The sexual violence epidemic

The issue of sexual assault on college campuses has been in the spotlight this week, as the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault launched a new informational website,, highlighting the problem.

Despite significant progress for women and girls, women still face the highest rates of dating violence and sexual assault.   As Jody Raphael’s book Rape is Rape: How Denial, Distortion, and Victim Blaming Are Fueling a Hidden Acquaintance Rape Crisis points out, between 10.6% and 16.1% of American women have been raped.  Last year alone, 1 in 10 teens have reported being physically hurt on purpose by a boyfriend or girlfriend.


In an attempt to begin a dialogue on the issue, we’ve compiled some articles on the subject you might find interesting:
