Fed-Up Women Swarm Kansas Frat House After Alleged Rape
More than a thousand protesters demonstrated outside of a University of Kansas fraternity house on Monday night in an outcry against sexual assault that former students say has been “regularly ignored and dismissed.”
The “No Means No Peaceful Protest” outside of the Phi Kappa Psi Greek house was fueled by allegations that a woman was drugged and raped at the frat house on Saturday night by a new undergraduate member. Local police in Lawrence told KMBC that they were investigating an alleged sexual assault near campus on Saturday night but would not confirm its location, citing efforts to protect the privacy of a potential victim.
It was the second such protest in recent weeks: About 1,000 protesters surrounded the troubled Fiji frat house at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln last month after an alleged sexual assault. The Journal Star reported that men were filmed inside the house laughing as women outside chanted “Kick him out!”
