Clinton Criticizes 'Scourge of Sexual Assault'

April 24, 2015

Hillary Clinton, in the first major speech of her presidential campaign, specifically cited the problem of sexual assault on campuses. In an address Thursday at the Women in the World conference, Clinton said that "when women of any age, whether on college campuses or military bases or even in their homes, face sexual assault, then no woman is secure. Every woman deserves to have the safety and security they need. That means we have to guarantee that our institutions respond to the continuing scourge of sexual assault."
