One in 10 female students at the University of Oregon say they have been raped in college, The Oregonian reports. That is just one statistic from a new study conducted by a psychology professor at the university. Among the other findings, drawn from the preliminary results:
- Of the 982 respondents to a survey, 35 percent of the female students said they had had at least one sexual encounter without giving consent. Among men, that number was 14 percent.
- Among those who reported having nonconsensual sex, 73 percent said they knew the perpetrator.
- Just one in seven victims of rape said they had reported the crime to the university’s administration.
