Fatima Goss Graves, president of the National Women’s Law Center, said that in Thursday’s meeting she called on DeVos “to show leadership in rejecting…outdated ideas and myths about rape,” including the prevalence of false accusations. A 2015 study published in the journal Violence Against Women found that false accusations made up 2% to 10% of sexual assault claims.
