For rape survivors, the judicial system can feel like a second attack. How rapes are investigated and prosecuted varies widely from state to state. Amanda Nguyen, founder of the group Rise, is trying to correct that. In an interview with the New York Times, Nguyen talked about her work advocating changes in both state and federal law.
"The greatest injustice I have ever faced was not the act of rape itself, but rather, the subsequent denial of my rights... As a survivor, I learned that not all are equal in the eyes of the law."
