There are two things most people know about rape kits: There’s a huge backlog of kits that have never been tested, and “Law and Order” always gets their rape kits tested immediately. That’s a start, but there is a whole lot more about the kits, the law, the Violence Against Women Act, and who pays for them. Do you know whether it is only police or the individual who can request the test? Does a victim have to prosecute if the police get a rape kit tested? How about the privacy issue? The Department of Justice recently released an evaluative report answering these questions and more. Katy Waldman has investigated and reported on the latest DOJ information and she will be here to share that information with us on Saturday. Katy writes about women's issues, culture, books, and science for Slate magazine, where she is an assistant editor. Her work has appeared in the Paris Review Daily, the Washington Post, Narrative, and elsewhere. She lives in Washington, DC.
