Justice Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford accepted an empowerment award from the YWCA Silicon Valley for accusing the Supreme Court Judge of uncorroborated sexual misconduct.

Ford, who last year collected her $650,000 from a GoFundMe account before releasing a statement, said she was 'humbled' to receive the award.

“I’m deeply humbled to receive this award,” Blasey Ford said, The Hill reported.

“It’s funny. I was inspired by Anita Hill when I was deciding whether to testify, but it didn’t occur to me at the time that I would be inspiring anyone else.”

“I simply thought that it was my duty as a citizen,” she added, referring to testifying against Kavanaugh.

“Anyone in my position would do the same thing.”

“When my family was forced out of our home last year, we had resources, and we had friends who made sure that we had safe places to go and stay,” Blasey Ford claimed.

“So many women do not. So many women do not have the privilege that my professional position afforded me. It is much harder for them to speak up. But women in Silicon Valley have you.”

The California professor accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a house party in the early 1980s in a letter Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) last year.

She was, however, unable to specify exactly where or when the alleged incident took place.

The suspicious claim remained uncorroborated, and the witnesses she named denied any knowledge of the part or accusations.

Ultimately, there was “no evidence to substantiate any of the claims," the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee found.

“In neither the committee’s investigation nor in the supplemental background investigation conducted by the FBI was there ANY evidence to substantiate or corroborate any of the allegations,” the Committee said.

Last month, one of Christine Blasey Ford's attorneys, Debra Katz, was caught on video admitting that her client's testimony against Justice Brett Kavanaugh last year was politically motivated.

Speaking before an audience at the University of Baltimore's Feminist Legal Theory Conference in April, Katz boasted that her client was motivated to testify against then-SCOTUS nominee Kavanaugh, with allegations of decades-old sexual assault, to put "an asterisk" next to the future Supreme Court justice's name.

"In the aftermath of these hearings, I believe that Christine's testimony brought about more good than the harm misogynist Republicans caused by allowing Kavanaugh on the court," the Katz said at the event, where she filmed giving a keynote speech, according to Newsweek.
