This one also counts as the most important thing I've read this week. And, honestly, I forgot to post last week, but this piece by the brilliant and brave Jessica Luther and Dan Solomon, is the best thing I've read in the last 10 days.
Fifty-two acts of rape. A Christian college. The lawyer who unearthed the Monica Lewinsky affair. And a winning Texas football team. This story has it all. This will haunt me for a long time -- especially as the athletic director overseeing the program now oversees athletics at Liberty University. Especially as Art Briles interviews for other coaching jobs.
But, I will also never forget the women whose lives were forever changed. I hope the same goes for you after you finish reading this fiercely reported and bravely told story.
