I spent a year interviewing men and women who had been assaulted as children and young adults. I am humbled and honored they chose to share their stories with me. I can but hope this book does justice to their faith in me.

As Tiffany Thomas-Lopez—one of the survivors—emotionally told me, “they (the enablers) super fucked me.” That theme is at the core of this book. That is what is so important for me to convey to the reader, who I hope to convince regarding the power of the enabler.

Whether you agree with me or not, I hope you listen to the survivors.

Professor Guiora offers individual lectures and short courses/workshops on the complicity of the enabler/bystander, both in contemporary cases of sexual assault and in the historical context of the Holocaust.

In addition, he looks forward to collaborating with legislators, educators, University officials, institutional leaders, and the wider public on the critical issues discussed in the book including legislative initiatives regarding bystanders and enablers, Title IX guidance, and protecting survivors from those who abandon them in their critical hour of need.
