Kait Boyle: Labeling and Reporting Rape on College Campuses:
Interactional, Institutional Barriers and Feminist Solutions

This presentation will cover a range of issues related to the ways in which college students do and do not label sexual victimization "rape" and report to law enforcement. For instance, women are less likely to label experiences "rape" and report the crime when they do not match cultural stereotypes about violent stranger rape; a relationship with the perpetrator and fear of retaliation also deter reporting. I discuss a variety of social, cultural, and legal factors that serve as barriers to seeking justice and how feminist mobilization and policy--like Take Back the Night and the Campus SaVE Act--aim to ameliorate these issues.
