As most survivors of sexual harassment and assault will tell you, the problems do not stop when you come forward. Unfortunately, survivors will continue to experience hardship after hardship after telling their truth. My respect and gratitude toward these individuals, especially women since a disproportionate amount of survivors are women, grows with every story that I read because I know that it is so very difficult to speak the truth knowing that the likelihood of your experience getting easier is very slim.
It is due to reports like that which Olsen has provided us with that make the complete difference when we talk about accountability. Olsen has given us a thorough account of her investigation into McBroom's experiences. This has proven to do few things for me in particular: (1) it has given me background on a story I didn't not know about before reading this book, (2) Olsen has provided this story for me in a way that has made Code of Silence to be quite a page-turner, and (3) it has given a louder voice to survivors.
I recommend this book to all readers, but especially those who enjoy the topic of true crime and social sciences. It is a fantastic piece of work meant to make you think and dig deeper. Bravo.
