Marina Angel, a professor of law at Temple University and a long-time fighter for women's rights and against sexual abuse who helped draw up that university's pioneering rules against sexual harassment in 1992, talks with "This Can't Be Happening!" host Dave Lindorff about the ever expanding number of women alleging they were drugged and sexually assaulted by actor/comedian and long-time Temple University Trustee Bill Cosby. She discusses how university leaders, by following in the sorry footsteps of Penn State in continuing to cover up and ignore Cosby's abuses, risk being dragged down, along with the school's reputation, as revelations about his sordid behavior continue to make headlines.
