Recently crowned Miss USA got some issues on college sexual assaults all wrong and ignited a firestorm in the process. Not a good start!
In a Q&A section of the pageant she addressed the issue of sexual assault on college campuses. She basically said “More awareness (of the issue) is very important so that women can learn to protect themselves.” She encouraged young women to learn how to defend themselves. Of course, that’s the position we have been espousing for years. But that does not address the issue which is a complex problem to be sure.
More than one in four women on a college campus will be assaulted in her time there. So it is a big problem.
Universities need to do more to; raise awareness of the issue on campus, improve reporting, strengthen penalties and protect victims better.
In the meantime, young women need to carry self-defense products with them at all times on campus and actually everywhere they go.
We heartily recommend a keychain pepper spray because it is much more likely to be with you wherever you go.
