Sociological Imagination

As a high school girl soon going off the collage this story concerns me. Putting myself in her shoes I would take those boys to court and make them pay for their mistake. I would not hide the incident to help the school keep a good name, the school should be ashamed for even attempting to do that.

Empathy connected to the issue

The only way people are going to help this "rape culture" stop is to be able to put them selfs in the situation themselves, to be able to think what it would feel like to be the girl or her family members in that situation. This seems to be a normal thing in society that people try to cover up rape like this one incident, and this male dominated society needs to end.
