Know Your IX organizer (and Feministing blogger!) Wagatwe Wanjuki speaks at a press conference to introduce the CASAct.

Two bipartisan bills that would empower college students against campus sexual assault were announced this past week in the Senate and House.

The comment section of every article about campus sexual violence ever

Why didn’t she just report to the police? Rape is a crime. Crimes get reported to the police. How do we know this even happened? Rape isn’t just a crime. Rape steals a woman’s soul and she is deprived of a piece of her heart that she will never again regain.  She will be a shell of her former self forever. I weep for her. Thanks for this coverage. As a college survivor, it means a lot to me to hear about other people coming forward and speaking out. #3, how do we know you’re telling the truth? You don’t have any proof you were raped. Yea #3 you can’t just make accusations like that #3, a friend of mine was falsely accused of ...
