About the Author

Deana Pollard Sacks is a professor of law at the Thurgood Marshall School of Law in Houston, Texas. She received an undergraduate degree from the University of Washington in 1986, a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Southern California in 1989, and an advanced law degree with an emphasis on implicit bias and discrimination from the University of California, Berkeley in 1999. Her research centers on implicit bias, children's development, sex tort liability, and regulation of dangerous speech. She is a contributing author of Implicit Racial Bias Across the Law (2012) and has authored numerous law review articles, including Sex Torts, Intentional Sex Torts, Regulating Violent Pornography, Elements of Liberty, and Constitutionalized Negligence. In 2014, she started a grassroots talk show called Meet The Professors (www.MeetTheProfessors.org) to provide free access to a conversational forum in which leading academics discuss decades of legal and scientific research concerning social issues such as the influence of sexual and violent media on children and the sexual disease epidemic. Prior to teaching full time, Professors Sacks practiced law in Los Angeles and Seattle, including employment discrimination and sexual harassment. She is actively working to eradicate sexual assault, sex abuse, and discrimination of all types, for all people. She can be reached through the Sacks Law Firm in Houston, Texas. In her very limited spare time, she enjoys skiing, surfing, hiking, and looking after hummingbirds and other wild things.

Reviews

"Professor Deana Pollard Sacks has written the definitive book about the prominent men who used their power and money to abuse women. The book is meticulously researched and very well written and engaging. It is a stark reminder that decades after the feminist movement began, women are harassed and raped by men like these and those who enable them."

―Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean,
University of California, Berkeley School of Law

"The Godfathers of Sex Abuse exposes the truth about the entertainment industry, dismantles the concept of fame, shines a light on a multibillion-dollar business built on systematic misogyny, and urges people to wake up to the power they hold as citizens for change to help eradicate sexual assault. The book is a part of the #MeToo movement that has affected public discourse about sexual violence."

―John Brittain, Professor,
University of the District of Columbia, David A. Clark School of Law

"In this beautifully written and blunt book, Deana Pollard Sacks makes an excellent case for urgent reform by exposing the truth about Jeffrey Epstein, Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, and these men's many powerful enablers. Sacks is a phenomenal writer and may prove to be one of the premier American authors of our generation."

―Alfred Brophy, Professor Emeritus,
University of Alabama School of Law

"Professor Deana Pollard Sacks provides a scathing, detailed account of how rich and powerful perpetrators of rape and sexual assault are able to abuse the legal system and unscrupulously rely on their vast connections in a shameful attempt to escape justice. But with diligent persistence, Sacks gives voice to the voiceless by championing exactly how justice should ultimately prevail over these rapists if we, as a society, remain true to our stated belief that no one is above the law."

―Fred Galves, Professor,
Lincoln Law School of Sacramento

"An absolute page-turner ... documenting the crimes of the rich and famous and the systems that protect them, leaving victims with shattered lives and dreams."

―Martina Cartwright, Professor,
Thurgood Marshall School of Law

"Professor Deana Sacks provides an extremely thought-provoking, powerful, and brave exposé of some of the most powerful sexual predators in the world. As with all her writing, she is direct, bold, and brutally honest."

―Laura L. Westray, J.D.
