On January 31, 2015, Mandi Gray was reportedly sexually assaulted by a fellow PhD student at York University. Since then, Mandi has been recognized as the "face of rape on campus" by the Canadian media and has become a recognizable activist and advocate for herself and others with similar experiences.
Mandi joins co-hosts Gilad Cohen and Simona Ramkisson for Season 2 of The Hum Podcast where she uses this episode as a platform to talk about institutional betrayal, naming sexual assault, becoming one of the few to take her case to trial, and the stresses of a movie premiere.
Hosted by Gilad Cohen (Founder, JAYU) and Simona Ramkisson.
Produced and edited by Brandon Fragomeni and Alex Castellani.
The show is a JAYU production. JAYU is a Toronto-based charity that shares human rights stories through the arts. JAYU has an annual Human Rights Film Festival, a photography empowerment project and more. You can learn more about JAYU here.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
