US Varsities – 23% women Sexually Assaulted This Year

The Association of American Universities on Monday released the overall results of a survey that asked students at 27 universities about their experiences with sexual assault and sexual misconduct, drawing responses from more than 150,000 students.

At average 23 percent of female undergraduates at an array of prominent universities said this year they were victims of sexual assault and misconduct according to one of the largest studies ever of college sexual violence.
Most of the undergraduate women suffered incidents involving sexual penetration or attempted penetration and the rest were victims of sexual contact through force or in situations when they were incapacitated and unable to consent. The students said sexual assault and misconduct is extremely problematic at the school.

(NOTE: This happens in the society that is accustomed to having out of wedlock sexual contact, including penetration, as a basic right whenever they wish so)

Here are key data and reactions from universities that participated in the AAU’s joint study of sexual assault this year. All schools are AAU members, except Dartmouth College.
