The horrifying statistics on rape and sexual assault on college campuses in this country speak for themselves. Studies show that about one in five undergraduate women has experienced such an attack or an attempted attack at some point during their college years, but only 12 percent of incidents are reported. Why is justice so difficult to find in what is supposed to be a protected and enlightened atmosphere of a college or university? Advocates say there are numerous institutional barriers that discourage reporting, including administrators who treat reports of sexual assault with disbelief and on-campus judicial systems that are difficult for a victim to navigate.

But feminist playwright Eve Ensler, who promotes her work around the world, is coming to Carroll Community College for a local rendition of her play Friday. It is the county's fifth performance of The Vagina Monologues, and organizers said they have been hoping for years to lure Ensler here. Still, given Ensler's celebrity and worldwide travels, activist and organizer Sylviea Tejeda can't believe the celebrated playwright is visiting.

On college campuses across Maryland -- where the exchange of strong ideas and opinions is not only expected, but encouraged -- there is largely a collective silence concerning American involvement in Iraq. "When we first entered the war, people were protesting and there was a lot of discussion in the classroom," said Brooke Barrash, president of Towson University's College Republicans, which supported the war. "Now that we've been there for some time, people don't pay attention. It just seems like old news."
