8,000 reported cases by pupils of alleged sexual assault, rape, and harassment at some of the UK’s leading private schools
Dulwich College has said it has reported its boys accused of sex crimes to police
Many of the accounts describe allegations of sexual harassment and sexual violence carried out against young women by young men who are at school or college or university with them or part of the same social groups.
Pupils and some former pupils at some of the UK’s leading private schools have been making allegations of rape, sexual assault, and sexual harassment, and about 8,000 such cases have been reported by pupils.
The anonymous claims are being shared online, often on the Everyone’s Invited website which urges young sexual abuse survivors to share their stories, and are growing all the time.
Watch video a conversation with Ms. Soma Sara report of ‘Rape Culture’ against UK private school girls
“Rape culture” was a problem for all schools and sexual assault had become ‘’normalized’’, said Media Ms. Soma Sara, founder of the Everyone’s Invited website.
She further described the experience raised or reported as “Sexual harassment, groping at a Christmas party, image-based abuse, revenge porn, non-consensual sharing of intimate photos – and just general sexism and misogyny,” she said, describing the experiences being raised.
Anonymous testimonies listed on the site do not reveal the identity of the pupils or their attackers, but many schools are named. Many of the incidents recounted took place outside school or university premises.
A former male pupil at Dulwich College has written an open letter which includes 250 anonymous stories from girls who went to nearby schools alleging they suffered from the behaviour of some Dulwich students.
