"Me too. It happened to me too." More than one in five women and 5 percent of men are sexually assaulted while at college. Some survivors are coming forward; others are not. In We Believe You, students from every kind of college and university—large and small, public and private, highly selective and less so—share experiences of trauma, healing, and everyday activism, representing a diversity of races, economic and family backgrounds, gender identities, immigration statuses, interests, capacities, and loves. Theirs is a bold, irrefutable sampling of voices and stories that should speak to all.

The debate over sexual violence on campus is reaching fever pitch, from headlines about out–of-control fraternities, to the ”mattress protests” by female students at Columbia University and other colleges. The Hunting Ground, the new documentary by award-winning filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering, has taken this debate to a new level, becoming a galvanizing catalyst for discussion at the hundreds of campuses where the documentary is being screened each month. The film has sparked calls for legislation by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo of New York and other prominent public figures and sparked a backlash from university administrators, fraternities, and conservative groups. Now, in a new companion volume to the film, all those concerned about the “rape culture” on campus will be offered an inside perspective on the controversy, as well as reactions to the film from a range of leading writers and guidance on how to learn more and get active. As in the film, it’s the gripping personal stories told by female students—and the obstinate refusal of college administrators and law enforcement authorities to recognize the severity of the problem—that will rivet readers.

Campus Sexual Assault

A 2014 report issued by the White House Council on Women and Girls included the alarming statistic that one in five female college students in the United States experience some form of campus sexual assault. Despite more than fifty years of anti-rape activism and over two decades of federal legislation regarding campus sexual violence, sexual assault on American college and university campuses remains prevalent, under-reported, and poorly understood. A principle reason for this lack of understanding is that the voices of women who have experienced campus sexual assault have been largely absent from academic discourse about the issue. In Campus Sexual Assault, Lauren J. Germain focuses attention on the post–sexual assault experiences of twenty-six college women. She reframes conversations about sexual violence and student agency on American college campuses by drawing insight directly from the stories of how survivors responded individually to attacks, as well as how and why peers, family members, and school, medical, and civil authorities were (or were not) engaged in addressing the crimes. Germain weaves together women’s narratives to show the women not as victims per se, but as individuals with the power to overcome these traumatic experiences. Aimed at students, parents, faculty members, university leaders, service providers, and lawmakers, Campus Sexual Assault seeks to put an end to the silence around sexual trauma by giving voice to those closest to it and providing tools for others to hear with—and to act on.

Every seven minutes, someone in America commits a rape. And whether that's a football star, beloved celebrity, elected official, member of the clergy, or just an average Joe (or Joanna), there's probably a community eager to make excuses for that person. In Asking for It, Kate Harding combines in-depth research with an in-your-face voice to make the case that twenty-first-century America supports rapists more effectively than it supports victims. Drawing on real-world examples of what feminists call "rape culture"--from politicos' revealing gaffes to institutional failures in higher education and the military--Harding offers ideas and suggestions for how we, as a society, can take sexual violence much more seriously without compromising the rights of the accused.

