Christina Hoff Sommers & Stuart Taylor: College rape culture & the death of due process | VIEWPOINT

The United States legal system operates on the theory that the accused is innocent until proven guilty.

Interview conducted by AEI Resident Scholar Christina Hoff Sommers, aka The Factual Feminist.
