Why sex assault survivors are fuming over DeVos proposal

Other groups echoed those concerns. “The #MeToo movement has changed the country and made clear that we need new institutional accountability to prevent and address sexual harassment and assault,” Fatima Goss Graves, president and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center, said in a statement. “The reports today indicate that Secretary DeVos and the Trump Administration, badly misreading the national mood, plan instead to give schools new leeway to dismiss the complaints of student survivors. Be clear: a movement will rise up to fight these attacks on the rights of students, the likes of which Secretary DeVos has not yet seen. She should reconsider whether she wants to go down this path.”
