I'm sorry, but women shouldn't need to take self defense classes to protect themselves from rape #MissUSA

In other hand.. rape culture DO exist
Hundreds of female Cambridge students have been raped or sexually assaulted, says shock survey, but almost none went to police
As many as 8.4 per cent of women said they were attempted assault victims
Findings based on responses from more than 2,000 Cambridge students
Vast majority - 88 per cent - did not report attacks, and only two told police
More than one in thirteen women at Cambridge University has been sexually assaulted, a shocking new survey has found.
According to the study, women at the prestigious institution are routinely groped, molested and even raped - but overwhelmingly do not even report the attacks.
The survey, which received over 2,000 responses, revealed that the majority of sexual assaults happen inside the university's historic colleges, where students typically live for the majority of their studies.
Of the women who responded to the online survey, 8.4 per cent said that they had experienced attempts to seriously sexually assault them.
However, the vast majority - 88 per cent - of victims did not report the assault, and only two students involved the police, with most contacting university staff instead.
An anonymous rape victim who answered the survey said she did not report her attacker because she was so certain nothing would come of it.
She said: 'I have no reason to believe that my report will be taken seriously, be investigated or result in a conviction. On the contrary I have every reason to believe that he would be acquitted.'
1 in 6 female undergrads sexually assaulted on MIT campus, survey finds
In an unprecedented, broad-based survey, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology polled students about their attitudes and experiences with sexual assault on campus. One in six female undergraduate students who responded to the survey say they’ve experienced sexual assault on the Cambridge, Mass. campus, although fewer than 5 percent reported the experience to authorities or to the school.
MIT released its comprehensive survey results yesterday. The poll is the first of its kind for the MIT community, and it goes beyond the scope of similar studies at other colleges and universities. Nearly 11,000 undergraduate and graduate students were surveyed last spring, and 35 percent responded.
