Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
According to the New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault, one in four college women will be victims of sexual assault during college. But, fewer than five percent of rapes of college women are reported.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, with the help of pop Goliath Lady Gaga, are on a crusade to change those statistics and stop sexual assaults on college campuses with the "2015 Opportunity Agenda," more commonly known as "Enough is Enough."
Last year, all 64 campuses of the State University of New York and the City University of New York System adopted a Uniform Sexual Assault Policy on how to deal with sexual assaults on campuses.
This policy included:
This policy currently only applies to public colleges and universities in New York. Andrew Cuomo and Lady Gaga want to pass the policy as law to require private colleges to comply as well.
Last year, California passed a similar law called "Yes means Yes" that mirrors many of the policies listed above. If New York is successful in its attempts to implement "Enough is Enough," we may see more sweeping changes nationwide.
