The two women suing Kansas State University after claiming the school ignored their allegations of being sexually assaulted are breaking their silence.
Sara Weckhorst and Tessa Farmer told ABC News in an exclusive interview that they went public with their names because they feel they’ve done nothing wrong.
“If this is what we have to do to make sure that this doesn’t happen to a single, one more person, if this is what it takes — then that is what we have to do,” Weckhorst told ABC News.
The women, both 21, filed separate suits against the school after they said university officials refused to investigate their reports of rape by fellow students ostensibly because the incidents had occurred off-campus.

Fortunately no one killed..31 injured.
I field produced and shot interviews and some train and passenger footage, before the wind picked up.
This is my small part in a much larger investigation into illegal, often out-dated and frequently phony prescription drugs sold from stores across the country that claim to be affiliated with Canadian Pharmacies, usually under the name “Canada Drugs.” They offer somewhat cheaper medication prices, but at what cost to the consumer:? That’s in part what this show was about.
Here to cover the Rawson County, KY clerk Kim Davis, who was released after 6 days in jail for her refusal to issue same-sex marriage licences.
Suffice to say, the day was long and hot, with many live hits in front of a frantic crowd outside the jail.
The story continues as we wait to see whether she will be back behind bars after she returns to work and continues to stay true to her Christian beliefs against gay marriage.
It is extremely difficult to interview a parent who has recently lost a child. I’ve only done it a handful of times in some 35 years and believe me, it doesn’t get any easier.
Yesterday was one of those times with Chad Carlile, whose 9 year old son Kaiser–a bat boy for the Liberal, KS Bee Jays (summer baseball team for young adults) was accidentally killed by a practice swing from one of the team’s own players during a game at the National Baseball Congress championships in Wichita, KS.
Chad was very gracious during our 25 minute interview for NBC’s Today Show. The part that moved me the most was when he talked about the decision to donate his son’s organs. I had to make a similar decision not too long ago and, to me, it signified (as Chad echoed) the acknowledgment of the passing of someone you love. The segment is featured below.
This is Chad and soon-to-be 8 yr old daughter Kierse, who he says, would be allowed to become a bat girl if she wanted to follow in her brother’s footsteps.
There is a “Go Fund Me” account for Kaiser’s funeral expenses and Keirse’s future college education.
