Instagram: Anonymous accounts report sexual assaults

Back to school came along with a worrying trend for over 20 universities and colleges in all USA and United Kingdom. Anonymous Instagram accounts share hundreds of stories of alleged sexual assaults on campus. According to a report Monday by CBS News, these accounts include allegations of rape, harassment, persecution and other forms of abuse.

Many of these anonymous accounts Instagram was released in the summer, and has caught the attention as students return to campus or virtual classes for the fall. Some account managers are also logged in to share ideas and organization for a change.

An open letter posted to an account at Case Western Reserve University, CWRU Survivors, called on the university to carry out reforms, including improvements in the reporting and investigation process following alleged attacks. As of Monday, the bill has communicated more than 500 claims made by current and former students.

In a statement to CBS News, a spokesman for Case Western Reserve University expressed his sympathy and said the issue of sexual violence was being addressed by a student-led team looking at many issues on campus.

One of the administrators of the Instagram account Voices of Brown said that he was inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement and by anonymous social media posts that shared stories of racism in schools.

"The factor of anonymity allows more people to express their stories freely, which means more stories are heard in the audience. "The huge number of stories we all collect in our accounts helps our communities understand that these are not just a few cases here and there, and that there is structural, systemic violence that we must all address together."

In the US, Instagram accounts have been released for academic institutions such as American University, Bard College, UC Berkeley, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, George Washington University, Gettysburg, Northwestern, Rollins, Tulane, the University of Alabama, the University of Texas at Austin, Vassar, the University of Washington and Wesleyan.
