â€˜Iâ€™m No Longer Afraidâ€™: 35 Women Tell Their Stories About Being Assaulted by Bill Cosby, and the Culture That Wouldnâ€™t ListenA portfolio of 35 women who were allegedly raped or sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby and their varying struggles to prosecute and heal. The article explores how shifting cultural conceptions of rape evolved the media's willingness to credit these women's claims. It focuses particularly on the shift in recognizing that acquaintance rape is more common than stranger or even violent rape and how race played a role in survivors willingness to press charges and people's willingness to believe their allegations.
