The Name And Image of Dominique Strauss-Kahn's Rape AccuserTopics: International News, Political News and commentaries
Well, so much for the anonymity of Dominique Strauss-Kahn's accusser.
Although the American media hasn't released her name or image, Le Figaro has revealed that her name is Nafissatou Diallo, although she calls herself Ophelia.
Ferdinand Bardamu, over at In Mala Fide has this cleaned-up Google translation of an excerpt from Le Figaro's article:
The single mother of Dana, a teenage girl, this woman is very tall - at least 1.8 meters in height --, speaks French as her native language, and calls herself Ophelia. But her real name is Nafissatou Diallo and her native country is Guinea. She also has an American Permanent Resident Card. Most of the time, says Mark Gangadeen, a neighbor of hers quoted in the tabloid New York Post, this "practicing Muslim" wears dark pants, flat shoes and a tribal-printed scarf to cover her hair.Here's a picture of her (via Bardamu):
Bardamu has more on the story, here.
For "knee-jerk progressives" who "condemn naming the accuser" - check out what Prof. Alan Dershowitz and feminist Naomi Wolf have to say about it.
And by the way, if Kahn did in fact have sex with Nafissatou Diallo, does he now have to worry about having AIDS?
