Feminists Trot Out Ludicrous 1-In-4 Rape Statistic To Oppose Due Process On Campus

Article here. Excerpt:

'In response to the U.S. Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s announcement on Thursday that the federal government will stop pressuring colleges to trample on the civil rights of students accused of rape, a feminist advocacy organization has trotted out the thoroughly discredited claim that “one in four women” are “raped on campus.”

The feminist group is UltraViolet.

“With one in four women sexually assaulted while in college, we are facing a national rape epidemic on our campuses, and today’s announcement makes clear that Betsy DeVos and Donald Trump are more concerned with protecting perpetrators than the survivors they sexual assaulted,” said UltraViolet co-founder Nita Chaudhary in a statement sent to The Daily Caller on Thursday.

Chaudhary also flatly dismissed the notion that people accused of serious crimes should receive due process or fair treatment in campus disciplinary hearings that could lead to their expulsion.

“There are no two sides when it comes to rape. Period,” she declared. “The idea that we need to focus more on the rights of the accused would be laughable if it weren’t so terrifying and outright dangerous.”'
