… and they brought us whole binders full of women.
– Mitt Romney, US Presidential Debate, 2012
It wasn’t until after the attack
I discovered the binder. Forty-seven
girls drugged, stripped, photographed,
raped. Page 48 sits empty, waiting
for the photo they took of me. Greek
Council enforced crackdown on hazing,
but for this, Sigma Chi had no such
policy. Buried beneath public
philanthropy and brotherhood, lie
bones of broken sisters, shattered souls,
shards of shame – a mosaic whose mortar
weakened year by year, one woman bravely
blowing the lid off the coffin.
