In a recent cover story in Time.com on The Sexual Assault Crisis on American Campuses they labeled America’s campuses as hazardous places.
The truth is, for young women, particularly those who are 18 or 19 years old, just beginning their college experience, America’s campuses are hazardous places. Recent research shows that 1 in 5 women is the victim of an attempted or completed sexual assault during college.
That shocking number has students, parents and politicians questioning the way schools protect students and adjudicate the cases of sexual assault.
Many people are wondering why so few of these sexual assaults are even reported. It has been estimated that as few as one out of every 10 of these crimes is ever reported.
One of the contributing factors to this lack of reporting is the fact that the young women who were the victims have been drunk or high on drugs. That means they couldn’t remember what happened or give enough accurate details to make the report credible.
One thing is for sure that the best way young women can protect themselves anywhere but especially in a college environment is with a pepper spray that’s on a keychain.
This Mace brand PepperGard contains 20 half second shots of a stream spray pattern up to 12 feet away. It has the Mace contour grip and built-in keychain with the fliptop safety cap to prevent accidental firing. The UV dye that’s included in the spray aids in attacker identification.
