Why campus approaches to sexual violence shouldn’t be more like criminal trials

Over at The American Prospect, Alexandra has a thorough and much-needed explanation of why campus disciplinary proceedings on sexual violence should not just become more like criminal cases but instead enforce procedural reforms that protect both survivors and the accused.

Phyllis Schlafly says too many women in college is driving campus sexual violence

In my more youthful and energetic days, I read and reviewed an entire book co-authored by Phyllis Schlafly, a rather absurd endeavor given that Schlafly’s worldview is hopelessly incoherent, hypocritical, and fantastical, but which left me with an enduring fascination with the career anti-feminist, who is still at it at age 90.

On Rolling Stone, lessons from fact-checking, and the limits of journalism

It was as both a feminist and former fact-checker that I watched with rage on Friday as Rolling Stone distanced themselves from the account of a gang rape at UVA they published last month, covering for their own journalistic missteps by throwing Jackie, the rape survivor at the center of the piece, under the bus. And the rage is only growing as many of the journalists now rushing to condemn Rolling Stone are starting to spin a tale of how a “Believe the Victims” mentality got in the way of good journalism in this case.

How can anyone push survivors to report to the police this week?

The irony is nauseating. In major media outlets you could find, right next to each other, articles about the grand jury decision not to indict the cop who murdered Eric Garner and Virginia’s plans to push more victims into the criminal justice system.
