Survivors of Campus Sexual Assault Speak Out

Annie E. Clark and Andrea L. Pino

“Changing the conversation forever, 30 survivors of campus sexual assault and cover-ups from all races, backgrounds, and genders, speak out in Annie E. Clark and Andrea L. Pino’s monumental exposé, We Believe You.”—Vanity Fair  

“Me too. It happened to me too.”

More than twenty percent of women and five percent of men are sexually assaulted while at college. After decades of near silence from school communities, some survivors are not coming forward. In We Believe You, students from every kind of college and university—large and small, public and private, highly selective and less so—share experiences of trauma, healing, and everyday activism. They represent a diversity of races, economic and family backgrounds, gender identities, immigration statuses, interests, capacities, and loves. Theirs is a bold, irrefutable sampling of voices and stories that should speak to all.
