We cannot be surprised that Betsy DeVos has expressed her intent to protect the rights of accused rapists. The woman she put in charge of the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights, Candace Jackson, claims that she is a survivor of a campus assault but she is obsessed with the rights of accused rapists.

DeVos will not protect other groups that suffer genuine harm, such as students defrauded by unscrupulous for-profit colleges. She will not help transgender students who are bullied. Segregation is of no concern to her. She has dismissed thousands of complaints about discrimination against students with disabilities.

Young women who suffer the misfortune of being raped on campus should make sure they have witnesses or forget about reporting it. If they are raped by another student off-campus, tough luck.
