An online cam¬≠paign to bring atten¬≠tion to Norman High School and local law enforcement‚Äôs response to the alleged rape of 3 female Norman High School stu¬≠dents, all by the same male stu¬≠dent, cul¬≠mi¬≠nated in a mass stu¬≠dent walk¬≠out and rally in front of the school . The cam¬≠paign and demon¬≠stra¬≠tion were orig¬≠i¬≠nally orga¬≠nized by a coali¬≠tion of stu¬≠dents, their par¬≠ents, and citizens.

According to a story pub¬≠lished in the Norman Transcript, the protest is in response to the per¬≠ceived fail¬≠ure of the school admin¬≠is¬≠tra¬≠tion to pro¬≠vide ade¬≠quate pro¬≠tec¬≠tion from bul¬≠ly¬≠ing of the alleged vic¬≠tims. The arti¬≠cle goes on to iden¬≠tify stu¬≠dent Danielle Brown, her mother, Kim Wright, and her aunt, Stacey Wright as spokesper¬≠sons for the group.

School prin¬≠ci¬≠pal Scott Beck responded to the charges in a let¬≠ter released to par¬≠ents on . In the let¬≠ter, Beck said the school took the strongest dis¬≠ci¬≠pli¬≠nary action against against the alleged assailant per¬≠mit¬≠ted by Oklahoma law. The school is co√∂per¬≠at¬≠ing with local law enforce¬≠ment in inves¬≠ti¬≠gat¬≠ing the alleged crimes.

#YesAllDaughters spokesper¬≠son Stacy Wright is quoted in the Transcript arti¬≠cle as claim¬≠ing that 1 of the alleged vic¬≠tims was har¬≠rassed upon her attempt to return to school after being raped. She was ver¬≠bally attacked when she walked into school. It was a group of girls who threat¬≠ened her. She had just made it to the doors on her first day back, said Wright.

Norman Police Department Captain Tom Easley declined com¬≠ment due to the ages of the accused rapist, the alleged har¬≠rassers, and the alleged victims.
