How can sexual assault survivors find a path to healing even when justice isn’t served? Host Sammy Caiola and Data Reporter Emily Zentner help us understand survivor experiences in the immediate aftermath of sexual violence and during police investigations.
You’ll meet women searching for inner strength and legal resolution amid trauma, experts looking at the cracks in a law enforcement system that rarely yields rape convictions or even charges, detectives trying to solve some of the most difficult cases on their desks and community advocates pushing for a future where survivors feel heard and empowered.
After the Assault was produced with support from USC Annenberg Center for Health Journalism’s Impact Fund.
