Please join the Birnbaum Women’s Leadership Network and NYU’s Institute for Public Knowledge for a virtual book talk on Deborah Tuerkheimer’s new book, Credible: Why We Doubt Accusers and Protect Abusers, which examines why we are primed to disbelieve allegations of sexual abuse — and how we can transform a culture and a legal system structured to dismiss accusers.

*Emily Sack ’91 (moderator), Professor of Law, Roger Williams University School of Law; Adjunct Professor, NYU School of Law
