Around noon today, campus activists papered the campus with flyers. They were on the steps of Olin, on the wall in front of PAC, on the railings in front of Zelnick Pavilion, and on the bulletin boards of Usdan.
Here they are on the steps of Olin:
Here they are on the boards in Usdan:
In case the photos are hard to read, here is what the posters say:
- 2-8% of rape accusations are false. Only 50% of alleged rapists are found guilty at Wesleyan. Demand a just adjudication system. Demand a safe Wesleyan.
- In the next two weeks, 100 Wesleyan frosh will experience sexual assault or harassment. Demand effective prevention. Demand a safe Wesleyan. (That information comes from a self-reported statistic gathered through the AlchoholEdu survey, previously covered here.)
- 2009–2012: 9 Wesleyan students were found responsible for sexual assault. 0 expelled. Demand just sanctions. Demand a safe Wesleyan. (That information comes from a recent Huffington Post article).
Then again, you may not have seen them. The posters were taken down promptly from each location soon after they were posted.
