About the Book

The fundamental purpose of this book is to inform and empower college students and their parents concerning the horrible problem of sexual harassment on campus. The ultimate objective is to prevent anyone else from being victimized.

The prestigious American Association of University Women (AAUW) published a book in 2000 entitled, "A License for Bias: Sex, Schools, and Title IX". The authors estimated that 3 out of 4 women in college are affected by sexual harassment. This represents a disgraceful national epidemic.

The book provides numerous actual examples of how female students have been ruthlessly harassed by rogue faculty sexual predators. Universities have been completely unwilling and incapable of effectively dealing with this chronic abuse of student civil rights. What they have done very well is conceal the problem from the public.

The solution to this problem must involve educating students and their parents as consumers of higher education. These consumers must be empowered to demand that their rights be aggressively protected on campus, or their tuition dollars should be spent elsewhere.

The book contains a total of ten chapters, covering a variety of critical topics, from understanding one's legal rights to evidence collection strategies. Specifically, the chapters include:

Chapter One provides extensive documentation of the widespread incidence of sexual harassment in higher education and the devasting physical, psychological, behavioral, and school-related consequences for victims.

Chapter Two offers a description of the most common characteristics of faculty sexual predators and an explanation of the manipulative tactics they typically use to victimize students.

Chapter Three presents an overview of the civil rights laws that pertain to sexual harassment in higher education, federal agency guidelines for universities, and major court cases.

Chapter Four gives an introduction to the way in which universities usually function and how this creates conditions to encourage sexual harassment of students.

Chapter Five provides concrete tools for students and their parents to use in evaluating how well a university addresses the problem of sexual harassment on campus.

Chapter Six explains a set of specific steps and rules to follow in order to become virtually "harassment-proof".

Chapter Seven presents several complaint filing options available to students who have been victimized and discusses the pro's and con's associated with each one.

Chapter Eight provides detailed recommendations about how to carefully collect the solid evidence needed to support a complaint involving sexual harassment and prove allegations in a university investigation or court trial.

Chapter Nine offers a set of suggestions to victims of sexual harassment to improve their ability to survive and successfully cope with their experience.

Chapter Ten recommends specific "on-campus" and "off-campus" strategies to force universities to deal effectively with the problem of faculty sexual harassment of students.
