Root Issues. UsNews. Retrieved from
In this article, Allie Bidwell highlights the statistical data on sexual
assault on college campuses and expresses the concerns about the

universities protecting their own brand rather than facing the

problems. Bidwell also mentions the new act called The Campus
Accountability and Safety Act and the Its On Us campaign, both of
which petition for colleges to give more support to the victims and
work on preventing future assaults. This article acknowledges several
more prevention methods and numerous ways that colleges could give
additional support to victims, which is always necessary because
colleges are struggling to address students sexual assault claims.
When discussing a social justice topic such as sexual assault, it is
important to mention data about assault on campuses and suggest
further ways to help victims and reduce crime. This article happens to
mention both, which is extremely helpful to the research on sexual
assault and is a nice addition to use in a project to bring awareness to
the issue.

Gray, E. (May 26, 2014). The college town of Missoula, Mont., saw at least 80
reported rapes over three years, earning it the name America's Rape
Capital. But the nickname has it wrong. Missoula isn't special; it is fairly
average. The truth is, for young women, America's campuses are
dangerous places. Time, Volume 183(20). pp. 20-27.

This article discusses how U.S. college campuses are a hazardous

place for young women, especially 18-19 year olds. There are several
statistics on rape and sexual abuse on college campuses included that
would be helpful to analyze in order to discuss sexual assault
awareness. The article relates multiple incidents of sexual assault on
different college campuses. In addition, it also discusses findings that
sexual assault perpetrators are largely comprised of repeat offenders
and attempts to explain why rape rates are high on college campuses.
There is data in this article that would support the cause for additional
sexual assault awareness on college campuses.

Capacity to Prevent Campus Sexual Assault. Boston University Law
Review, 95 (1049), 1046-1077.
In this article, Katharine Silbaugh questions the effectiveness of the Title IX
law to protect victims of sexual assault and explains how the law may be
focusing too much on addressing assaults rather than prevention.
Furthermore, Silbaugh explains that sexual assault prevention can be
approached in two ways, public health and law enforcement, and Title IX

focuses on the law enforcement approach. It is implied from this source that
colleges are more worried about the consequences of violating the Title IX
law, rather than putting effort into lowering the rates of assault. This article
questions the legal obligation of colleges to act on sexual assault on campus
and opens up the discussion on whether or not this law should be replaced
with another law. Reviewing the laws on sexual assault is crucial because it is
important to know what colleges are legally obligated to do for victims and
how they are acting against the wrongdoing.
