4:35pm ET - Recently the nation has been abuzz with talk of the problem of rape on college campus’, and the media has bombarded us with the notion that universities and colleges are hotbeds of sexual violence.  So much so that many parents now fear that sending their teenagers to school is equivalent to shipping them off to be sexually victimized.  However according to Callie Marie Rennison, the co-director of the Criminology and Criminal Justice Research Initiative at the University of Colorado Denver’s School of Public Affairs, young women who don’t go to college are far more likely to be raped then their college bound peers.  Callie joins us today to discuss the problems that disadvantaged women face when it comes to sexual violence, which she wrote about for The New York Times.
