Climate of Indifference Is Part of Why the Sandusky Sexual Assaults Occurred

Joanne Tosti-Vasey, National NOW board member, writes on her blog: “This morning, Joe Paterno’s family released their report contradicting much of Judge Louis Freeh’s report on why the child sexual assaults at Penn State University occurred. In this report, they state that there were essentially no issues within the football program (and, by implication, the Athletics program in general) that would have created what I call the ‘Climate of Indifference’ at The Penn State University towards sexual assault, domestic and acquaintance violence, and stalking.”
