Despite legislative measures such as Title IX, gender discrimination continues to be a pervasive issue throughout American society. Even Yale University, one of America’s most prestigious universities, has recently come under fire for alleged Title IX violations. Although the university has yet to release a statement specifically addressing the allegations contained in the recently filed Complaint, officials at Yale University have been quick to stand behind how they treat grievances filed for any type of discrimination, including gender-based discrimination.
Yale University was also recently in the spotlight last October when a video of fraternity brothers chanting pro-rape slogans was posted on YouTube.com. The video has since been condemned by the alleged fraternity’s board of directors.
