President Obama will sign a presidential memorandum today, creating a task force to better protect college students from sexual assault.

A new report from the White House Council on Women and Girls says no one in America is more at risk of being raped or assaulted than college women. The report says one in five women have been sexually assaulted at college but only 12 percent report the assault.

Nedra Pickler has been covering the story for the Associated Press and joins Here & Now's Robin Young with details.
