Rolling Stone’s “A Rape on Campus”

Rolling Stone published then retracted A Rape on Campus: A Brutal Assault and Struggle for Justice at UVA. The article was an account of Jackie being gang raped at a fraternity house and the response by those around her. Putting it mildly, it’s an ugly story, compounded by the retraction due to “discrepancies in Jackie’s account”, as Rolling Stone put it. The events as Rolling Stone published them may or may not be accurate, but there are numerous girls with stories that follow the same outline. Hopefully one day we’ll get to a point where there are no stories like this.
