Sher Fuller-Hookano was raped by a stranger in her Laguna Beach home in March. I told you about the attack and its aftermath, in ugly detail, a month ago. It was a difficult column to write because I was so chilled by Sher's pain. I worried that her resolve to tell her story, not as a nameless victim but as a woman unashamed to say, "Look what someone has done to me," could hurt her even more. I asked her, time and again, "Are you sure you want me to use your name?"

Last week, the New York Times printed a remarkably detailed profile of a 29-year-old woman who has accused Ted Kennedy's nephew of raping her in Palm Beach, Fla. The newspaper published this woman's name, against her wishes. It quoted an unnamed high school acquaintance as saying this woman "had a little wild streak," and then noted that she did lousy in school, has a daughter born out of wedlock, a bad driving record and a mother some might call a gold digger. It went on, and on.
