A Rallying Cry and Hope for Healing

Michelle Bowdler, Executive Director of Health at Tufts University, joins Julie and Eve to discuss her recently released book, Is Rape a Crime?: A Memoir, an Investigation, and a Manifesto, which was long listed for the National Book Award. They talk about the stifling and silencing impact of sexual assault, the healing conversations that memoir can engender, and the key steps needed to increase awareness and improve treatment of sexual assault survivors, beginning with the responses of family and law enforcement.
