Event description

Description

Pam Laucella presents: “Women Athletes, Violence, and Abuse: Individual and Organizational Responses and Their Impact”

Former Michigan State and USA Gymnastics Olympic team doctor Larry Nassar abused 350- plus women, including members of the 2012 Olympics’ “Fierce Five.” The Indianapolis Star broke the scandal in 2016, and outrage increased in 2018 with survivors’ statements in two Michigan courtrooms. This research investigates the scandal’s media coverage to elucidate the intersecting worlds of sex abuse, sport, and society, and the media’s role in communicating survivors’ stories.
