I found this excerpt to be jarring:
"Earlier this year, the results of a 5-year-old survey of Princeton University students were leaked, revealing 1-in-6 female undergraduates experienced 'non-consensual vaginal penetration.' That same year, 2008, only 20 forcible sex offenses were reported at the university of roughly 7,800 students, or roughly 1 in 195."
The story is about the Clery Act, the law which requires colleges and universities to disclose reported sexual assaults on campus. The alarming discrepancy between Princeton's in-house numbers and those collected under the Clery Act imply that there is much underreporting.
