(Huffington Post)

DeVos is ignoring the “terrifying reality” that 1 in 4 women are sexually assaulted while on campus, according to Nita Chaudhary, co-founder of the national women’s advocacy group UltraViolet.

“Holding the tournament on this course sends the exact wrong message,” says Shaunna Thomas, co-founder of UltraViolet, a group that advocates for women’s rights. It’s been pushing the USGA for months to move this tournament to another course.
