'Depraved Ghislaine Maxwell betrayed the sisterhood and seemed not the least bit sorry'

How a woman can do this to other women is abhorrent, since Ghislaine Maxwell turned girls over to Epstein to fund the luxury lifestyle to which she was entitled

As a victim of harassment, I have closely followed the Ghislaine Maxwell trial.

I was 13 years old when my uncle touched me inappropriately, and while I don’t compare myself to any of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims, I’m relieved that justice has finally been done to them.

It’s incredible to look at another woman and believe that she was implicitly involved in abusing vulnerable young girls.

It is difficult for victims to express themselves. There is so much shame and guilt about being abused. Do you have thoughts like: Am I damaged goods? Was it my fault Why didn’t I do anything earlier? It is harrowing for victims to relive these details in court. Still, Maxwell sat emotionless and showed no remorse.

One has the impression that she is not in the least sorry for her actions. She didn’t seem to realize the pain these women had gone through so that she could live the high life with Epstein.

When I read about her childhood and how her father allegedly bullied her, I get the feeling that she is looking at the world and saying, “I was hurt and nobody came to my rescue, so I don’t get to anyone else.”

When she was sentenced, she didn’t flinch, just poured herself a drink of water. At some point during the trial, she turned to the court draftsman and began drawing them. Her mind wasn’t even on what was happening in court – a sign of a massive lack of empathy.

How one woman can do that to other women is abhorrent. She was ready to hand these girls over to Epstein to fund the luxurious lifestyle she was used to and entitled to.

My heart went to the girls who testified.

The judgment was really important because it shows that we live in a world where rich and famous doesn’t mean you are above the law. The law is there to serve all.

It has been a long road for the victims, but they finally have justice. If Maxwell had decency now, she would do the right thing and reveal the names of other men who were allowed access to the women concerned.

We all feel uncomfortable knowing that there are people who have abused young girls. The whole thing, of course, puts Prince Andrew in an awkward position again. But if he’s innocent – and he denies any wrongdoing – he has to come forward and present evidence.

People won’t rest until they know the truth. He has a lot of money for research. So if he was at the Pizza Express in Woking on the night he allegedly had sex with Virginia Giuffre, it shouldn’t be that hard to find people who saw him there.

I know he’s out of the spotlight right now, but the Queen really needs to tell him it’s time to go to America and tell the authorities everything he knows. If he doesn’t, the British will continue to mistake him for a legitimate prince who mocks justice.

As for Ghislaine, I don’t even think she thinks what she did was wrong. She is a depraved traitor to the sisterhood.
