February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month , and Vice President Biden took the opportunity to remind students that dating violence is still a very real problem in our country.  The facts are clear: nearly one in five college women will be the victim of a sexual assault, and one in ten teens will be hurt by someone they are dating. As the Vice President wrote, these are not merely statistics, “these are the people you know: your roommates, your friends, your sisters, and your classmates.”  As the Vice President has often said, we all have an absolute obligation to try to stop abuse when we see it – no matter what. That’s why this Administration is working so hard to confront the problem head on.  Last April, new standards were announced  that make it clear that colleges are responsible for creating campus environments that refuse to tolerate dating violence. And in September, the Vice President launched the “1 is 2 Many”  project – an effort to change attitudes that lead to violence and educate the public on the realities of abuse.  read more
