From the venerable “Mother Jones” comes this article on campus sexual assaults. They start off by criticizing the thoroughness of the reporting behind the recent article in Rolling Stone’s investigation into sexual assault at the University of Virginia.
They were quick to point out that the environment at UVA is not unique on American college campuses-more likely the norm.
Back in 2007 the Department of Justice’s national Institute of justice did a study of nearly 5400 undergraduate women and two large public universities to produce some of the best data available on that topic.
“A 2009 follow-up study by the same researchers found that by the time they are seniors, 1 in 5 undergraduate women report experiencing sexual assault since they started college. (In contrast, 4 percent of the survey’s male respondents said that they’d been sexually assaulted in college.) That figure mirrors recent findings that 19 percent of women in the United States have been raped during their lifetimes.”
None of these studies ever focus on what women can do to help protect themselves against sexual assault.
