"It Was Rape" Film Screening

Tue, 23 Apr 2013 7:00 PM

7 p.m.
Memorial Hall Auditorium

In recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness month, join us for a film screening of "It Was Rape." In this film, eight women tell their diverse personal stories of sexual assault, from a Midwestern teenager trying alcohol for the first time to a Native American woman gradually coming to terms with her abusive childhood. Gripping and emotional, this film is an opportunity to empathize with people—not just absorb faceless statistics—and to puncture the silence and denial that allow sexual assault to thrive. Ultimately, these stories shed light on how this epidemic affects us all. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmmaker, Jennifer Baumgardner.

Free. Contact Kristi McDonnell at mcdonnkc@jmu.edu for more information.
