Rape in Schools


-UConn has a well known "rape trail"
-During the sprinog of 2008 Melissa Bruen of UConn published her experience in the school paper.
- "“Another man, around 6’1,’’ approached me and said, 'You think that was an assault?' and pulled down my tube top, and grabbed my breasts. More men started to cheer. "
-Melissa Bruen-

- Another instance happened at Yale.
-"When someone attempted to rape me my freshman year, I asked my college, Yale University, for help, but instead I was basically advised to keep quiet. I shouldn't formally report the assault, I was told. Despite my clear and repeated "no", school administrators cast the whole event as a misunderstanding among friends."


Media Defends Rapists
-In March of 2013 in Ohio, a "jane doe" was raped by
two football players. Concerned for their future, the media
and school began sympathizing them.

"CNN anchor Candy Crowley and correspondent Poppy Harlow talked about how hard it was to watch the convicted rapists break into tears, given their good grades and, again, their football-playing prowess. NBC's Ron Allen spoke eloquently about the boys' "dreams" of college and, again, their football skills now wasted by their convictions. " (carpentier, Megan).
