So, the blog will be quiet over the next few days while we take some time off for the holiday, but I will leave you with some reading material! Also, if you’re in NYC and want to come hang out and help us out for a couple hour on Monday night, RSVP for the “work party” at our office! And of course, if you really want to get to know SAFER, consider applying for our Board….
Where Is Your Line has a hard-to-read (triggering!) but very striking story about frat culture (or at least one particular frat culture) and sexual violence. Written by a frat member, in fact.
A lot of people have written about the St. Mary’s College student who killed herself shortly after accusing a Notre Dame football player of sexual assault (see Jezebel and Care2 for more). An insanely sad story. Also sad is that no one at Notre Dame or St Mary’s seems to be talking about rape.
Feminist Students United! at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill call out a gross sign put up by the hockey team as being representative of rape culture and fight back with their own awesome sign. Unsurprisingly, the commenters on their blog just think they don’t have any sense of humor. We haven’t heard that before…
The awesome folks at Prevention Innovations tackle the serious issue of how behavior that could be considered stalking can become normalized on college campuses, particularly cyberstalking.
A University of Minnesota Student is waging a one-woman fight to get her community to take groping seriously and improve the reporting process at the U of M.
Guess what? Schools have inaccurate Clery statistics!
The Loyola Maroon addresses the victim-blaming comments (online, of course) on their story about a student arrested for rape.
Finally, a lot of folks are talking about this week’s Law and Order SVU episode, which apparently dealt with campus rape! I haven’t gotten a chance to catch up with it yet. Anyone else see it? Thoughts??
