The New Vigilante Justice: Reading the Sanford Rape Survivor's Victim Statement

This show was off the grid from our normal Virtual Newsmakers format. It is a show about solidarity, about women, and about using our voice to protest lenient sentencing, a biased justice system, and the unreasonable expectations that society places on women in our courts. This is a show to honor and support the Stanford Survivor whose words have inspired and empowered a movement for change.
