This paper will begin by tracing the historical relationship between sexual violence and race, and then describe how neoliberalism compounded upon this history to create a carceral feminist response to sexual violence. After outlining the neoliberal trends present in national responses to sexual violence, I will narrow my focus to responses within higher education and attempt to demonstrate the parallels between them. I will focus on the commonalities of punitive responses and individualization, which result in a culture of compliance in higher education. I will conclude by describing alternatives to the current way higher education executes Title IX policy.
