AOL Interview with Allison Siko

November 2010
I'm Allison Siko, I play Kathleen Stabler on Law & Order: SVU

So, can you tell me a little about the episode [Gray]?
This episode is really reaching out to college students and what goes on in college and how rape can sometimes be put under the mattress so to say, to keep things quiet and keep the school's reputation. It's about young girls, how they don't have a right to be violated.

Why do you think it's important for a show like Law & Order: SVU that has this voice to raise awareness of this rape issue?
SVU is the perfect person-show entity to represent all this because they are able to reach so many. We have such a wide fan base that some people are aware of what's going on and if we can be the 1 hour of their week in their living room that informs them on the topic, such a college date-rape. Why not? Might as well reach out when you are talking to somebody
