Student protests sexual-misconduct policy with T-shirt

By Around the Web

(Minneapolis Star-Tribune) Madeline Wilson has been raising eyebrows at St. Olaf College with her T-shirt: “Ask me how my college is protecting my rapist.”

Wilson, a 22-year-old nursing student, says she was raped by another student in a dorm last May. She blames the school for clearing him in a campus investigation that she believes was deeply flawed; and now she’s going public with her frustration.

“I didn’t want anyone else to go through the same thing,” Wilson said this week. She created a website to publicize her story.

The private college in Northfield insists that it’s doing its best to crack down on sexual assault, but in the wake of Wilson’s campaign, it is asking the federal government to review how the college handles those complaints.
