One of Yale’s secret societies hosted a “Dominatrix” Party that may have led to two sexual assaults. Yale’s Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity allowed another senior student group, the Women in Power Society (WIPS), to use one of their rooms on February 8, presumably this is where the sexual assaults took place.

While the group asserts that its intention is to promote female empowerment, the society has been connected with BDSM imagery. The group even had a Pinterest board called “Dom,” featuring, “a series of sorta disturbing images portraying uncomfortable situations and lots of leather,” according to the Yale Herald who has since deleted the article.

According to the Yale Daily News, authorities received two separate emails from two individuals claiming to have been sexually assaulted on February 8th. “On the same night of Feb. 8, a private party in connection with the Women in Power Society (WIPS) senior society, took place at the SigEp fraternity house. Nine students interviewed said that party had a ‘dominatrix’ theme. Several attendees declined to provide additional details about the annual party.”

The Yale Sigma Phi Epsilo President released a statement saying, “The members of Yale’s SigEp chapter were shocked and saddened to hear allegations that sexual assault may have occurred in our facility on an evening when the chapter had leased event space to another campus organization. At this time, SigEp does not believe that the allegations are against members of their chapter.”

Clearly something went down that night but members of the Women in Power Society aren’t commenting out of “respect” for the victims. Something happened at this party. School administration didn’t know it was going on and Sigma Phi, who rented out their space to them, didn’t ask any questions. Now two women are alleging sexual assault. This is why a university probably shouldn’t have “elite secret societies.”
