College is supposed to be one of the best times of your life. But know this: 1 in 5 female college students will be the victim of rape, or attempted rape on college campuses. It’s most likely to happen at the beginning of Freshman year, when girls who aren’t used to being on their own are more likely to take risks. Even worse, less than 5 percent of college rape victims report it, so most rapists are never punished.
going on here? Well, a lot of victims convince themselves that the
assault wasn’t actually rape because they KNOW the person who assaulted
them. They don’t realize that someone they know
could be a rapist and that it’s against the law to have sex with
someone who’s intoxicated and unable to consent. Even when a student
files a report, the college is often reluctant to do anything, because
they believe it may be a misunderstanding and because the accusation
might reduce enrollment. So, what can you do?
If you or someone you know has been raped, report it to the school and
the police. Over 90 percent of college rapes are committed by serial
offenders who average 6 attacks each, so they’ll probably strike again
if you don’t speak up.
know the facts: 60 percent of rapes happen in the victim’s
residence. 30 percent in someone else’s residence. 10 percent in
work to make your campus safer. Check out the website for Students
Active for Ending Rape at SaferCampus.org. They offer
rape-prevention training, bystander education, and victim advocacy
