How Laws Protect Sexual Abusers 15

A reason that abusers are able to continue to abuse is that the institutions they are affiliated with protect them. Martha C. Nussbaum is the Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics at the University of Chicago, and she joins host Krys Boyd to talk about how pride, narcissism and toxic masculinity are hallmarks of abusers, and how these men have created a world that largely shields them from responsibility. Her book is called “Citadels of Pride: Sexual Abuse, Accountability, and Reconciliation.”
