On Being Raped

Listen 00:03:19

A new book deals candidly with a very difficult topic.

For decades, history professor Raymond Douglas kept a terrible secret. As a young man, he was brutally beaten and raped by a priest in his parish. He decided to break the silence – and has written a new book called “On Being Raped.”

In their weekly conversation, psychologist Dan Gottlieb and WHYY’s behavioral health reporter Maiken Scott discuss the book.
