The actress Frances Barber and the playwright Tom Stoppard are two of the 58 signatories to a letter which says that JK Rowling is a victim of “an insidious, authoritarian and misogynistic trend in social media”
My weekend was heavy (in the very best sense!) on family and light on reading the news, so I only realised this morning that this letter appeared in the Sunday Times yesterday. I'm profoundly grateful to all the signatories, not only on a personal level, 1/3
@jk_rowling Women continue to pay a huge price for speaking out as you do. In your corner with this.
@jk_rowling You are loved and respected! Thank you for being our voice of reason!
This is also an opportunity to express my gratitude once more to the thousands of people who’ve sent me personal emails and letters of support. I’m trying to respond to all of them, so please forgive me if I haven’t yet got to yours! 3/X
