International Student Edition
A recent article stated that female international students are the main target of sexual assaults in Australian universities. Reasons: Language and cultural barriers as well as honor values prevent these students from reporting the cases, thus making them the weakest links before their offenders. The article didn’t mention the circumstances under which these assaults take place but from experience, bad company oftentimes leads to these sad incidents. As female international students, we need to be careful who we associate with in the new country, whether it be classmates/roommates or even church members. We can easily be led astray or become prey if we’re not grounded in the Lord and sober.
