Trigger Warning: This episode discusses sexual violence.
Stephanie Mosley experienced sexual violence perpetrated by a schoolmate in college, then a football player at her alma mater, the University of Alabama. In spite of being blamed and called a liar, Stephanie ultimately decided to press charges — but her case was never prosecuted.
It is estimated that out of 1000 rapes, only 310 victims report the incident. Of these, only 25 are prosecuted. In this episode, we tackle weak enforcement mechanisms that fail to hold sexual violence perpetrators, how victims are silenced from reporting their case, and why survivors like Stephanie don’t get the justice they deserve.
Featuring policy and advocacy insights from: Stephanie Mosley, Rape Survivor and Creator of The Antidote Conference, Jacqui Hunt, Global Lead, End Sexual Violence Campaign, at Equality Now, and Jane Manning, Director at Women's Equal Justice Project.
