Dr. Rosay quoted in Alaska Dispatch article on Alaska's most dangerous cities for women

Dr. André Rosay, Justice Center Director, is quoted in an April 26, 2012 Alaska Dispatch article by Alex DeMarban, "Anchorage, Fairbanks among 'most dangerous cities for women'."  The article builds on the April 26 online Forbes article listing the top 10 most dangerous U.S. cities for women based on sexual assault rate. It includes information from interviews with Dr. Rosay, the Anchorage Police Department, and the executive director of Standing Together Against Rape (STAR).

In the article, Dr. Rosay refers to the statewide Alaska Victimization Survey of 2010 which showed that "37 percent of adult women in Alaska had experienced sexual violence in their lifetime," and notes "the problem is far worse than law-enforcement statistics show."
