Leadership Alliance Activist on ABC's Nightline Spelman College
SPELMAN COLLEGE Leadership Alliance activist Miranda Ward recently appeared on ABC’s Nightline with Ted Koppel. Ward spoke on a panel of college students discussing a recent study on dating and violence. The study, published by the Journal of the American Medical Association, focuses on high school girls and found that one in five girls interviewed had been physically or sexually abused by a boyfriend. The study also found that the presence of violence dramatically increases the likelihood of girls engaging in other risky behaviors such as binge drinking, drug abuse and suicide attempts.
