LET'S TALK: Rape, rape culture and the bigger dialogue

Monday, December 3, 2012 | 5:11 p.m. CST; updated 3:51 p.m. CST, Thursday, March 7, 2013

Although recent rape allegations made against Missouri basketball player Michael Dixon Jr. brought the conversation about rape culture to the forefront, the issue is more than one episode, one community and one conversation. It's part of a larger dialogue. 

This post is intended to spark that larger conversation. It's an attempt to bring a series of perspectives and facts together and to promote civil discussions and understanding.
