The Return of the Sex Wars

The Return of the Sex Wars

September 11, 2015

Legal Momentum Board Vice Chair, Stanford Professor of Law Deborah L. Rhode, is quoted in this interesting piece on the decades-old intellectual debate simmering beneath the current conversation over sexual assault on campus.

‘‘Schools have been reluctant to incorporate issues of alcohol abuse in rape-prevention programs out of concern that victims will be blamed, and blame themselves, for assault,’’ writes the Stanford law professor Deborah Rhode, who has advocated women’s advancement in the legal profession throughout her career, in a forthcoming article in The U.C.L.A. Women’s Law Journal. ‘‘That needs to change. Warning women that intoxication increases their risk of sexual assault does not imply that they are responsible for it.’’
