Area Rape Task Force Proposed

In response to a recent increase in reported rapes in the Charlottesville area, a group of Charlottesville residents collaborates with the University to form a rape task force. The group hopes to reduce rape by 25% in the first year, spread awareness of rape, and increase reporting. The article discusses a recent change in sexual assault litigation, whereby a woman is no longer required to demonstrate that she "reasonably resisted assault" in order to press charges.
