Colleges and universities could be held more accountable to rape victims under legislation introduced Wednesday by a bipartisan group of U.S. Senators led by New York's Kirsten Gillibrand.
"My office has heard from many survivors about campus sexual assaults in America. These young women have been demanding that Congress help stop the endless wave of campus sexual assaults, and I share their outrage." New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat, charges America is going through an "epidemic of campus sexual assault."
