A shocking statistic from the University of South Florida on sexual assaults: one in four women have been or will be raped during her collegiate career.
The USF Center for Victim Advocacy and Violence Prevention is fighting to change that number, and now they have help.
The White House released a report late Monday highlighting advocacy and prevention of sexual assaults on college campuses.
Out of this report, students will soon see some changes on campuses across the U.S., like systematic surveys, specific rules on confidentiality and bystander intervention.
"We have a program called ‘REAL’ and we can play up on things like ‘real men get consent,’ “said Nanci Newton, Director of the Center. "We cannot stop sexual violence unless men get involved, and that's a clear message from the White House."
In this effort to stop sexual assaults, the White House rolled out a new website called notalone.gov that has all kinds of information for anyone, especially students.
You'll also start seeing public service announcements at movie theaters starting in May.
