Jeneé Osterheldt of the Boston Globe recently interviewed BARCC Executive Director Gina Scaramella for an opinion piece on R. Kelly.
Excerpt: "Reporting rape is hard for every victim, says Scaramella, who has worked to help survivors of sexual assault and rape for more than 20 years. But the hurdles grow higher when you add in factors like disability, orientation, language, and race. 'He’s been very effective at choosing folk who we as a society care about less,' she says of Kelly. 'We have to look for whose voices are not being heard or being acted on in the same way. We have to be very purposeful in creating space for marginalized groups to ensure all survivors are heard.'"
