was able to talk her into taking the exam, encouraging her to speak up, convincing her that what happened is and never will be her fault.

After the kit is administered, all the female doctors of Grey Sloan Memorial line the hallway of the hospital, as Abby is wheeled into surgery, silently offering their solidarity and support in what has been one of the most powerful episodes of Grey’s Anatomy. 

“Making scenes like this is what Shondaland is all about,” Grey’s creator Shonda Rhimes tweeted on Friday. “So proud.”

The powerful scene of the detailed rape kit exam almost didn’t make it to the episode, Shonda Rhimes reveals that she has fought with ABC channel to keep the scene; as it is a moment that should be witnessed by all as it is n accurate treatment of sexual assault survivors.

The creators worked with RAINN, the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, in order to make the content and language of the episode as accurate and sensitive as possible; which was indeed successful and touched millions of viewers.

Ramy Youssef Wins Golden Globe and Amazes the Audience With his Humble Speech

Published

Egyptian-American Ramy Youssef won the first Golden Globe of the night, for Best Actor in a Comedy Series for his show Ramy, and then took the stage and said: ‘I would like to thank my God. Allahu akbar. Thank you, God’

Being just a newbie to Hollywood and the entertainment industry in general, his win might come as a surprise but it is indeed a remarkable achievement that he made it in such a relatively short time.

 

The Egyptian-American comedian later joked about his own win in the press room saying: “I was just happy they pronounced it [his name] right.”

“I was like, is Jennifer Aniston going to be able to pronounce this name? And she did it! Maybe it was Reese [Witherspoon], it was all a blur.” He added.

Even though Ramy Youssef isn’t the first Muslim to win a Golden Globe, it is indeed news worth celebrating not only for the beautiful way he reacted to his win, but also because at the moment, he’s working on Season two of Ramy for Hulu with the help of another Muslim who also previously won a Golden Globe, Mahershala Ali.

Will The Arabic Version of ‘Jane the Virgin’ Meet Our expectations?

Published

The first episode of ‘Al Anessa Farah‘ aired last night and as someone who is a big fan of the original series, I have had my doubts but watching the first episode actually met some of my expectations but more questions remain unanswered.

The series follows the life of Farah whose life gets turned upside down after she gets accidentally inseminated, which brings us to concern number one which is how this is relevant to our culture? Also, Farah is an accident child who never met her father, bringing us to concern number two.

The first episode was actually fun and even more hilarious than the original series, but seeing how the original reflects a totally different culture than ours is what had us confused and eager to see how they will adopt it to our norms and culture.

The series features the superstars Asma Abulyazeed, Rania Youssef, Mariam El Khosht, Ahmed Magdy, Mohamed El Kilany, and Heba Abdelaziz. 

The cast is definitely one of the highlights of the series, they all match the original characters but with the usual touch of Egyptian humor.

The series started airing on MBC 4 and you can also binge watch it on Shahid.
