She Says

About the Project

WFAE’s She Says is an investigative podcast series that follows the story of a sexual assault survivor in North Carolina’s Mecklenburg County (Charlotte) and the long and difficult process in seeking justice, including challenges in dealing with the police. What results is not just a fascinating story about her case. It’s also an examination of police and the justice system when it comes to investigating sexual assault, and it’s an education of all that goes into a sexual assault investigation, beginning with evidence collection through an examination kit administered by nurses.

This eight-episode podcast launched May 31st. The website launched May 17 with a trailer. And in between, there was lots of storytelling and promotion on social media.
