Here is a deeply troubling statistic: 1 in 5 women and 1 in 16 men are sexually assaulted in college.
At the White House earlier today, President Obama urged all Americans to stand up against sexual assault on college and university campuses. Microsoft is pleased to be a partner in the effort of “It’s On Us,” a private-public partnership formed in response to this call to action between the Center for American Progress and a number of companies to help create a culture where sexual violence is unaccepted and survivors are supported.
In support of this movement, we have also worked to make it easier for people to find information about sexual assault prevention and resources when they do those searches on Bing. One of those efforts is to help victims of sexual assault find resources, such as highlighting RAINN’s National Sexual Assault Hotline.
We look forward to partnering with the administration, concerned businesses, universities, and the American public to help put an end to sexual assault.
It’s on all of us to stop sexual assault.
