On the Failure of Columbia's Sexual Assault Policy


I am generally not one to promote causes on a personal venue, but this issue is a serious one that is not restricted to Columbia University. Processes for handling cases of sexual assault are only beginning to reach functioning levels, and it is through public awareness and outcry that we can amend the gross trend of victim-blaming and outright negligence that characterizes most of the policies in institutions across the nation. The horrifyingly high statistics need to be reported correctly, the perpetrators dealt with to the fullest extent of the law, and the victims treated as victims, not as inconveniences or threats to an institution's reputation. Let us spread the word and demand justice.
