Host Frank Stasio talks to Andrea Pino, sexual assault survivor and co-founder of End Rape on Campus., on the Tuesday, September 30th, episode of The State of Things, "Examining Sexual Assault On Campus: Policy, Prevention & Culture"
In her interview, Andrea addresses common myths with universities' treatment of sexual assault, as well as specifics about her experience at The University of North Carolina, and her thoughts on the new affirmative consent bill in California.
"I realized that UNC was not following the law," she said, recounting that "assailants weren't expelled and the definition of consent was not explained to students."
Regrading the Bill: "Sex and rape are not the same thing ... this bill is a step in the right direction to help clarify that. This bill sends a strong warning to schools in California that not addressing consent can lead to serious consequences, and I hope that similar efforts will follow in North Carolina."
