Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town - Jon Krakauer

Wow. What a painful and important book. I simultaneoulsy feel like I have nothing to say and an entire treatise to write.


We all know there's a problem with rape and sexual assault in America, and especially in American colleges. We all know the justice system is flawed and frequently punishes the victims and survivors of assault far more than the perpetrators. But to see it laid out in such a thoroughly researched book was a hard pill to swallow. I'm so glad it was written and I hope it's widely read and endures until we see real and true reform.
