Lack of coverage of an important sexual assault speaker on campus

by Ami Wazlawik — University student

I was disappointed to see absolutely no coverage by the Minnesota Daily of an event held on campus Monday night. Dr. Keith Edwards, a nationally renowned speaker on the issue of menâÄôs involvement in ending sexual violence, was on campus educating students about the dynamics of sexual assault and how we can all work to change a culture that largely condones sexual violence.

A large number of organizations sponsored the event, and about 2,000 students attended. Given the DailyâÄôs coverage of the events that followed three sexual assaults last fall, itâÄôs surprising that no one seemed interested in covering this event.

People on campus are interested in learning about sexual assault and want to put an end to it on our campus. I think that deserves some media attention.
