BERKELEY (CBS SF) — Police are investigating another sex assault on the University of California, Berkeley campus.
UC police issued a campus crime alert on Wednesday and are asking any witnesses to come forward.
When Delaney Robinson first entered the University of North Carolina as a freshman a little over a year ago, she was looking forward to making new friends and having new experiences. I cooperated with law enforcement and the Title IX office.
However, she said during a press conference on Tuesday, "that all changed in February when I was assaulted and raped on campus."In her powerful testimony, she said that she had been assaulted by Allen Artis, a player on the UNC football team. But six months later, the university has done nothing."In other words, Robinson did everything that victim-blaming culture dictates that a woman "should" do after being sexually assaulted: Gather evidence, speak up right away, and work with the police.
And rather than receiving support and concern from her university, she has only been further traumatised — despite the fact that she did everything "right.""I did everything a rape victim is supposed to do," she said. Yet, instead of taking action, the UNC Department of Public Safety subjected her to a multitude of "humiliating and accusatory" questions, she said, and treated her "like a suspect.""What was I wearing?
The way UNC reacted to her situation also highlights exactly what needs to change if we're going to bring survivors justice: the awful ways we treat survivors of sexual assault and abuse, even when they do everything they're "supposed " to do.
Robinson's case is just one of many instances of campus sexual assault and points to the ineffective means by which universities sometimes choose to handle (or, more aptly, handle) those cases.
Robinson's attorney, Denise Branch, told ABC 11 News that the university has been waiting on results from Robinson's blood alcohol levels to decide how to proceed — which, in addition to contributing grossly to victim-blaming culture, is also a violation of Title IX."I'm taking this public stand, not for me, but for the other students on campus who are not protected, despite what the university says," Robinson said in her statement at the press conference.
Under Title IX, which protects people from sex discrimination, universities are given 90 days to decide on a sexual assault case — an allotment that UNC has violated by failing to take action despite wrapping its investigation three months ago, as Buzz Feed reported.
I did not deserve to be raped."Meanwhile, she said, Artis was told by the DPS "not sweat it" and to "just keep on living your life and playing football." According to ABC 11 News, Artis has been suspended from the football team, but remains on campus.
"Robinson also rightfully asserts that, though she had been drinking that night, her drunkenness "does not give anyone the right to violate me.
