A Story From a Miami Girl

"Sexual assaults devastate students’ lives despite implemented training and reporting systems. My suspicion of Miami’s effort to end rape culture at the university grew to anger throughout my time at Miami. Every sexual assault report email added gas to the fire inside my chest.

The year of the yes: a look back
