Former Academy Student Tells Her Assault Experiences

Lynn Hall wishes she could go back to her 20-year-old self standing on the University of Colorado Boulder campus, grab her younger shoulders and share the news that she proudly published a memoir about her rape on the United States Air Force Academy campus in Colorado.

“My younger self wouldn’t have believed it,” she said.

Hall did the next best thing Tuesday, standing up in front of a class she once sat in as a student, bearing her truth to the crowded lecture in Professor Joanne Belknap’s “violence against women and girls” course.
