Stopping Campus Sexual Assault

The current system for handling campus sexual assault cases, based on a 2011 Department of Education mandate, is broken. SAVE has compiled a variety of resources and solutions, including:

Inclusive VAWA

The 2013 reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act features a new Inclusion Mandate that bans discrimination on the basis of “race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.”

In response, SAVE has established the Inclusive-VAWA Resource Center.


Turning Everything into Rape?

I Said NoSAVE is concerned about the current trend to expand definitions of sexual assault:

  1. The American Law Institute is considering a new Model Penal Code that would vastly expand the scope of criminal sexual conduct.
  2. Many universities have revised their Sexual Assault policies so even an innocent hug can be construed as sexual assault.
  3. Affirmative consent policies serve to outlaw 99% of all sex.
  4. Activists use sweeping terms like “rape stare” and “rape culture.”

Overly broad definitions of rape serve to remove the presumption of innocence for the accused. And if everything is rape, then nothing is rape. More information HERE.

Cathy Young: Feminists want us to define these ugly sexual encounters as rape. Don’t let them.

Consent is Sexy4Affirmative Consent policies don’t do anything to deter forcible sexual assault, and classify virtually all sexual encounters as rape. Here’s why.
