Alcohol and Sexual Assault

Sexual Assault

It's late. You've had a few. Maybe a few too many. So has this really nice guy, but you say yes when he offers to walk you home to make sure you get there safely. At your front door he starts coming on a little strong. He wants in and won't take no for an answer. All of a sudden, you find yourself stuck in a bad situation.


Research indicates that students at schools with high levels of binge drinking are more likely to report being hit, pushed, sexually assaulted, or experiencing unwanted sexual advances by other students who had been drinking.
