Accusation of rape at Otago University hostel

From Morning Report, 7:16 am on 9 April 2019

A former student who lived at an Otago University hostel claims she was raped in her room five years ago but didn't tell anyone because she believed her complaint would be dismissed. Her allegations come after a series of claims published in the Otago student magazine Critic from women who say there is a toxic culture at Knox College and sexual assault and harassment are not taken seriously.
