Liar Laurie : Breaking the Silence on Sexual Assault
by Laurie Katz


Overview - When Laurie went to college in Chicago, she was all set to embark on a new life. But on the third weekend of her freshman year, Laurie was raped. And everything changed. In the aftermath, Laurie reached out for help. But she didn't get any. Friends didn't believe her. The dean didn't support her. Laurie had to fight not just for justice but for understanding. For validation. Laurie could have dropped out of college, she could have given up, but she carried on. And not even seeing her attacker on campus could stop her. Laurie's story is an all-too familiar account of how the fight for justice is repeated in campuses and courtrooms around the world. Laurie never got the justice she deserved. But she got something else - a resolute sense of her own self, and her own strength. Laurie's #MeToo story is a testament to the strength and courage of people who have been wronged, but never stop fighting back
