It's with a sad mix admiration and despair that you read her story. They say progress is very cruel to those who force it, but her case, her voice, her judge and even her attacker are so different now than ten years ago. It's a painful story and there are some consequences that are permanent, but it still feels like progress. I will be making my sons read this as young teenagers so they can have the kind of courage the two graduate students had and the character to never be the young, promising swimmer whose damning "boys will be boys" defense almost worked.
