Sex crimes on campus

An ‘America Tonight’ special series on the epidemic of sexual assault on college campuses and the efforts to curb it
Sexual violence

As many as 1 in 4 college women in the United States — almost 25 percent — will be the victim of a completed or attempted rape during her college years.

In this special broadcast and digital series, Al Jazeera America's flagship program America Tonight takes on the issue, from the culture that fuels assault and the prevalence of serial rapists on campus, to the debate over the role alcohol plays and the growing army of activists who are working to end the problem and encourage healing.
