Sexual assault prevention strategies can perpetuate victim-blaming. Instructing women to watch their drinks, stay with friends, and limit alcohol consumption implies that it is women’s responsibility to avoid “mistakes” and their fault if they fail. Emphasis on the precautions
women should take—particularly if not accompanied by education about how men should change their behavior—may also suggest that it is natural for men to drug women and take advantage of them. Additionally, suggesting that women should watch what they drink, trust party-mates, or spend time alone with men asks them to forgo full engagement in the pleasures of the college party scene.
Victim-blaming also serves as a way for women to construct a sense of status within campus erotic hierarchies
culture develops in response to institutional arrangements. Without change in institutional arrangements, efforts to change cultural beliefs are undermined by the cultural commonsense generated by encounters with institutions. Efforts to educate about sexual assault will not succeed if the university continues to support organizational arrangements that facilitate and even legitimate men's coercive sexual strategies.
Sexual assault education should shift in emphasis from educating women on preventative measures to educating both men and women about the coercive behavior of men and the sources of victim-blaming
