STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - More than 100 Penn State University students and other supporters are demonstrating against a fraternity accused of posting photos of nude or partly nude women, some asleep or passed out, on an invitation-only Facebook page.

The protest took place Friday during a snowstorm in front of the main administration building on the State College campus.

Protest organizers are asking that the university put frat brothers at Kappa Delta Rho involved with the Facebook page on interim suspension. They also want the school to sever ties with the now-suspended fraternity chapter.

Student Peri Hahraman of Columbus, Ohio, says women cannot feel safe at fraternities. She says she's taking part in the rally to help change that culture.

A sign made out of a bed sheet read: "Rape culture lives there."
