CONTENT WARNING: Sexual assault, suicide, suicidal ideation, depression, institutional silencing?

What happens when the trauma of sexual assault extends beyond the event itself? What happens when an academic institution that is meant to protect its students ends up perpetuating further harm? On today’s episode, Katie interviews an anonymous guest who speaks about the experience of sexual assault that took place when she was an undergraduate student at Brown University and the aftermath of those events. While stories in the media of sexual assault are often portrayed as black and white, this particular narrative brings out why that approach often doesn’t do justice to these complex, nuanced stories and the imperfect people behind them.?
