As the nation tries to determine the facts behind an alleged sexual assault involving Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, many people are pointing out that these types of assaults are common.

The #METOO movement has highlighted the problem of sexual predators in the schools and workplaces. But what sparked the #METOO movement is a cover-up culture that blames the victim.

Washington Post opinion writer Elizabeth Bruenig writes about an accusation of rape that happened in her high school in Arlington in 2006

Bruenig has been investigating the story for the last three years. Her story is titled, “What do we owe her now?”
