Sexual assault

Each year an estimated 1 in 4 women on college campuses will be sexually assaulted. In a recent survey of 6,104 students at 33 college campuses, 15 percent of the women reported having been raped. A higher percentage of women reported coerced sexual activity that did not include penetration. The problem of rape and sexual assault are not limited to women on U.S. campuses. Five percent of the male students in the above survey reported being forced to have sex. In 85 percent of the sexual assaults reported in the survey, women noted that their attacker was someone they knew. Acquaintance rape continues to be a serious problem on college campuses.
