Taking Action

Marcia J. Weiss encourages NA’AMAT USA members to use their voice to promote social change.

In the current issue of NA’AMAT WOMAN, Marcia J. Weiss, J.D., NA’AMAT USA’s vice president of program and education, writes about the issue of campus sexual assault. She cites some alarming statistics: nearly 1 in 5 women are victims of sexual assault during their college years, yet less than 5 percent of rapes and attempted rapes are reported either to college authorities or law enforcement.
Rape on campus is not a new problem, but it has recently been gaining more attention because courageous young women are increasingly speaking out. “In my day, you didn’t do anything like that,” says Weiss. “No one talked about it.”
