From the Daily Caller:

Reputable scholars who investigate claims of a “rape epidemic” readily conclude that it is not simply exaggerated but a hoax.  “The rape ‘epidemic’ doesn’t actually exist,” writes R Street Institute’s Caroline Kitchens, formerly of the American Enterprise Institute, who documents how statistics claiming that “one in five women has been sexually assaulted while she’s in college” are concocted.   Heather MacDonald of the Manhattan Institute calls the claims “preposterous.”  “There is no such epidemic,” she states flatly.  “There is simply no reason to concede any factual legitimacy to the rape hysterics.”
