Survivor Sarah Ransome Speaks Out Against Ghislaine Maxwell

Dec 17, 2021

Warning: This story mentions sexual abuse, which could be triggering to some viewers.

Last week, Sarah Ransome released her memoir “Silenced No More: Surviving My Journey to Hell and Back,” where she has come forward with allegations of abuse about Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein. We spoke with her about her experience on Epstein’s island between 2006 and 2007.

Maxwell is currently on trial for sex-trafficking charges in connection with Epstein – and has pleaded not guilty to all charges. Ransome will not be testifying as part of the trial and settled a civil lawsuit with Maxwell and Epstein in 2018.

theSkimm reached out to Maxwell for comment. She has yet to respond.
