It's Sexual Assault Awareness Month and for the first time since President Obama took office, I'm celebrating his administration for FINALLY doing something about violence against women. After a whole lot of nothing for three years, Vice President Biden went to the University of New Hampshire last week to announce a new "advisory" under Title IX, the federal law that prohibits gender discrimination, including sexual assault, in education. The advisory is meant to compel university officials to do a better job responding to sex crimes on campus – an important concern given that one in five students is victimized while in college....
...Here are a few additional points about Title IX – made clear in the new advisory:
1. A single act of sexual assault is enough to constitute actionable "sexual harassment" under Title IX.
3. The rights accorded accused students must also be given to victims. A school's disciplinary system is NOT akin to a criminal prosecution. The victim and the accused stand on equal footing and are entitled to equal rights at every stage of the process.
