Education Secretary Betsy DeVos Is Sued Over Sexual Assault Guidance

“The new policy discriminates against women and girls and makes it harder for them to learn in a safe environment,” said Fatima Goss Graves, the president of the National Women’s Law Center, which is representing the litigants in the suit. The plaintiffs in the suit, Equal Rights Advocates, SurvJustice and the Victim Rights Law Center, all advise or represent people who say they were sexually assaulted. The groups are being represented by Equal Rights Advocates, Democracy Forward Foundation, the National Center for Youth Law and the National Women’s Law Center.
