USC students have filed a complaint with the US Dept. of Education regarding the school's handling of cases of sexual assaults.

This week, USC joined a growing list of colleges under federal investigation for its handling of sexual assault on campus.

One of the women who filed a federal complaint has blogged about being raped by an ex-boyfriend, and she's not alone. Students across the country are using the Internet to bring attention to sexual assault cases they believe are being ignored by their schools.

Many of these women are part of a group called the IX Network. It's a coalition of students across the nation who are demanding their colleges change the way they deal with sexual violence.

We're joined by Annie Clark,  a recent graduate from University of North Carolina and a member of the IX Network.
