"Sexual, racial, gender violence and other forms of discrimination and violence in a culture cannot be eliminated without changing culture."
“We have to start looking at the world through women’s eyes’ how are human rights, peace and development defined from the perspective of the lives of women? It’s also important to look at the world from the perspective of the lives of diverse women, because there is not single women’s view, any more than there is a single men’s view.”

Rape and sexual assault are serious crimes with devastating consequences for victims. Rapists and sex offenders should be treated as the criminals they are.

Because my daughters and others should be able to experience college without fear of sexual VIOLENCE from their peers. Because it is unthinkable that any administrator at a college or university would think writing an essay is an appropriate consequence of perpetrating an act of sexual ASSAULT.

Salovey: "In too many cases, excessive alcohol consumption blurs memory." - Wrong. Not an excuse for slaps on the wrist.

Goldberg: “If alcohol is involved, there isn’t consent.” - Correct

All these cases should be reported to the New Haven Police, not the Yale police.

Every victim needs to share and expose institutions that fail to address such unacceptable behavior against young ladies at all levels. Vilma Colom

Sexual assault without affirmative consent is a state crime, and the school must follow the requirements of Title IX. More women are raped in college than women of the same age who are not in college. The rate of sexual assault is the same for women in college as it is in the military.

As an alumnus of Yale (ES 1998), I am appalled at the current policy on sexual misconduct. I encourage the wise administration to re-evaluate the language of this policy.
