Breaking the Silence

Reporting stories about rape is difficult because of the fear and shame that victims often have. But Pam Louwagie and Dan Browning of the Minneapolis Star Tribune are able to tell the story of how immigrant girls in the Hmong community in the Twin Cities area are being sexually assaulted in frightening numbers. Louwagie's and Browning's story, "Shamed into Silence," tells of this suffering through the ordeal of one Hmong teen and describes how the community is struggling to combat the problem. Warning: this is a disturbing and graphic story.
