After the “Sciences Porcs” scandal at the beginning of the year or the recent investigation denouncing the extent of rapes and sexual assaults at CentraleSupelec, more and more students are denouncing the violence within their schools. establishments.


According to the Student Observatory on Sexual and Gender-Based Violence in Higher Education, in France 1 in 10 female students would have been the victim of sexual assault during their studies and 1 in 20 female students of rape.

Between omerta and ignorance of what characterizes rape, these figures would be underestimated.

Is the university a place that promotes sexual violence?

How to fight this feeling of impunity which seems to persist in the Grandes Ecoles?
