UT's Daily Beacon spotlights sexual violence on campus

Roughly 18 months ago, a female student at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville was raped at a party by two fellow students.

She remembers the aftermath of the ordeal as surreal, filled with accusations and victim-blaming:

"UT was slowly becoming a nightmare. People would go on to tell me that the rape was my fault, that I was asking for it, that I'm lucky anyone wanted to hook up with me, that I was a slut and that I deserved what I got. But I wanted to own my story."
