Will the 1,000 show up to block Will from entering the campus? That would be something to watch.

Nearly 1,000 Students, Faculty Demand Miami University Cancel George Will Speech

Miami University of Ohio has no plans to cancel a speech by Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist George Will, despite protests over the Washington Post writer’s comments about campus sexual assault.

Will is scheduled to speak at the university’s Farmer School of Business on Wednesday. Nearly 1,000 students, faculty and alumni of Miami have signed an open letter opposing the decision to invite Will. The letter argues that his appearance sends the wrong message about “the tolerance of rape culture and predatory sexual behavior at Miami University.”

In June, Will wrote that being a victim on a college campus had become a “coveted status,” using sexual assault survivors as an example. His column placed the words “sexual assault” and “survivors” in quotations, which many interpreted as him questioning the validity of such attacks. Will’s column sparked outrage, especially among women who had experienced sexual violence.

In the face of fierce backlash from activists, sexual assault survivors, U.S. Senators, newspaper editorial boards and others, Will has stood by his comments, saying he was concerned about false rape allegations.
