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.

Affirmative Consent, Affirmative Confusion

Consent is Sexy4National opinion poll: 85% oppose government consent-to-sex mandates.

California Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill defining consent as ongoing “affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity.”

Affirmative Consent policies won’t do anything to deter rape. But they will create widespread confusion:

  1. Define 99% of consensual encounters as rape
  2. Make it harder for victims to be believed
  3. Infantilize women
  4. Remove the presumption of innocence
  5. Turn sex into a legalistic exercise

SOS for Campus Rape Panels

Take Rape SeriouslyThe current system for handling campus sexual assault cases is broken because it shortchanges victims and the accused. The solution is to require all sexual assault cases be handled by local criminal justice authorities.
