One in four women will be sexually assaulted before they graduate college, and few perpetrators will ever spend a day in jail. The lack of action on this epidemic represents an outrageous legal and moral failure that must end. My bill, the first of its kind in Maryland, would create an independent victim advocacy office on every college in Maryland.
Additionally, it would improve access to information on these heinous assaults, and disincentivize colleges from protecting perpetrators by requiring them to publicly report all incidences of sexual assault on their campuses. They will also need to provide services for individuals harmed by these assaults and have students take surveys to gather data on how to further combat assault.
