The White House adviser on violence against women will give the keynote speech at an event focusing on sexual assault on college campuses.

Lynn Rosenthal's address Friday at the University of Cincinnati will kick off activities including a panel discussion and an interactive workshop for students. It's all open to the public.

The university, the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence, and Women Helping Women are co-sponsoring the event. Other sponsors include the UC Women's Center and the Fellows of the Graduate School at UC.

The executive director of the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence says Ohio should create a culture that supports survivors of sexual violence and prevents that violence.

A White House task force report says one in five women is sexually assaulted while in college.White House adviser focuses on sexual assault
