Federal investigation at UNC: University "official compared rape to football," says student

The federal government is investigating the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill after students complained that sexual assault and harassment complaints were not handled properly.

In the complaint, the women describe an atmosphere of sexual violence at the school and allege campus officials allowed a hostile environment with one even comparing rape to a game of football.
