Annotated Bibliography on Sexual Assault on College Campuses
Adams, Aileen, and Gail Abarbanel. Sexual Assault on Campus: What Colleges Can Do. Santa
Monica, CA: Rape Treatment Center, Santa Monica Hospital Medical Center, 1988. Print.
This book is about victims of college campus rape and what researchers learned from the
victims. It states that in the spring of 1987 there was a dramatic increase in the number of
rape victims on colleges campuses who were trying to find help and support. It gives
different measures college could take in order to make their schools safe for their
students. This is important to my report because it shows the process by which victims of
rape go through in order to heal.
"EPublications." Sexual Assault. N.p., n.d. Web. 28 Oct. 2016.
This website states that sexual assault is any type of forced or coerced sexual contact or
behavior that happens without consent. The Department of Justice defines rape the
penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or
oral penetration by a sex organ. It also states what giving consent means and the
conditions you must be in to give consent. It notes what sexual coercion is, which is
social or emotional pressure to force someone into sexual activity that they do not want
or agree to do. This website is important to my report because it explains the definition of
sexual assault.

reports of sexual assault from 2000-03 and found a 2.1% rate of false reports. It also

This magazine article reports cases of sexual assault. It explains why the system of
sexual assault is so broken. It also informs us about the justice administrations actions to
prevent them. It notes that one of five college students will be a victim of rape or
attempted rape. Also it states that the Center for Public Integrity interviewed 33 victims,
and more than half reported that their alleged attacker only received academic penalties
or no punishment at all. This article is important in my report because it is explaining
why sexual assault is becoming so common on college campuses.

This journal article is about how females from many different colleges and universities
have experienced unwanted sexual assault. It states about 23% of female college students
said that they had experienced some form of unwanted sexual assault. It also explains
why it is difficult for some women to come forward. It states that most women do not
come forward because they felt it was not serious enough or they were embarrassed,
ashamed, or thought it would emotionally difficult. This journal article is needed for my
report because it explains statistics and surveys from some of the most known colleges
and universities in the Unites States.
