Why Campus Sexual Assaults Have Become an Epidemic

Brock Turner is not an isolated incident; why is campus sexual assault happening all over the country?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Matt Vassar continues coverage of the sexual assault epidemic on college campuses across America. Matt covers the trauma of sexual assault survivors, the retaliation they face, and how difficult it is for justice to be served. He also covers the disproportionate number of sexual assaults reported against college athletes, and explores the allegations against athletes from high-profile football and basketball programs across the country. Finally, he wonders why we as a society consistently take the side of the powerful athlete over the powerless victim, especially during times when she needs our help the most.
