U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., released the following statement on the report by the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault:
Further, U.S. Rosa DeLauro, D-3, also released a statement on the report:
"I am pleased to see the Administration recognize the continuing crisis of sexual assault on college campuses. But now the onus is on schools and law enforcement to see them through and end this outrage, which happens on campuses all over America. It was not all that long ago, before the Violence Against Women Act, that rape and domestic violence were shuffled under the rug. In the 1970s, ordinary women first took up the reins of activism for those who suffered in violence. Just like thirty years ago, the energy and the change will come from women on college campuses standing up and saying they will tolerate this no longer. I will continue to work with my colleagues and Connecticut's colleges and universities to ensure this conversation is one day a relic of history."
One in five women is sexually assaulted while in college. Most often, it happens her freshman or sophomore year. In the great majority of cases, it’s by someone she knows – and also most often, she does not report what happened. And though fewer, men, too, are victimized.
