rape on campus
For rape survivors who were failed by the traditional means of justice, social media provides a space to demand that their universities apologize for what happened to them.
On Wednesday, a Colorado judge ruled that Austin Wilkerson, convicted of sexually assaulting an intoxicated student in 2014, would not have to serve prison time. Elements of his case share similarities with that of Stanford rapist Brock Turner.
Title IX requires universities to protect students from "hostile environments" on campus—which can be interpreted as both raping someone and publicly accusing someone of rape.
The majority of students surveyed didn't report assaults to them because they didn't think it was "serious enough."
