Mass. Senate OKs bill to lift 'veil of secrecy' on campus sex assaults
Pointing to the ongoing national conversation about sexual harassment, state senators on Thursday passed a bill aimed at ensuring college students have a place to turn on campus if they've been sexually assaulted, and at preventing such violence in the first place. Sen. Michael Moore of Millbury, the co-chairman of Higher Education Committee and the bill's sponsor, called it "unacceptable" that 23 percent of female undergraduates reported experiencing non-consensual sexual contact in a 2015 survey by the Association of American Universities, but between 72 percent and 95 percent of those incidents went unreported.
