NEW YORK, July 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "As the leading national foundation working to end child sexual abuse, the Ms. Foundation for Women expresses outrage that top Penn State university officials sacrificed children under Sandusky's supervision to preserve reputations.

"This shameful failure by top university officials to protect children should serve as a wake-up call to other institutions whose policies, or lack thereof, leave children vulnerable to sexual abuse."
