Cathy Young on the Stumbling Crusade Against 'Rape Culture'



December has not been a good month for the feminist crusade against the "rape culture."

The Rolling Stone account of a horrific fraternity gang rape at the University of Virginia, which many advocates saw as a possible "tipping point"—a shocking wake-up call demonstrating that even the most brutal sexual assaults on our college campuses are tacitly tolerated—has unraveled to the point where only a true believer would object to calling it a rape hoax.

Will 2015 see a pushback against the anti-"rape culture" movement on campus?, asks Cathy Young. If so, good. This is a movement that has capitalized on laudable sympathy for victims of sexual assault to promote gender warfare, misinformation and moral panic. It's time for a reassessment.
