Last July 8, Sabrina Rubin Erdely , a writer for Rolling Stone , telephoned Emily Renda, a rape survivor working on sexual assault issues as a staff member at the University of Virginia. Erdely said she was searching for a single, emblematic college rape case that would show “what it’s like to be on campus now where not only is rape so prevalent but also that there’s this pervasive culture of sexual harassment/rape culture,”... Renda told Erdely that many assaults take place during parties where “the goal is to get everyone blackout drunk. “One girl I worked with closely alleged she was gang-raped in the fall, before rush, and the men who perpetrated it were young guys who were not yet members of the fraternity, and she remembers one of them saying to another ‘C’mon man, don’t you...
