Two cops are acquitted of rape.  The DSK case falls apart.  A man buys a 14-year old girl for sex and gets community service.  How do stereotypes about rape impact a survivor's ability to get justice?  How do they impact our understanding of sexual assault and what can be done about it?  Join our discussion and ignite change.
