Are Women At Greater Risk Of Assault In College?

In this article U.S Sen. Mark Warner says women in college are more at risk of being sexually assaulted than those who don’t go to college.

Sen. Warner has used this statistic one in five women in college are assaulted on more than one occasion and uses that as the basis for his claim.

“Schools are not the safe havens they once appeared to be; college women are at higher risk for sexual assault than their non-college-bound peers,” said a 2005 report on campus sexual assault by the U.S. Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice.

NIJ based its conclusion on an early 1997 survey when it asked 4,446 female college students in the U.S. whether they’d been sexually victimized since the start of that school year. Almost 16 percent of the women said they had experienced “victimization,” a term that was defined as anything from unwanted touching to forcible rape.”
