Abstract: Two years after her rape by her supervisor at her summer job (age 19), she reported the abuse to the dean of students at her college (BJU - Bob Jones University - The Fortress of Faith).

“He goes, ‘Well, there’s always a sin under other sin. There’s a root sin,’” Landry remembers. “And he said, ‘We have to find the sin in your life that caused your rape.’ And I just ran."

Landry ended up dropping out of college, and didn’t tell anyone else for five years.
