On August 25th, 2021 the student newspaper at Yeshiva University, The Commentator, published an anonymous opinion piece entitled, “I Thought Rape Culture Didn’t Exist at YU — Until I Was Raped.” Its allegations were deeply troubling, and charged that the university was extremely negligent in its handling of the serious charge that a Yeshiva College student on the basketball team had raped a student from Stern College.
In this episode, Scott interviews Shifra Lindenberg and Asher Lovy about the very controversial Non Disclosure Agreement, the failures of the Title IX office, where Yeshiva University went wrong , and what changes need to occur to prevent administrative negligence and failure in the future.
