We鈥檙e just five days away from Donald Trump鈥檚 inauguration (and six from the planned Women鈥檚 March on Washington!), and with the big day approaching faster than many would like, a Canadian journalist who accused Trump of sexual assault is opening up about what the election process (and its result) has been like for her.

Natasha Stoynoff is a Toronto author, former People writer and one of 15 women who was brave enough to step forth and share her story. Last October, she published an article in People in which she detailed how, while doing a story on Donald Trump and Melania鈥檚 marriage at their Florida estate, he pushed her against a wall and kissed her.

Speaking with Chatelaine, Natasha revealed that her motivation for writing the piece was simple: 鈥淚t was important to say something for the record, both as a journalist and also as a woman who experienced what he was talking about on that tape.鈥 Admitting that she avoided going online after the piece was published in order to stay away from potential backlash, she says the President-Elect鈥檚 win 鈥渃ut deeper because I had made myself vulnerable by writing what I wrote, and then he attacked me,鈥 explained Natasha (this in reference to Trump鈥檚 response, 鈥淭ake a look at her鈥 I don鈥檛 think so.鈥). 鈥淚 was hoping to inform Americans about him with my story, but it didn鈥檛 really matter to many. I think that鈥檚 what hurt the most.鈥

For Natasha, being deemed 鈥渋rrelevant鈥 or 鈥渘ot credible鈥 had to be extremely painful, especially considering the fact that her job revolves around being both relevant and credible. 鈥淭here may be people out there who didn鈥檛 believe my story or the [stories of] other women. And there may be people who did, but just didn鈥檛 care. There are things more important to them in a president than if he grabs women when he鈥檚 alone with them,鈥 she continued, concluding: 鈥淚鈥檇 rather not have him be president. I can鈥檛 tell if he鈥檚 smart in any way, even in business.鈥

Now, if you鈥檙e wondering if she鈥檒l be at the Women鈥檚 March, the answer is yes鈥 if she can get an extension on her February 1 book deadline.
