Colleges Challenged To Get Tough On Assaults

Here’s a story from the Kansas City Star about how colleges are showing much more interest in Violence Against Women. The gist of the story is that a lot more effort is being put into campus sexual assaults, how they are investigated and how they are prosecuted.

Nationwide campuses are being investigated for violations of title IX which jeopardizes financial support from the feds. Schools now have a vested interest in complying with the law. But it’s not all their fault.

“With a national dialogue focused on getting more students to report such incidents and having schools act on the complaints, a college’s record of response might eventually affect how it’s viewed by potential students and their parents.

In an open letter to U.S. News & World Report, a dozen members of Congress suggest the magazine consider how a college handles reports of sexual violence when forming its annual ranking of best colleges.

How a college fares could be a blow to its revenues if students start bypassing schools that don’t step up their fight.

It has been estimated that as many as 30 to 40% of all women will be sexually assaulted in her four years at a University. There are many things that young women can do to prevent being assaulted, but one of the easiest to do is to get a self-defense product such as a Taser.

The Taser C2 was developed specifically for women. It is much smaller than other Taser models but does the same things like shoot out two electrified darts up to 15 feet away and takedown assailants with near 100% efficiency.
