For the past year, reporter Sarah Delia has worked to unwrap the case of "Linda," a Charlotte-area woman who was sexually assaulted by a stranger in 2015… and is still struggling to find answers. In a world full of #MeToo’s, justice might look as swift as one woman speaking up, but for many, resolution is a long and winding road. Follow the investigation at WFAE.org/SheSays.
The List: The When
In Episode 4 of "The List," we explore what might happen when the Catholic Diocese of Charlotte releases a list of clergy members credibly accused of sexual misconduct and abuse. The diocese says it plans to release names by the end of 2019. We hear from an advocate with personal experience who's there to listen to other survivors of abuse and from North Carolina's attorney general. And we hear how the crisis has shaped survivors' views on not just the Catholic Church but faith in general.

The List: The Why
In this episode of "The List," we learn about why survivors of abuse in the Catholic Church and proponents of accountability push for the release of lists of credibly accused clergy. We also hear some theories as to why certain people might push back against the release of such lists. And we hear from a local deacon about why he thinks the church should talk about the crisis openly. There's another why we learn about, too — why some people in power abuse children in the first place.
