Sexual Assault On Campus
Sexual assault on campus used to be something few people talked about, but not because it wasn’t happening. It’s estimated that one in five college students is sexually assaulted. Too often victims don’t get help and alleged perpetrators are never charged. But this may change: the Violence Against Women Act includes a provision to address sexual assault on campus. And activists are increasingly using social media to connect with each other and share information on how Title IX of the Civil Rights Act can be applied to college rape cases.
