We recently worked with The Telegraph to investigate experiences of female sexual assault in UK universities.
We found that 1/3 of female students experience sexual assault at uni. Although most assaults were ‘minor’ like groping, this statistic puts into perspective how widespread the issue of unwanted sexual attention is.
A whopping 97% did not report sexual assault to their university and 44% of females believed their unis would do nothing in response. In fact, over one third of students worried about being a victim of sexual assault from other students.

Have your say: Could universities be doing more to campaign against inappropriate behaviour? Do you think that groping should be classified as sexual assault? Or is it ‘just a bit of lad banter’, which shouldn’t be taken seriously? Comment below, anonymously if you wish!
