Critics say campus sex assault rules fall short and need an overhaul. Heralded as a game-changer for female college athletes, Title IX, the 1972 federal civil rights law that prohibits sexual discrimination in education, also is supposed to protect sexual assault and harassment accusers, giving them options like changing dormitories or even getting their attackers removed from the school. In practice, the law's protections fall short, accusers and advocates say.
