Since May of this year, nearly 500 women have come forward with allegations of misconduct against Dr. George Tyndall, the former USC gynecologist. The allegations go back as far as 30 years ago and many of the alleged survivors blame USC for not listening to the complaints issued over the past 30 years.

Although a majority of the women who have issued complaints against Dr. George Tyndall chose to remain anonymous, three women in particular did not.
