Following a recent New York Times essay in which she accused adoptive father Woody Allen of sexually abusing her when she was 7, Dylan Farrow spoke to People about the backlash she has faced since.

“It took all of my strength and all of my emotional fortitude to do what I did this week in the hope that it would put the truth out there,” she told the magazine. “That is my only ammunition. I don’t have money or publicists or limos or fancy apartments in Manhattan. All I have is the truth and that is all I put out there.”

She also addressed the comments from adopted brother Moses Farrow, who categorically denied that Allen ever abused Dylan. “He has betrayed me in the cruelest way imaginable, and betrayed my family and my mother who has loved him since day one,” Dylan told People of their adopted mother, Mia Farrow. “His betrayal is the lowest form of evil that I could ever imagine.”
