Robbins chooses to "unveil" the "secret" lives of sororities. In fact, none of sorority life is specifically kept secret save for our national rituals, most conceived of in the 19th century. Hazing is considered a most destructive and irresponsible practice which the National Panhellenic Conference does not support and has never supported. In addition, any dangerous behavior that was in fact witnessed should be reported to local and campus authorities, rather than simply splashed irresponsibly across a newspaper or in a "tell-all" book for profits.
The 26 national sororities in the United States are wonderful places for a young woman to grow and learn during and beyond their college years. It is irresponsible to slander past, current, and future members of Greek life with stories of rampant sexual assault, drug use, discrimination, and hazing. Past members of sororities include lawyers, astronauts, women's rights advocates, and senators.
