From VOA Learning English, this is the Education Report. The first year of college is usually a time to learn and have fun. Many young people enjoy the freedom of living away from home for the first time. But young women in the United States are also at high risk of experiencing a sex crime. The U.S. Justice Department reports that American women age 18 to 24 had the highest rate of sexual assault. Among college women, nine out of 10 knew the person who sexually assaulted them. In Canada, three universities recently ran a program to train female students to avoid sexual assault while in college. The program involved women in their first year at the schools. The students spent 12 hours learning how to judge risks, deal with emotions, and use self-defense. The group that received the 12 hours of training saw an almost 50 percent drop in risk of rape, compared to another group that received much less training and information. In the U.S., Harvard, Rutgers and several other universities have also developed “bystander training.” The training helps students, both men and women, decide when it is safe to personally intervene and when to call the police. Last year, President Barack Obama established a task force on sexual violence at universities. The investigative group’s report advised universities to take several measures. One includes methods for researching the sex crime “climate” of the university. Other measures include improving ways for reporting crimes, and prevention programs. The task force started a web site called not alone. It gives schools and students information on how to react to and prevent sexual assault.
