On a night when women across Hollywood came together to commemorate a year since the #MeToo movement shook the entertainment industry, Amber Heard shared an open letter from “some of the most painful and difficult times in my life.”

At the Incredible Women gala hosted by Porter Magazine on Tuesday night, Heard read aloud from an open letter she had written for the publication in December of 2016, shortly after filing for divorce from ex-husband Johnny Depp. Heard alleged that the actor had physically and emotionally abused her, which Depp denied. She donated her entire divorce settlement to domestic violence and children’s charities.

Before reading the letter, she told the crowd that she wrote it to her “silent sisters” because “at the time, my voice was alone, it was one that certainly felt alone. And Porter Magazine ran this open letter when it was perhaps most difficult, and for that reason I feel honored to be here sharing this space with so many brave, powerful women, and I just wanted to take a moment to say how much I appreciate it. Also, crazy how relevant these words are today, two and a half years later.”