MILLENNIAL SEX is a volume of short stories that explore issues of consent, desire, and millennial sexuality. This volume explores key themes of Consent, Trust, Fetishization, Trauma, Intimacy, and Respect. MILLENNIAL SEX is a vivid, gripping exploration of sexuality today. At times heartbreaking, at times cynical, at times enchantingly hopeful, and always gloriously erotic, this series takes us into the minds and experiences of thirteen very different narrators as they each develop from a state of sexual dissatisfaction or naïveté to sexual maturity through several key sexual experiences. The varied and unique intimate moments they each create for themselves allow each character to discover a partner who in turn helps them understand their own desires and sense of self. We meet and experience MILLENNIAL SEX through these narrators, who are as varied in their identities and sexual interests as in their perceptions of the world they live in, and we discover more and more about each character as the series unfolds, both through their own perceptions, and through the eyes of their partner. In the first volume in the trilogy, I've Never Done This Before, we try something new with each of our first five narrators- whether it's losing their virginity, trying something taboo, or engaging in digital cruising- each of these new experiences changes each person's perceptions of their self and their sexuality. Too often the moments that shape who we are exist in the unspoken shadows, in the quiet space of our inner being, unnoticed and unresolved. These are the moments we explore through the perspectives of our narrators, through their hopes and fantasies, traumas and desires; through things they've never done before. Experience the erotic and intimate moments of a generation with MILLENNIAL SEX. In the first story, we meet Erin, a young woman who is ready to taste what college has to offer during her visit to campus, where she meets Quinn, a young man who eroticizes the sexual dynamics of domination and submission he sees in internet pornography. Erin and Quinn consummate a matter-of-fact attraction with surprising maturity and open communication about safe words and the nature of consent. Next, we follow J, a college sophomore and masculine black lesbian as she pursues Cata, a gorgeous freshman who is her lab partner (and the girl of her dreams). She happens to be what Cata is looking for as well, and a sensual and deeply intimate first sexual experience celebrating the awakening of female sexuality unfolds between them. The next story is about Brett, a professional gay man who turns to soliciting casual sex on a hookup app for the first time to regain his sense of power after the conclusion of a long relationship with a powerful closeted politician. He meets Tom, a mature Silicon Valley techno-futurist executive who challenges his understanding of power, sex, and even death as the two enact a problematized, self-aware sexual scene of racialized fetishization and domination. Our fourth story is told by Jaime, a perfectionist high school senior and virgin seeking to escape the constraints of her judgmental parents through an ongoing hook up buddy relationship with classmate Ian. Ian rapes Jaime, sexually traumatizing her and leaving her with even more questions about her own sexuality and desire. This piece is graphic and disturbing, and we choose to include it as an unflinching commentary on the pervasive sexual violence experienced by far too many. The final short in I've Never Done this Before is narrated by Michael, a Taiwanese American grad student at a small liberal arts college in the Midwest. Michael has secured his intellectual hero, renowned philosopher Dr. Miriam Lenard, as the faculty advisor to his research, and the charmingly intimate intellectual relationship between the two develops in ways that cause both of them to rethink their understandings of gender, desire, sex, and betrayal.

A personal and moral inquiry into the crime we do our best to ignore: the rape of adult men When Raymond M. Douglas was an eighteen-year-old living in Europe, he was brutally raped by a Catholic priest. He eventually moved to the United States and became a highly regarded historian, writing with great care about the violent expulsion of Germans from Eastern Europe after the Second World War, and parsing the complicated moral questions of these actions. But until now, Douglas has been silent about his own experience of trauma. In On Being Raped, Douglas recounts this painful event and his later attempts to seek help to lay bare the physical and psychological trauma of a crime we still don’t openly discuss: the rape of adult men by men. With eloquence and passion, he examines the requirements society implicitly places upon men who are victims of rape, examines the reasons for our resounding silence around this issue, and reveals how alarmingly prevalent this kind of sexual violence truly is. An insightful and sensitive analysis of a type of bodily violation that we either joke about or ignore, On Being Raped promises to open an important dialogue about male rape and what needs to be done to provide adequate services and support for victims. “But before that can happen,” writes Douglas, “men who have been raped will have to come out of the shadows...A start has to be made somewhere. This is my attempt at one.”

The first ten lies they tell you in high school. "Speak up for yourself--we want to know what you have to say." From the first moment of her freshman year at Merryweather High, Melinda knows this is a big fat lie, part of the nonsense of high school. She is friendless, outcast, because she busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, so now nobody will talk to her, let alone listen to her. As time passes, she becomes increasingly isolated and practically stops talking altogether. Only her art class offers any solace, and it is through her work on an art project that she is finally able to face what really happened at that terrible party: she was raped by an upperclassman, a guy who still attends Merryweather and is still a threat to her. Her healing process has just begun when she has another violent encounter with him. But this time Melinda fights back, refuses to be silent, and thereby achieves a measure of vindication. In Laurie Halse Anderson's powerful novel, an utterly believable heroine with a bitterly ironic voice delivers a blow to the hypocritical world of high school. She speaks for many a disenfranchised teenager while demonstrating the importance of speaking up for oneself. Speak was a 1999 National Book Award Finalist for Young People's Literature.
