Can the White House put a stop to sexual assaults on campus?

by Carolyn Moynihan

The Obama Administration has announced a bold new move on climate change. Not the change that is melting icecaps but the moral meltdown that has dozens of US colleges investigating sexual violence cases under the government’s watchful eye. The rising tide of rape and sexual assault in the nation’s tertiary institutions appears to have put “campus climate” up there with Ukraine, Syria and the contraceptives mandate on the White House agenda.

The News Story – Student loans are ruining your life. Now they’re ruining the economy, too.

With graduation around the corner for the class of 2014, many students are beginning to ponder what kind of job will pay off their mountain of debt. And well they should. TIME reported last week that the average amount of student debt for the class of 2012 was $29,400.

By JUDITH E. GROSSMAN

I am a feminist. I have marched at the barricades, subscribed to Ms. magazine, and knocked on many a door in support of progressive candidates committed to women’s rights. Until a month ago, I would have expressed unqualified support for Title IX and for the Violence Against Women Act.

But that was before my son, a senior at a small liberal-arts college in New England, was charged—by an ex-girlfriend—with alleged acts of “nonconsensual sex” that supposedly occurred during the course of their relationship a few years earlier. Read more…

by Katie Hinderer

Last week as I happily went through another Valentine’s Day single – and not the I hate the celebration and want to be all anti type of single – I couldn’t help but cringe at the way this holiday has morphed over the years. Yes, it is still about the cards, candy and flowers. But it is also an excuse to be permissive, to drink too much, to hook up with strangers to drown out the pervasive loneliness. It’s overwhelming and disheartening at times. Read more…
