In a press release, Shaunna Thomas, co-founder of Ultra Violet, said, “Whether the rapist is a star athlete or an honors students — we can no longer allow rape on college campuses to continue to be swept under the rug, and have the true costs of sexual assault ignored. It’s time for universities across America to protect the right of women to get an education without risking rape and the subsequent backlash that too many experience when they confront their rapist.”
