The Hunting Ground
Stand against sexual assault
Thesis and Purpose
The purpose of The Hunting Ground is to inform the audience about sexual assault on campuses.
Through the elements of personal interviews, pathos, and statistics The Hunting Ground effectively gets its point across to the audience which is to inform them of csmpus rape and not enough being done.
The girls that were raped by a boy and went to the dean. The dean told her to ignore it so the schools reputation wouldn't be ruined. No charges were filed against the boy. The boy was raped but didn't want to come forward because it was embarrassing.
The people that were raped had to call their parents and tell them. There were videos in the beginning with people getting accepted into their dream college. They also used the graduation song to make people emotional.
Out of 155 reports of sexual assault on campuses only 3 people get expelled. 88% of women on campuses do not report sexual assault because they're scared and nothing will get done about it. More than 16% of college women are sexual assaulted while in school.
