Here's another story about how state legislators in Connecticut are trying to curtail campus sexual assaults. You can read the whole story HERE.
The bill requires institutions to permit anonymous reporting of assaults, promote bystander intervention, establish resource teams to review policies and create links with local crisis centers.
There's a lot of frustration on college campuses about what appears to be the lack of support from state legislators on this issue. "There is a lot more that needs to be done, but it needs to be done by faculty, students and staff together. Until we change that culture, until we have those young men understand that sexual assault and date rape is unacceptable, we'll have young women going through that suffering."
"The new legislation was initiated in response to a lawsuit filed on behalf of a number of female students (both current and former) who allege that they were raped and/or sexually assaulted, and that they felt that the university violated their rights."
Legislators agree that it is seriously in charge problem in that something has to be done. There are way too many sexual assaults. This bill creates an impact on a person who commits that sexual assault.
How To Defend Yourself Against A Sexual Assault
The best way to defend yourself against the sexual assault on campus or anywhere for that matter is with a self-defense product such as a pepper spray or stun gun. We specifically recommend a product that's on a keychain because that way it's more likely to be with you wherever you go.
