Why Link “AUC” to California ‘s Sexual Consent Bill ?

Posted on 30. Sep, 2014 by in News

Screen Shot 2014-10-01 at 2.29.27 PM  A photo of  AUC students has been used in Al Youm 7 ‘s recently published news report about California ‘s “Yes means Yes” rule on sexual consent on college campuses.

The main  and only focus of the report is the new law which requires “an affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity”, as part of a law regarding sexual assaults in colleges.

“The State of California approved a law which demands a clear consent to engage in sexual activity in colleges, in order to protect the girls from rape assaults, especially under the effect of drugs and alcohol,” Al Youm 7 ‘s report says.

The report which includes four paragraphs about the “sexual consent” law has no mention of AUC or Egypt in any way, and it does not show any possible link to justify the use of a photo from AUC campus.

The report has angered some of the students, wondering about an intention to send a certain message to the Egyptian community about AUC and its students.

What do you think about this ?
