In this episode, Fred Lane interviews Amos Guiora, a law professor at the University of Utah. The bulk of the interview centers on Professor Guiora’s recently published book, “Armies of Enablers: Survivor Stories of Complicity and Betrayal in Sexual Assaults”. In his book, Professor Guiora attempts to answer a difficult question:
“What do sexual assault survivors expect of the enabler-bystander? In this powerful book, Amos N. Guiora shares the stories of survivors to expose how individual and institutional enablers allow predators to perpetrate their crimes through silence and other failures to act. He then proposes legal, cultural, and social measures aimed at the enabler from the survivor’s perspective.”
In addition to his work at the University of Utah law school, Professor Guiora has been active in S.E.S.A.M.E., the organization led by Terri Miller that is working the so-called “passing of the trash.”
