Campus rape statistics 'misleading,' says author of new book
Article here. Excerpt:
'The co-author of a new book about campus rape says that while the problem of sexual assault and rape on campus is real, the numbers have been inflated.
Stuart Taylor Jr., who wrote "The Campus Rape Frenzy: The Attack on Due Process at America's Universities" with KC Johnson, told CNN's Michael Smerconish that although there is a "serious rape problem on campus," the statistics are "highly misleading."
According to a large scale study by the Association of American Universities, 23% of female students have experienced some form of unwanted sexual contact while attending college.
Taylor disputes these often-cited numbers. For instance, President Obama said, while launching an awareness campaign in 2014, that one in five students will be sexually assaulted. Taylor said the figure was "absolutely false."
"Frankly I'm surprised that a man as smart as former President Obama, and as careful a politician, would say something so wildly inaccurate, something that had already been totally discredited at the time he said it," Taylor said.'
