Annie E. Clark and Andrea Pino are the inspiring forces behind the Department of Education’s investigation into over 55 US colleges and universities for violations of Title IX, which bans discrimination based on gender in schools receiving federal funds. The schools are being investigated for their handling – mishandling? – of rape cases on campus.
Clark and Pino are also featured in the excellent documentary, The Hunting Ground, and founders of endcampusrape.com. If you can see the movie anywhere, go. You will think differently about colleges, campus security, fraternities, and college athletics as well. And you’ll feel inspired by what individual activists, up against powerful institutions and beliefs, can still do.
