The woman’s voice trembled. She was being treated for addiction at the rehab center Hope by the Sea, she told the 911 operator, but her counselor was showing her porn and pressing his body against her. She reported him to management, she added, but no one believed her. Now the counselor is angry, she wept, saying he might lose his job because of her. She didn’t know what to do. If she left, she’d go to jail. But if she stayed…. Then she hung up, according to emergency call logs. “Jane Doe” came from Riverside to San Juan Capistrano in August of 2016 for four weeks of healing. Instead, she suffered sexual assault, sexual battery, sexual harassment and negligence, according to the lawsuit she filed in October against Hope by the Sea. … [Read more...] about Quest for sobriety often ends in sexual assault at some rehabs in Southern California
Bill Cosby pauses to talk to reporters as he leaves following a dinner at an Italian restaurant in Philadelphia on Jan. 10, 2018 Photo Credit: AP/TOM GRALISH By The Associated Press Updated January 12, 2018 10:16 AM PHILADELPHIA — Jurors couldn't agree the first time around whether to accept a woman's story that "America's Dad," Bill Cosby, sexually assaulted her over a decade ago. Now he faces a retrial in less than 90 days in a vastly different cultural climate, one in which powerful men from Hollywood to the U.S. Senate are being toppled by allegations of sexual misconduct. The jury in Cosby's case was deadlocked on charges he drugged and molested a woman in 2004, and the judge declared a mistrial in June. But that was before the revelations about movie producer Harvey Weinstein and the #MeToo movement burst into the public sphere. The shift is clearly on Cosby's mind. He quipped to a reporter after shaking her hand Wednesday outside a … [Read more...] about What will #MeToo movement mean for Cosby trial?

(The Conversation is an independent and nonprofit source of news, analysis and commentary from academic experts.) Jennifer J. Freyd, University of Oregon (THE CONVERSATION) A 27-year-old medical resident in general surgery is sexually harassed by two men – the chief resident and a staff physician at the hospital. She feels trapped. When one of the men's actions escalates to assault, she struggles to find the strength and courage to report it. When she finally does, will the outcome harm her even more? The story, a fictional composite based on real accounts in our research, is agonizingly familiar. The outcome is often worse. When sexual harassment and assault occur in the context of an institution – a school, the military, a workplace – the behavior of institutional leaders can become a powerful force in how the victim fares. From Susan Fowler's poor treatment by Uber's human resources department to the silence of non-abusive men in Harvey Weinstein's … [Read more...] about When sexual assault victims speak out, their institutions often betray them

For two months now, as accusations of sexual misconduct have piled up against Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced mogul has responded over and over again: “Any allegations of nonconsensual sex are unequivocally denied.” Consent is a concept central to law on sexual assault, and will likely be an issue in potential legal cases against Weinstein, who is under investigation by police in four cities, and others accused in the current so-called “reckoning.” But the definition of consent — namely, how it is expressed — is a matter of intense debate: Is it a definite “yes,” or the mere absence of “no”? Can it be revoked? Do power dynamics come into play? Legally, the definition varies widely across the nation. “Half the states don’t even have a definition of consent,” says Erin Murphy, a professor at New York University School of Law who’s involved in a project to rewrite a model penal code on sex assault. … [Read more...] about In sex assault laws, definition of consent varies widely
