Survey Finds Alarming Rate of Sexual Assault on Australian College Campuses

A report by the National Union of Students in Australia offers disturbing statistics on sexual assault on college campuses in the country. The survey found that two out of every three women had “an unwanted sexual experience” while enrolled in college. One in six women who responded to the survey said they had been raped in college and another 12 percent said that they had fended off an attempted rape.

The survey found that one third of women on Australian college campuses had been touched or groped by male offenders and 17 percent reported that they had been stalked by men on campus.

Nearly one quarter of the women who had been victimized reported that the violence was perpetrated by their intimate partner.
