Special guest Natally Hernandez: The Culture of Sexual Assault in Jackson
We're doing things a little differently this episode. This month's podcast comes to us from Natally Hernandez, a senior at Jackson Hole Community School. She spent the last semester of her high school career taking an in-depth look at sexual assault in Jackson Hole. She interviewed local professionals and a sexual assault survivor to try to answer the question: why is sexual assault underreported in Jackson? What makes it so hard to talk about? The final product is Hernandez's own podcast, so rather than make our own about the same topic, we thought we'd let her take the lead on this one. Heads up: this episode is all about sexual violence, and may not be suitable for all listeners.
