A new study now finds that women who went to college are far more likely to have not been sexually assaulted than their working class counterparts.

The study was conducted by the University of Michigan.

 

According to the study, risk of forced sex against women is more than two and a half times greater for women who've attended little or no college at all.

Study author and sociology professor William Axinn said that his study ended up exposing the Obama administration's Title IX regime, regime 'for the elitist and politically-motivated overcorrection it was,' according to the Weekly Standard.

According to the publication, Title IX 'is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any educational program or activity that receives federal funding.'

 

It addresses issues of sexual harassment and sexual violence for incidents that occur on and off campus, involving individuals who are and aren't students.

According to the publication, in September campus Title IX officers told the Chronicle that their colleges would remain committed to sexual-assault prevention, even though the Obama-endorsed organization was effectively over.

Axinn's study asked Americans between the ages of 15 and 44 whether they've experienced forced intercourse.

The study found that 9 per cent of the women who said they experience involuntary intercourse, say they were slightly intoxicated as they 'had been given a drink or drugs.'

 

Axinn added, “'I was disturbed that we're paying so much attention to the on-campus issue and not giving enough attention to young people who are not fortunate enough to be enrolled in college.”

His findings did underline the fact that women who never attended college are at a much greater risk of being raped.
