2018 Breaking Through Barriers Luncheon

A Twist on Title IX: From Victim’s Voice to Victim to Victor
Friday, April 6, 2018

1 in 5 women are the victim of sexual assault in college.

Title IX typically protects males’ and females’ access to education.
Susan Burhans Landino wanted to protect Yale students from Sexual Assault.
Instead, Title IX protected her. From Victims’ Voice to Victim to Victor.

AAUW Huntsville Branch’s 2018 Breaking through Barriers luncheon with feature Susan Burhans Landino speaking on her case and experiences related to Title IX . (Burhans V Yale)

When Susan Burhans accepted a position at Yale University in 1999, campus sexual assault wasn’t a big part of the national media conversation. Hired to work on communications and campus safety, Burhans had no idea that Title IX would play a significant role in her work. Once students started bringing her complaints about the school’s handling of sexual assault, and she learned more about the experiences of student survivors, Burhans began to believe that the school’s methods for adjudicating complaints of sexual assault might violate Title IX.

Ultimately, she was demoted, then terminated due to her support of the students and challenges to to the university’s lack of protection under Title IX.

Friday, April 6, 11:30 – 1 at the Jackson Center in Huntsville (6001 Moquin Way NW)
