An Inclusive Litany

6/5/00

A young woman claimed to have been sexually assaulted within sight of a large antirape rally at the University of Massachusetts. She later admitted that she had made the whole thing up—cutting herself with a knife, tossing the knife under a car, and then walking across the street, where she claimed the crime took place. In a prior allegation of sexual assault, another woman said she successfully fought off three male attackers, then ran for help after being hit with "a pepper-spray-like substance."
