Thursday night, hundreds of Chico State students met on campus to talk about sexual assault, and share their personal experiences. After sharing their stories with one another, then lit candles and hit the streets near campus, walking silently in large groups. The bi-annual "Take Back the Night" walk attracts both men and women. The area around the campus has had a rash of kidnappings and assaults against co-eds, making the night even more meaningful. Chico State student Jera Verboom said she's walking with her mother for someone they know who had recently been raped. Corrie Emmons said he's walking because rape is very hurtful to women, and he said it's time for men to take responsibility, and realize that most of these kinds of crimes are perpetrated by men. At least 11 rapes and/or assaults have been committed against college-aged women around campus within the last year.
