Hontiveros reminds Ateneo: Safe Spaces Act does not protect identities of adult sex offenders

Heads up, Ateneo de Manila University.

Senator Risa Hontiveros has reminded her alma mater Ateneo about the provisions of the Spaces Act that “defends the harassed, not the harassers.”

“I wish to set the record straight: the Safe Spaces Act defends the harassed, not the harassers. The law protects identities of the accused if they are minors, not adult sex offenders,” she said.

“No space is safe for as long as sex offenders are allowed to thrive,” said the author of the landmark safe space law.

Ateneo earlier announced it has imposed sanctions on those accused of sexual misconduct but refused to identify details including identities of the concerned individuals.
