For a year, The Frontier investigated Oklahoma’s undeclared rape crisis. Our five-part series uncovered a war-within-a-war that requires some victims to fight for their own justice while the government and other agencies struggle for personnel, funding and proven training methods to assist victims.

The series will detail how politics, the inconsistent handling of rape reports and failure to fund critical programs hinders justice for victims and allows predators to remain free.

It is a system that forces people who have been abused, harassed and raped to hide in the shadows.

Read the full investigation at www.readfrontier.org/shadowland starting Monday.
