How Campus Assaults Are (mis)Treated

Today’s news about Campus Sexual Assaults comes from the Huffington Post.

The story provides an excellent example of how sexual assaults on college campuses are handled. A young woman was sexually assaulted in her dorm room. She reported it to campus authorities and filed an official report. But she wasn’t sure that she wanted to see the attacker punished.

Officials suggested a mediation session, something explicitly prohibited by the U.S. Department of Education in a letter to all colleges.

The result of the mediation was that the student took responsibility for what he did and was given a slight slap on the wrist for “disorderly conduct.” He was given a year of probation. But the assailant and the victim still see each other in classes and on campus-something that’s very traumatizing for the victim.

If women would carry a self-defense product with them such as stun gun or a pepper spray they would be able to defend themselves in these kinds of circumstances.
