But Moses Farrow, now a family counseler, has sided with Allen, telling People this week that: "Of course Woody did not molest my sister. She loved him and looked forward to seeing him when he would visit. She never hid from him until our mother succeeded in creating the atmosphere of fear and hate towards him. The day in question, there were six or seven of us in the house. We were all in public rooms and no one, not my father or sister, was off in any private spaces. My mother was conveniently out shopping. I don't know if my sister really believes she was molested or is trying to please her mother. Pleasing my mother was very powerful motivation because to be on her wrong side was horrible."

Moses said his mother "drummed it into me to hate my father for tearing apart the family and sexually molesting my sister," and that he now sees it as her "vengeful way to pay him back for falling in love with Soon-Yi."

Dylan Farrow, however, has said that she "won't be silenced."

"From the bottom of my heart, I will be forever grateful for the outpouring of support I have received from survivors and countless others," she said. "If speaking out about my experience can help others stand up to their tormentors, it will be worht the pain and suffering my father continues to inflict on me."
